School's back in session, and that means it's time for the first-ever PopCrush Homecoming Court elections! We would have loved to sit in class passing notes to singers like Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Selena Gomez and One Direction's Niall Horan, but we can't figure out who should be elected to our court on our own.

We need your help to choose our Homecoming royalty! We have a separate bracket for male and female candidates, and each round will decide who moves closer to the title of King and Queen. No duo could rule without a little help, so the runners-up will be crowned Prince and Princess, and the third-place winners will earn the title of Duke and Duchess.

Check out all of the nominees below, and click through on the buttons to start voting for the pop candidates. Round 1 will close on Oct. 23 at 3PM EST, so don’t delay!

Soon after that, we'll move on to the next round of voting to get closer to crowning the King, Queen, Prince, Princess, Duke and Duchess of PopCrush's Homecoming Court of 2013!
