Adele`s tweet inspires `The X Factor` contestant

London: Singer Ella Henderson, a participant in Britain`s reality show ‘The X Factor’, says Adele`s encouraging tweet helped her gain confidence about herself.

The 16-year-old says she lost over two kg weight in order to look like a star but it was Adele`s tweet that helped her accept herself, reports a website.

Adele, 24, sent a message on Twitter right after her first performance last month. It said: "Ella Henderson on `The X Factor` is absolutely incredible! I Love her!! Good luck!."

"Having Adele know who I am is incredible," Henderson said.
