The All I Want For Christmas singer told Drew, a big fan of his, to “keep [her] head up” following her elimination from the show.
The teenage singer was sent home on Thursday night after a sing-off with Marcus Canty when it was determined they had received the fewest votes after Astro, who was the first to go home in the double elimination.
After the show, Bieber tweeted to Drew, reminding her that he also lost the first competition in which he sang.
“his is just the beginning for u. never say never. best wishes. (sic),” the teenage Canadian pop star said.
Drew had admitted to being a big fan of Justin Bieber during her very first audition for The X Factor, in which she impressed the judges with her own take on the Bieber hit, Baby.
She later admitted in an interview that Bieber would be her dream duet partner, saying,
“I just want to sing with Justin Bieber. I just think he’s amazing and the way he performs is amazing. He looks amazing – he definitely has the looks!”
The remaining X Factor USA acts competing for a $5 million recording contract are: Melanie Amaro, Rachel Crow, Josh Krajcik, Marcus Canty and Chris Rene.
Each of them will perform two tracks on next week’s live show, which airs on Wednesday, December 7, at 8/7c on Fox.
