Justin Bieber has spoken out in support of X Factor contestant Wagner Carillho, admitting that he has become a fan.
Th teen sensation will be performing on the results show this Sunday night and admitted that he thinks the Brazilian singer deserves his place on the show.
The young singer told The Sun:
“I know he isn’t the best singer, but the public want him there. The judges should chill out a bit.”
Justin also criticised Cheryl Cole for hitting out at Wagner on Saturday’s live show, saying;
“I thought she was a little mean to him. He just seems humble and happy to be there.”
Wagner has become the contestant that people love to hate. Bookies William Hill have slashed the odds on him
winning from 100-1 to 10-1 – and called him “the X Factor version of Marmite”.
A spokesman said: “He’s fourth favourite to win and second favourite to be booted off.”
