Justin Bieber Backs Ella Henderson In This Year's X Factor


Teen popstar Justin Bieber may be all the way in America and Canada, but that has not stopped him tuning into the British X Factor and he has confirmed that his firm favourite is Ella Henderson.

Justin is said to have chatted to his new friends One Direction about the contestant and admitted to the Daily Star's US reporter, "Ella is an incredible singer."

Justin has nothing but praise for Ella and continued to shower her with compliments.

The 'As Long As You Love Me' singer also drew the comparison between Ella and British singing sensation Adele. "Like Adele she has the songwriting talent as well- her audition song was incredible."

Not only has Ella blown away her mentor Tulisa and brought Nicole Scherzinger to tears with her soulful performances- but she's also fought off fierce competition to become the last girl standing in this year's competition.

Bieber is only one in a long line of celebrities to make their love for Ella public.

Even Adele has spoken out about being a fan of the sixteen-year-old. She  tweeted about the hopeful saying "Ella Henderson on X Factor is incredible" before adding her well wishes for the duration of the competition "I LOVE her!! Good luck xx"

Ella will be taking on a classic in tonight's competition and fully embracing the Best of British theme. Speaking of her song choice Ella said she thinks it will shock the viewers.
