Everyone has their favorite ‘Voice’ contestant — including Justin Bieber! The pop star took to Twitter on Dec. 12 to reveal that he’s Team Blake all the way, and he’s hoping Billy Gilman takes home the gold at the big finale. See his sweet message, right here.

“Hey Blake…sorry. #teamadam. Good luck Billy,” he tweeted on Dec. 12. Of course, Adam Levine is Billy’s mentor while his buddy Blake Shelton is responsible for country crooner Sundance Head. Justin also revealed that he’s a huge fan of Billy for the same reason everyone else is: they love a good comeback! He capped off the tweet with the hashtag “#comebackstory” to prove that he’s fully invested in the season 11 of the show.
We can totally understand why Justin would be a big fan of Billy. They both rose to fame when they were SUPER young! Justin was just 13 years old when Usher discovered him, and Billy was just 12 when his first single “One Voice” became Top 20 hit on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart in 2000. So, Justin fully understands what it’s like to be in the spotlight so young, and he probably just wants to see his comrade come back!
Billy was so thrilled to hear that Justin is on his side. “No way!” he said EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com after we read him Justin’s tweet. “I like him! I always liked him! Oh my God, Dude! I always loved that song, ‘I just want somebody to love!’ That is so cool, I am so humbled! That is crazy, that is an honor! That is pretty neat!” How cute is that? Good luck Billy!
