Voting Begins Today In MTV's Battle Of The Boy Bands!

Since we first announced it on Friday, we know you guys have probably been waiting with your clicker fingers warmed up and ready to vote in the MOST IMPORTANT ELECTION OF ALL OF TIME: MTV's Battle Of The Boy Bands! So we're happy to declare that voting is now officially open! Cast your vote today in round one -- just like a sports tournament (or whatever), pick your favorite bands from each division: Midwest, West, East and South.

There are some really tough decisions to be made, people. For example, round one sees 98 Degrees up against The Beatles (!!!), The Monkees versus 2ge+her (who's more legit?) and Boyz II Men duke it out with Jodeci, which depending on what side of the fence you're on, could get you physically assaulted in some parts of this country. Vote wisely, y'all.

Check out a list of all 32 competing bands after the jump, and start voting in MTV's Battle Of The Boy Bands today! Voting for round one closes Thursday, April 26, at noon ET. The final winner of MTV's Battle of the Boy Bands will be announced May 7. May the best boy band win!
