The academic year is winding down, which means PopCrush's annual Prom King and Queen competition is heating up! Sixteen of our favorite stars are vying for the crowns -- and it's up to fans to choose the winners. In Round 1, Selena Gomez is facing off against Bella Thorne. Who should move one step closer to being crowned queen?

Former Disney darling Selena Gomez has established herself as a singer, actress, model and Instagrammer extraordinaire. One of Sel's best qualities is her ability to be so open with her fans. (Case in point: Her tear-filled opening to "The Heart Wants What It Wants.") Backed by a legion of loyal Selenators, we totally think Selena is ready to step up to take the prom queen crown.

From the big screen to the red carpet, Bella Thorne turns everything she touches to gold. It's hard to list all of her many accomplishments, but here are the highlights: Landing a Disney Channel show, writing a book series, owning the fashion and killing it on social media. She's unstoppable, which is why with think she's the perfect choice for prom queen!

Who should move on to the semi-finals of the 2015 Prom King and Queen competition? You can vote for Selena Gomez or Bella Thorne once an hour until the polls close at 3PM ET on May 7.
