Selena Gomez took a page from her former BFF Demi Lovato's book. The 'Come & Get It' singer enjoyed dinner out with 'X Factor' finalist Carly Rose Sonenclar!

The duo went to Catch restaurant in New York City on April 24, and spies at the eatery said Gomez and Sonenclar looked like "big and lil' sis." Cute! A source told The New York Post, "Carly looked like she was on cloud nine." Anyone dining out with one of the biggest stars on the planet would probably look pretty happy about it, right?

Gomez, 20, reportedly got Sonenclar, 13, home by curfew -- they left the restaurant around 10PM. Sources think Gomez may be picking up where Lovato, Britney Spears, Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid left off to act as a mentor for the pint-sized powerhouse. And let's be real, Sonenclar can probably offer Gomez a few tips on vocals, too -- the gal's got pipes!

Sonenclar was so excited that she tweeted the above photo with some well wishes for her new pal. We love this new BFF-ship!
