With her third studio album coming out and a major world tour beginning this summer, Selena Gomez has officially established herself as a musician. After coming in second place on Season Two of The X-Factor, 13-year-old Carly Rose Sonenclar hopes to do just that -- so who better to turn to as a mentor?

While Carly spent the show learning from pop superstar Britney Spears, it looks like now she's turning to Selena for some girl time and industry advice. The adorable duo snapped a photo together on Wednesday after a dinner meet-up in New York City.

"So fun hanging out with tonight! She is humble and so talented! Have fun at the MTV Upfronts tomorrow!" Carly tweeted, along with the pic. Selena didn't respond on Twitter herself, but she's been busy this week popping in at radio shows all over the city.

"They looked like big sis and little sis," a source tells Page Six of the duo. "Carly looked like she was on cloud nine." Well, any 13-year-old girl aspiring to be a singer would probably be on cloud nine if they got to meet Selena!

Carly has kept it pretty low key since her run on The X-Factor, but she recently signed a deal with Syco Music and is working with the company to find the right label for her. Hmmm... maybe a certain new pal can help out with that!

Do you think Selena is a good mentor for Carly?
