When Justin Bieber performs on the finale of "The X Factor (US)" next week, he will not take the stage alone. Rumor has it, the 17-year-old singer will bring with him one of the former top 10 contestants, Drew Ryniewicz, who is a big fan of him. Their performance reportedly will be accompanied by music veteran Stevie Wonder.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the threesome have taped their performance on December 14 for a later broadcast. They allegedly are going to cater the crowd with a rendition of two yuletide classics "The Christmas Song" and "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town" which are listed in Bieber's Platinum-certified album "Under the Mistletoe".
Drew was never shy proclaiming her love for Bieber since day 1 she appeared on the U.S. version of "The X Factor". She caught the attentions of Simon Cowell, Nicole Scherzinger, Paula Abdul and L.A. Reid right from the beginning when she entered the audition room by playing her own spin on "Baby".
The 14-year-old aspiring singer from Chino Valley, Arizona was mentored by Cowell during the bootcamp. She, along with Astro, was eliminated on the sixth week of the talent show after failing to impress three judges in a final showdown against Marcus Canty. She chose to sing Roxette's "Listen to Your Heart" back then.
Shortly after her elimination, Bieber reached out to console her on Twitter. "Keep your head up. I lost my first competition too. this is just the beginning for u. never say never," he tweeted. The message apparently helped lift up her spirit as she posted, "Ended up to be a good day. Had a great experience on this show."
