Ding, ding, ding, kids! It’s time for round two in Lip-Lock Knock-Out, a fight-til-the-death brawl to name the ultimate love song. Did your song make the cut? Or will you be crying bitter tears on this day dedicated to love? Let’s find out!
We started out with 32 jams fighting for the heart-studded crown and now we’re down to 16 strong contenders. Were you rooting for Rihanna’s “Stay”? Well, fittingly, it stuck it out — and it’s facing off against Pink’s “Just Give Me a Reason.” If you were stuck on Britney Spears’ “Perfume,” however, you’re in for a bitter surprise because that scent has faded.
Still, you can take solace in the fact that Miley Cyrus’ similarly fraught banger “Wrecking Ball” has crashed on through to round two, squaring off against admirable competitor “We are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” by Taylor Swift.
Things are getting hot and heavy here, kids, so you better head on over to liplock.mtv.com to cast your vote!
Voting in round two ends on February 18 at 12 p.m. ET, so get voting before it’s too late.
