From Arizona comes 14-year-old Drew Ryniewicz, who is a self-professed fan of Justin Bieber. She even managed to render his song “Baby” in a sweet and soulful manner that impressed the judges of The X Factor. She survived the group auditions during Bootcamp and soon found her way to the Judges’ Homes, where she was chosen by Simon Cowell to become part of the Top 17 contestants.
FOX’s The X Factor is a reality competition looking for the next great entertainer. From those who have auditioned, judges Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger and L.A. Reid handpick several contestants who might have just what they’re looking for. After a rigorous process, only one will end up with a $4 million recording contract with Epic Records, plus $1 million to spend on their own. The winner will also be starring in their own Pepsi commercial.
