austin-mahone-ariana-grande-MTV-EMA-rising-star.jpgThe 2013 MTV Europe Music Awards are coming up this weekend and one prize is still being hotly contested on the music channel’s voting site — Artist on the Rise.

Twitter-verse fans are rallying around Austin Mahone and Ariana Grande. The two each have over 4.6 million votes as of this writing, nearly quadruple that of third-place artist Cher Lloyd, and Cody Simpson, Bridgit Mendler and Lorde haven’t even cracked a million votes apiece.

Only about 2,000 votes separate Austin from catching Ariana — who will be in first place come Sunday night? Vote now using hashtags on Twitter, Instagram and Vine: #voteaustinmahone and #votearianagrande.

What we’re also wondering is whether Austin will show up to the awards with Camila Cabello of Fifth Harmony — the rumor is they are dating.

The 2013 EMAs air on MTV Sunday, Nov. 10 at 7 p.m. ET/PT.
