Make-A-Wish Recipient Grace Kesablak Talks Meeting Justin Bieber, Wants To Meet Nicki Minaj Next
Make-A-Wish recipient Grace Kesablak captured the world's heart last weekend after she met Justin Bieber at the Young Hollywood Awards.
On Tuesday, Grace and her mom, Maral, continued their whirlwind Hollywood adventure, visiting Access Hollywood Live where they spoke with Billy Bush and guest co-host Kristin Cavallari about their Bieber meeting.
"It was very fun and exciting. I loved meeting Justin Bieber. He was very sweet and nice. I was very happy to see him and very excited," Grace, 11, said of her meeting with the pop star.
After taking the stage with Bieber, who was honored with the night's Champ of Charity Award, Grace explained that she was a bit overwhelmed.
"I was kind of nervous. I didn't know what to do. It was very shocking, but at the same time, exciting to be on stage with him," she said.

Maral explained that she is hopeful that Grace's health will continue to improve.
"A year ago she was diagnosed with cancer when she just turned 10 years old. She finished her treatments in February… and now every three months she gets a CT and MRI done for the next three years," Maral told Billy and Kristin.
"She's doing well," Maral added. "The tumor has not gotten bigger. It is the same size and it hasn't spread."
In addition to Bieber, Grace told Billy and Kristin that she also met Cody Simpson last weekend.
So, who is next on Grace's celebrity meet list?
"Maybe Nicki Minaj," Grace said with a smile.
