Miley Fans Call On Ancient Power Of The Twerk in Best Song of Summer Race!

VMA Nominee is in second place behind 1D in the fan-voted category but Smilers haven't given up.

Attention Smilers: If you want Miley Cyrus to score the VMA for Best Song of the Summer, you best take some pointers from your fellow fans, who are flooding Twitter with support for the “Can’t Stop” singer.

The 2013 Video Music Awards are just five days away, and currently One Direction is in the lead for the fan-driven category, which fans can weigh in on via hashtag on Twitter, Instagram and Vine. Miley fans, however, are not taking their second place status lying down.

Some, like @smiler4life3, are avidly reminding Smilers where the BANGERZ musician came from, tweeting images of the singer over the years.

Others, like @MileyUpdatedUS, are sharing snaps of Miley in her favorite tongue-baring pose to get the fandom stoked on voting, while folks like @mileymyobsessed are calling upon the ancient power of the twerk.

Some Smilers, like @BRMileyUpdates, are taking a more sobering approach, reminding fans: “We are still losing. Keep tweeting #votemiley.”

Our favorite fan — @MilesbianDoll — however, is the most creative of the bunch, revealing her brand-new Miley cut: “Last selfie of the day! Hope my hair looks better tomorrow after dyeing,” she tweets. Twerk it, girl — and keep voting #VoteMiley!
