Stan Walker and Melanie Blatt returning for 2015 X Factor NZ

There is no sign of Ruby Frost or Daniel Bedingfield in TV3’s updated X Factor NZ judges page, however it looks like Stan Walker and Melanie Blatt will be back next year – their profiles last updated this morning to include their latest work.

    They must’ve seen the comments on the Facebook page and they have taken the profiles off their website lol. BUSTED 😛

      Oh they have too! well that just confirms it…

  • Tania

    Oh NO!!! Having a judge (Mel) who says that Rihanna is not a good role model because she can’t sing is not good! Stan just loves himself a bit too much.

    • K

      I liked Mel mostly, TOTALLY agree about Stan!!

    • jack

      Mel was a good judge but her song choices wearnt the best. I like her honesty and most of the time i agreed with her.

    I notice Delta Goodrem is in NZ so I think Delta is one of the judges 🙂

    • K

      Someone else said Delta too. Think you could be on to something there. 🙂

      • Trevor Ashman

        YAY…I quite like Delta 🙂

    • Jack

      Doubt its Delta. Shes touring Australia/NZ at the moment so thats probably why shes here

      • Trevor Ashman

        Yes, I noticed that after I googled 🙂

  • Trevor Ashman

    If Daniel is not a judge, perhaps it’s Natasha 🙂

    • Harrison

      Hopefully!

      • Trevor Ashman

        It does makes sense as they asked Natasha last time but she couldn’t do it so she recommended Daniel to take her place 🙂

        • Harrison

          I wouldn’t be surprised if she didn’t want to do it this time, after all some people were very rude and mean to Daniel 🙁

          • Trevor Ashman

            You are certainly right about that but he ended up being the winning judge so he certainly shut his critics up 🙂

    • Dave Ian Batten

      I think Natasha would be great, but I really liked Daniel in the last season. He added humor. But you have a good point Trevor.

  • Harrison

    I’d expect one of the remaining 2 judges to be in (or have been in) a band.

    • Harrison

      I think Dave Baxter of Avalanche City would be excellent. Or someone from Evermore, Goodnight Nurse, Steriogram, Kids of 88 or Elemeno P.

  • Harrison

    Has anyone thought about Brooke Fraser?

  • Dave Ian Batten

    Daniel should come back.

    • Harrison

      Last year he said he wouldn’t do it again, so unless he changes his mind it’s unlikely.

  • Citizen Cane

    I wonder if Mel performs this year?
