Justin Bieber Tweets Support To Drew Ryniewicz After 'X Factor' Elimination

From one teen prodigy to another, Justin tells Drew to ‘never say never.’ Was she the wrong person voted off?

She was adorable. She was talented. But unfortunately, she didn’t have that “x factor.” Everyone was shocked when 14-year-old Drew Ryniewicz was eliminated on the Dec. 1 episode of The X Factor – including fellow teen phenom Justin Bieber. “Keep your head up,” Justin tweeted at Drew following her elimination. “I lost my first competition too. This is just the beginning for u. Never say never. Best Wishes.”

And it sounds like an endorsement from the Biebs was exactly what Drew needed to cushion the crushing blow.

“Thank you for your love!” Drew tweeted to her almost-100,000 followers. “I’ll miss the xfactor but have a lot more in stor for you all! Upbeat? Yes. … Justin bieber follows me now!”

Of course, Drew wasn’t the only contestant who was axed last night. There was also outrage over 15-year-old rapper Astro‘s ousting, with celebs like Frankie Muniz tweeting their disapproval.

What do you think, X Factor fans? Should Drew and Astro have been eliminated last night, or should another contestant have made their grand exit?

Too all you who said it’s Nicole’s fault that Rachael went home, NOT!!!! It’s America’s fault because they didn’t keep her or vote. Stop Bashing and blaming because Marcus is very good too, it’s no body’s fault, it’s a show, especially not Nicole’s fault, she a judge for god’s sake?????!!!!!!! DUH~~~

You are right about one thing. It is a competition.. Nicole is a judge and as such she should have been able to make a decision. Neither contestant was one of hers and she just didn’t want to be the “bad guy” and vote someone off. She herself expected Rachel to have the popular vote since Marcus had been in the bottom three for the third time and Rachel had never been in it. If you can’t judge then don’t be a judge on the show. It’s just that simple. Sad that people like you can’t see what is right in front of your face.

Why was Nicole crying after the elimination of Rachel, maybe because she knew she picked the wrong one, and only picked her because she has a thing against Simon, shame on you Nicole, you should cry, that was wrong, and sorry, but Simon is usually right.

Justin has plenty x factors in every aspect. He is really a super talented, natural singer.

That was so nice of Justin reaching out Drew who could eventually also be a known singer in couple of years down the road.

Actually Paula and Nicole should be voted off. I think Drew is far more mature than both of them. Should change the judges for the next X factor! Nicole, you are just famous for your looks not your voice! Yes, paula too. A hypocrite. Come on, she is only 14, you both are just too cruel. Just because you hate simon. You dont know what talent is. Dont even talk about talent, cuz you aint have a clue. Drew is going to be on top soon! Drew FTW!!

I think that Paula and Nicole shouldn’t be allowed to sit next to each other. They keep looking to each other for support and advice when it’s time to make the hard decisions. Sit them at opposite ends of the table since Simon and LA Reid obviously can both easily make up their minds. They shouldn’t be allowed to give each other advice on judging. If you need advice, don’t be a judge.

By now the public should see that the xfactor is just a scam.giving the judges a chance to vote off a contestant is a prime example of the unfair nature of this show.marcus was in the bottom 2 weeks in a row which says he’s not that good.drew on the other hand had never been ln the bottom and sang a far superior save me song.if the show is based on what the public thinks according to the votes it should be obvious that marcus needed to go.paula could of voted for drew and allowed for the tie to go to the polls.yet she chose to take a young girl fate in her own hands and eliminate her.i thought that was unprofessional and extremely hurtfull.it’s obvious she lacks any type of knowledge in this industry as indicated by her groups being eliminated week after week yet she decided to allow her vote to send that poor girl home.i will not watch this show next season if she is back on tha panel of judges.i am really appaled by her callousness.if u agree please reply.

I really felt for Drew. Both of the women judges have treated her unfairly – they seem like bitter, inferior women when they behave so immaturely. Drew was by far the superior performer last night. I really like Marcus, but he screeched and begged and that was no fun to watch. I really love Chris Rene’s heartfelt performances and style, but he and the little girl should have gone home, based on over-all performance levels. Drew and Astro are little phenoms… and I think Astro was voted off because of his attitude. Come on, he’s a kid – he’s allowed to behave emotionally sometimes. Drew was my favorite overall performer… bummer. Paula and Nicole both just wanted to go against Simon. So immature… emabarrasing!

I AGREE!!!
Both those women need to be replaced.
I’ve had enough of LA Reed too!
Drew was cool and I really thought she was unique.

Justin Bieber is incredibly talented. Plays instruments self taught. Can really sing. Has multiple #1 albums including his newest. Stop being jealous. Their is a reason he is who he is and he isnt going anywhere. Watch his film and you will understand.

Are you kidding me?! Justin Beiber a teen prodigy?! He is a no-talent, so-called “sensation” who is now contacting a TRUE talent by the name of Drew Ryniewicz who has a HUGE future in the music business. She is the TRUE talent and we can only hope that Justin Beiber will one day simply fade away just like all the other so-called no-talent acts of the moment. JB your 15-minutes of fame ended years ago! GO AWAY!
