Justin Bieber and One Direction are squaring off in an intense MTV Stars of 2013 competition in which their fan bases — and hundreds of thousands of supporters of dozens of other popular performers — are using the Twitter topic #MTVStars to vote for music world supremacy.

The popularity contest runs through December 8, although the leader board will be blacked out for the final two days of voting.

MTV will announce the winner on December 21.

As of this writing, Bieber has been mentioned in 748,043 tweets — just ahead of One Direction’s 734,973 tweets.

The Wanted, Little Mix and Nicki Minaj round out the current Top 5.
