[column width=half last=true]Ariana did not win any Moonmen at this year’s VMAs. She wasn’t even nominated. Oh well, there’s always next year Ari![/column]

[column width=half]Best Clothing? Austin is very much a boy’s boy and this is shown through his style. Predominantly wearing sports clothes, hoodies and being a fan of the Beanie hat! Imagine being snuggled up in one of Austin’s hoodies… *sigh*[/column]

[column width=half last=true]We are well jel of Ariana’s wardrobe! Her crystallised corsets that are sported on the ‘Believe’ Tour are sooooo cute! We’re loving her look in the ‘Baby I’ press photos too![/column]

[column width=half]Abs Rating? We very much enjoy staring at and drooling over Austin’s abs. We may be a bit biased but they are very impressive. 9/10[/column]

[column width=half last=true]We haven’t seen Ariana’s abs so we can’t judge. AUSTIN WINS![/column]

[column width=half]Twitter Followers? 3,873,012[/column]

[column width=half]Love Life? Austin Mahone is currently single. This makes us happy.[/column]

[column width=half last=true]It’s all a bit up in the air at that moment. Ariana was dating Janoskian boy Jai Brooks until THAT Bieber photo, now nobody’s really sure what’s going on.[/column]

Now you know the facts it’s all down to you. Vote for your favourite MTV VMAs Pre-Show performer below!

Result: Looks like you don’t agree with MTV voters and think Austin’s moonman belongs to Ari! Luckily she wasn’t nominated in that category too or it could have been pretty tense! 

‘The Way’ songstress conquered this Pop Battle with 75% of the vote!  We love both pop acts and think they should make love, not war… or at least duet!
