You may remember Kilee Brookbank, the 16-year-old burn victim we wrote about last month.
Well, the survivor of a horrific home explosion received the surprise of a lifetime when her celebrity crush, Justin Bieber, showed up during her interview on 'The Doctors' this week!

The teen was invited onto the show to talk about her miraculous recovery when the Biebs crashed the segment to give her flowers and a kiss on the cheek!
"You inspire us so much," the 20-year-old said. "I think you inspire everybody in this audience, everybody across the world — you inspire me. I wanted to come here — I couldn't just do a video. I wanted to be here!"
In the November explosion, Kilee suffered second and third degree burns over half her body. With the help of therapy and an incredible attitude, she's been able to get her life back.

After the taping, Justin invited the teen, her mother Lori and her step-father Wade into his dressing room where they talked for over an hour.
"Justin was so kind and sweet to all of us," Kilee revealed. "The chance to meet Justin Bieber is something I never thought I would get, and I'm very grateful that this was able to happen."
Her parents were pretty excited too! "The kindness that Justin Bieber showed Kilee, as well as us, was sincere and we greatly appreciate it," Wade and Lori told 'E! News' in a statement.

"Our hope is to show that the transition from burn victim to burn survivor is accomplished through not only excellent medical care, but positive attitude as well," they continued. "She hopes her story can help others."
No one deserved a visit like this more than Kilee! We send our best wishes as she continues to recover.
