Start voting for your favorites right now!

Well, I'm glad I didn't bet any money on my MTV Musical March Madness bracket, because I could never have predicted what just went down.

The second round of competition just wrapped up, and there were so many surprises, upsets and shockers, so let's get right into it.

Vote In The Third Round Of Our Musical March Madness Bracket!

Former MMM champs Tokio Hotel and Ed Sheeran faced off, and while we thought this would be a tight race, Tokio Hotel fans proved that they are in it to win it, easily eliminating the pop star. Tokio Hotel will now take on Imagine Dragons who beat out MTV Artist To Watch Ryn Weaver.

5 Seconds of Summer couldn't seem to hold on, as they lost out to Thirty Seconds to Mars. 30STM will take on Paramore, while Lana Del Rey will now see if she can best Fall Out Boy to make it to the final four.

We also have to highlight the Demi Lovato vs. Action Bronson match-up. This unexpected face-off proved to be the tightest of the second round, with Action leading Demi most of the way. However, the Lovatics came out in full force to vote and pushed their girl ahead, taking 52% of the votes. Demi will now try her chances against Walk The Moon, who defeated MisterWives.

The third round of voting is open until Friday, March 27, when the eight contenders will be narrowed down to the final four. You can help by voting for your favorite as many times as you wish. Be sure to spread the word on Twitter, Instagram, Vine and Tumblr using the hashtag #MMM.
