drew ryniewicz justin bieber Justin Bieber to 'X Factor's' Drew: 'Just the beginning for u'Fifteen year-old Drew Ryniewicz was rather surprisingly eliminated from “The X Factor” Thursday night (Nov. 1). Her mentor Simon Cowell voted for her to stay over Marcus Canty, but the other three judges voted Drew out. She took it very hard, crying audibly as the show ended.

Drew took to Twitter, though, and has expressed her gratitude:

“Hey thank you for your love! I’ll miss the xfactor but have a lot more in stor for you all! Upbeat? Yes.”

But in very exciting news (because Drew is a huge fan), guess who tweeted back at her? Justin Bieber himself. The Biebs says:

“@drewryniewicz keep your head up. I lost my first competition too. this is just the beginning for u. never say never. best wishes.”

What a nice young man that Bieber is. And seriously, if we were Drew right now and (for us) New Kids On the Block tweeted at us, we would be losing. our. minds.
