The X Factor USA contestant Drew Ryniewicz has said she would love to sing alongside Justin Bieber.

The teenager from Arizona wowed the judges during her original audition with a slow, soulful rendition of Bieber's hit track 'Baby'.

Speaking to Fox All Access, she said: "I just want to sing with Justin Bieber. I just think he's amazing and the way he performs is amazing. He looks amazing - he definitely has the looks!"

As for how many times she has seen Bieber's big screen outing Never Say Never, she laughed: "I actually only saw his movie three times!"

Ryniewicz had gone into her audition hoping to wow judge LA Reid, who signed Bieber, saying: "He is a big part of Justin Bieber, the biggest part I would say in his career."

Reid was impressed with her twist on the track, saying: "That was so original. I love how you took it and really made it yours. It was soulful and believable. You are special."

The record executive recently told reporters that while he hadn't spoken to Bieber about Ryniewicz, he remained a big fan of the singer, who is being mentored by Simon Cowell.

"I think she's amazing and really a contender here, a real competitive talent," he said. "Justin is a good sport and takes it all in the right spirit. He doesn't take it seriously when someone says they want to be better than him or beat him. He has a level head and he takes it all in fun."

Ryniewicz will join the rest of The X Factor's Top 17 in performing live for the first time tonight (Tuesday) at 8/7c on Fox.

The judges will then eliminate five acts, leaving just 12 to face America's vote for the first time the next week.
