Selena Gomez, you were in love with ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber for so long before things went sour. Now you've got a living, breathing example of a best friend, Taylor Swift, demonstrating that there is life and new love after a broken heart.

Taylor had it with guys after being burned by exes Harry Styles, Jake Gyllenhaal, John Mayer and Joe Jonas. Then she met DJ and music producer Calvin Harris, who has been protective and supportive. She's also gotten to see that there are still great guys out there. Now, Selena, you have to see that the same thing can happen to you.-- Bonnie Fuller

Another past "Idol" also offered encouragement, Fradiani said. During Top 12 week, Carrie Underwood sent the finalists Tiffany bags filled with jewelry and a personalized note.
