SINGAPORE - The closest that Nur Haziqah, 19, has come to seeing Justin Bieber so far was when she travelled to the Madame Tussauds wax museum in London and posed with a wax figurine of the Canadian teen pop sensation.

With the two-minute-long video that she submitted to the ST Communities website for the Ultimate Bieber Fan contest which detailed her travel adventures in London, she might just be able to come within touching distance of her idol.

"If I have the chance, I will definitely ask him for a hug, autograph and take lots of pictures to post on Instagram.And I'll most probably not wash my hands forever after shaking hands with him!" says the tourism, leisure and hospitality student at TMC Academy (Singapore).

She is on an exchange programme in Liverpool, England, and spent half a day working on the video.

Bieber, 19, will be in Singapore for the Formula One Grand Prix's closing concert at the Padang Stage on Sept 23.

While he is here, he will do a meet-and-greet with the Straits Times reader who has submitted the best contest entry.

That reader and another 30 fans will each win a pair of tickets to the concert worth $296.

This contest is part of The Straits Times Appreciates Readers (Star) programme, which actively engages and rewards Straits Times readers and the community.
