Ashley Benson Tweets to Save Christina Grimmie on The Voice
It’s official: Christina Grimmie and her fans are not going down without a fight. The Voicefinalist has more than 500,000 followers on Twitter and the not-so-insignificant support of Pretty Little Liarsstar Ashley Benson. Last night, America voted to save Christina from elimination, and Ash was part of the Twitter frenzy.
“#voicesavechristina @TheRealGrimmie,” Ash tweeted yesterday, showing her support for the 20-year-old singer from Marlton, New Jersey. Other celebrities who threw their Twitter support behind Christina included Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez. Not too shabby, but will the support be enough to raise Christina to The Voice victory and garner Team Adam Levine another win?
We’re not surprised Ashley’s The Voice favorite managed to evade elimination. This has been a week of wins for the Pretty Little Liars star. Ash is covering the June/July issue of Complexmagazine, and looking hot doing it. The magazine calls the PLLers this generation’s Spice Girls, and quotes Pretty Little Liars executive producer Marlene King as saying: “Ashley and the rest of the cast recently went to New York for a press tour. When we got off at the airport, there were paparazzi and fans waiting in the baggage claim. It was like watching the Beatles arrive.” With popularity like that — quantified in 2.94 million Twitter followers — the Ashley Benson Twitter bump is a very real thing.

Pretty Little Liars Season 5 premiere on Tuesday, June 10, 2014 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC Family.
