Ultimate Fan Army: Mixers or Beliebers?
For more than a year, fan armies have participated in a variety of polls and debates dedicated to the finest icons in all of pop-music, repping the young pop stars they "stan" for. And now the Tylt wants to honor today's most mobilized fan bases by crowning the Ultimate Fan Army of 2017.
Ultimate Fan Army—it's a cool title to have, but there are NOT any real losers. Y'all have been the absolute best this year, so no one goes home empty-handed: losing fan armies will be honored with their own unique title and the opportunity to pick the next Tylt debate featuring their favorite artist. Fan armies, it's time to get in formation. Who reps their favorite young pop star the hardest?
In the first round—the Sheerios, Rihanna Navy, XO Crew, EXO-Ls, Selenators, Mendes Army, Harmonizers, and Vampettes were all eliminated. BTS ARMY, Swifties, Arianators, and Zquad were cut in the second round, but all fallen armies were gifted with their own honorific titles for their dedication.
Little Mix defied all the odds as a girl group. Most girl groups don't even make it to four commercially-successful albums and are torn apart by drama before they can even be a blip on the radar. But Little Mix proved they are the epitome of girl power, and that's why Mixers stay dedicated to the girl group's message of unity.
Justin has been through some hard times, but with the support of the Beliebers, he has persevered and made a huge comeback with "Purpose" in 2015. He garnered the top song of 2016 with "Love Yourself" and was named Billboard's top male artist. Justin has also scored two back-to-back #1 hits with "I'm the One" and "Despacito" this past summer.
Justin is more focused than ever, and Beliebers are proud and ready.
