Christina Grimmie has impressed the judges throughout the entire season of ‘The Voice’, and she even commanded the attention of Justin Bieber! Click to see what Justin tweeted to Christina!
Christina Grimmie is heading into the finals tonight, May 20, on The Voice, but if she doesn’t win, she’s already won over tons of celebs — including Justin Bieber! The 20-year-old YouTube star told us all about her huge following — keep reading for her EXCLUSIVE interview!
Justin Bieber Wants Christina Grimmie To Win ‘The Voice’
During the May 19 live finals when Christina sang three stunning songs, she tweeted with her huge fan following (#GrimmieForTheWin was trending worldwide), and one of her fans happened to be the Biebs! Christina retweeted Justin who tweeted out to his nearly 52 million followers that he’s supporting the contestant. What more could you ask for?!
Apparently Christina’s coach Adam Levine reached out to Justin because he tweeted in support of Christina Grimmie during the semifinals — Christina then retweeted the Biebs one week after, during the final live performance.

Justin is also a fan of Josh Kaufman who is on Usher’s team — he tweeted to vote for Josh on May 19! Usher, of course, helped discover Justin from YouTube and is commonly credited with his huge success. Glad to see there’s no bad blood between Usher and Justin, but who is Justin really rooting for?!
Justin isn’t the only celeb who’s taken to Twitter to support Christina. After she performed Lil Wayne‘s “How To Love,” he tweeted the he’d sign her immediately. Wow!
Much much luv for Christina Grimmie!!!! That was dope ma! I’d sign ya right up!

Christina Admits That She Has A Huge Internet Following — Is It Unfair?
Justin Bieber and Lil Wayne are proof that Christina already has high-profile fans, but is her huge online following unfair? (She has over 500,000 Twitter followers and is approaching 3 million YouTube subscribers.)
Many viewers of The Voice think Christina has an unfair advantage, since the show is intended for amateur singers.
“You know what, I do get a lot of heat,” Christina told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY on May 19, after the finals. “I have been doing YouTube for 5 years, and I worked very hard to get those fans. It wasn’t something that just happened. So I don’t want people to think that it is unfair because I wrestled with that.”
Regardless, Christina has proven to be a hugely talented singer (did you see her take on Elvis last night?) and she is so thankful for her fan base.
“My fans have been with me for 5 years, I am very proud of and have been with me every step of the show,” Christina told us backstage. “Regardless of what people say, I am so happy about them.”
HollywoodLifers, do you think it’s unfair that Christina has a huge YouTube following? Do you think that Justin Bieber’s support will help her win the competition? Let us know if you’re voting for Christina, Jake or Josh!
