Valentine’s Day may have come and gone, but we’ve still got a few rounds left in our Lip-Lock Knock-Out, a fight-til-the-death brawl to name the ultimate love song. Round Three kicks off today; did your favorite love jam hang on — or get kicked to the curb?
We started out with 32 songs fighting for the lovey-dovey title and then whittled those down to 16. Now, we’re down to the elite 8.
Directioners didn’t get the kiss-off this time around, as “Kiss You” has hung on, facing off now against Ariana Grande‘s “The Way.” Meanwhile, Selena Gomez came and got it with “Come & Get It,” which is now squaring off against Ciara‘s “Body Party.”
Miley Cyrus and Fifth Harmony are currently having a battle of the break-up songs with “Wrecking Ball” staring down “Miss Movin’ On,” while Pink is going strong with “Just Give Me A Reason,” which has been matched up with Bruno Mars‘ “When I Was Your Man.”
It’s been a rough and tumble round all around, with the likes of Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga and Rihanna left in the proverbial dust. From here on out, things will only get more intense, so make sure to head on over to liplock.mtv.com to cast your vote!
Voting in round three ends on February 19 at 12 p.m. ET, so get voting before it’s too late.
