Stan Walker on The X Factor NZ

Stan Walker’s career was launched with a bang when he won the seventh and last season of Australian Idol in 2009. Before that, he was working in a Queensland menswear shop and singing in church.

Willy Moon, who originally hails from Wellington, is a writer, musician and producer who shot to prominence in 2011 with the release of his stunningly original homemade song I Wanna Be Your Man. Subsequently, his track Yeah Yeah, was picked up by Apple for their international iPod campaign and in the process made the talented Moon a worldwide star.

Natalia Kills was born in Bradford in the UK. By the age of 18, she’d moved to Hollywood to start a music career and it was there she chanced to meet the internationally-renowned performer and producer who instantly recognized Kills’ talent, and signed her to his imprint at Interscope Records.
