VOTE NOW! Help Decide The Next Pop Superstar of 2013!

This round closes at 9:00 a.m. EST on Friday, January 11th.

Conor Maynard

What: Turn Around

Who: Conor Maynard

Why: Conor is a worthy UK acolyte of the Justin Timberlake school of pop-star genre-hybrid swag. Just don't compare him to that other guy named Justin.

Austin Mahone

What: Say You're Just a Friend

Who: Austin Mahone

Why: What do you get when you mix Justin Bieber's style with Ryan Lochte's swag? Probably Austin Mahone, a 16-year-old Youtube sensation with a legion of #Mahomies at his beck and call.

Fifth Harmony

What: Anything Could Happen

Who: Fifth Harmony

Why: This girl group's ecstatic cover of Ellie Goulding's "Anything Could Happen" launched them into the X Factor, where they came in third—just as One Direction did in Britain three years ago. Could lightning strike twice?

Union J

What: Call Me Maybe

Who: Union J

Why: The four-piece boy band was formed on Season Nine of the British "X Factor," and though they lost the season, their good looks and stellar harmonies were enough to get them a deal with Sony anyway.
