Louis Walsh's Take On Natalia Kills' X Factor Sacking Is Pretty Spot On
Despite not knowing who Kills is, the UK XF judge has stated he believes the outspoken singer "will never work again"...
As we previously reported, Kills and hubby Willy Moon were booted off the panel for slamming contestant Joe Irvine after he performing Michael Buble’s 'Cry Me A River' - with the pair accusing him of ripping off Moon’s act.
During an interview on Irish radio show 2FM, Walsh was quizzed about the incident by host Eoghan McDermott, with the music mogul replying: “Number one, I don't know who they are.
“They're just trying to be cruel. They're just trying to make fun of the contestant and you're not supposed to do that.
"You're supposed to judge them and it's unfair and it's wrong and I'm glad they lost their jobs."
He continued: “Come on, you judge people and you're honest and you talk about their voice, not their clothes or their personality because they're amateurs out there on a professional stage and we're supposed to hep them.
"It wouldn't happen on The Voice of Ireland or The Voice UK and it definitely wouldn't happen on the X Factor [UK]."
He added: "It'll be constructive criticism and about the singing. You can't just say things like that especially if you're nobody like these people are, whoever they are."
When informed that Kills is a successful artist in NZ, Louis replied: “She obviously has no class, no taste. She'll never work again I reckon. Who's going to hire her? Nobody.
"It's cruel and it's not right. These shows are supposed to be fun. People sit back and they want to be entertained. They don't want to hear people taking people to pieces."
As for whether he thinks Natalia and Willy were encouraged to be nasty with their feedback, the 62-year old stated: “We've never been told to go for it.
"We just judge people. That's not so hard to do. You judge their singing. You do have a bit of fun with them but you never get too personal and that was an attack on a young guy obviously, who will probably never want to sing again."
He concluded: “I’m glad they've lost their jobs and I'm glad they're in New Zealand. New Zealand deserves these people" before saying, "It's uncomfortable TV and if you make the viewer uncomfortable at home it's bad."
We doubt Natalia will be joining Louis on the UK panel then…
