gold stars all round

As if One Direction hadn't already won so many awards that it's got to the point where Harry Styles is having to store some in Mama Twist's greenhouse (probably), the lads have got one more to add to the pile today after being named MTV's Stars of 2013. Landing a whopping 40.8million votes, they narrowly beat Justin Bieber to land the hotly contested prize.

It was a pretty close one too, with the Biebs raking in an equally massive 40.5million votes during the month long competition, than got you lot tweeting votes from all over the world to choose who you reckon the biggest global stars of the year are.

The competition was actually pretty much neck and neck the whole way through, with over 117million votes being cast throughout the comp.

“We’ve just found out that you voted us top of the list for the MTV’s Stars of 2013 – thank you so, so much!” Liam said when hearing about the win.

“We heard we racked up over 40 million votes. We can’t believe the hard work – it must have taken you absolutely ages. Thank you so, so much!”

“Party time!” added Louis.

Oh, well only if you insist Luigi. In fact, if you want to treat us all to cheese and pineapple on a stick while you do some sort of sexy dance to a Ke$ha track, that's totally acceptable. We're all friends here, after all.

What do you make of this news? did the right group win and do you think your 372 votes were well cast?
