‘X Factor’ Star Drew to Perform With Justin Bieber + Stevie Wonder on Finale
She’s only 14, but ‘X Factor‘ alum Drew Ryniewicz has already gotten further in the pursuit of her dreams than some people manage in a lifetime. Although she was voted off the show in Week 6, she’s about to enjoy a triumphant return in the season finale — while making one more dream come true in the bargain.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, for her comeback, which was taped Wednesday (Dec. 14) and is scheduled to air next week, Drew performed alongside her idol Justin Bieber. If that wasn’t exciting enough, the duo was joined by the legendary Stevie Wonder.
Though details are being kept under wraps, it’s being reported that they performed two songs (likely ‘The Christmas Song’ and ‘Santa Claus Is Coming to Town’) from Bieber’s bestselling ‘Under the Mistletoe’ holiday album. It was part of a string of holiday shows for Bieber, who will also appear with Drake and Michael McDonald at the 16th Annual Stevie Wonder House Full of Toys benefit concert on Saturday (Dec. 17).
It’s a dream come true for Drew, but it isn’t the first time she’s been in touch with Bieber. The teen heartthrob reached out to her via Twitter after she was eliminated from the competition, telling her, “Keep your head up. I lost my first competition too. This is just the beginning for u. never say never. best wishes.”
From ordinary Arizona teen to TV talent show contestant to sharing the stage with a pair of superstars, it’s certainly been one heck of a year for Drew. How will she manage to top it in 2012? We have no idea, but we’re sure we haven’t heard the last of her.
