Last week, we covered X Factor New Zealand contestant Joe Irvine and how he was bullied by judges Natalia Kills and Willy Moon on his performance, clothes, and style.
Following last week's episode, Kills and Moon were fired from the show. But Irvine made it to the next round and received a TON of support from fans and even other artists!
This week, the contestant took back to the stage to perform an powerful rendition of Hoizer's Church and got a standing ovation from the crowd!!
When he came off stage, Irvine was moved to tears!
