Is there any autumn tradition more American than a high school homecoming? The returning alumni, the big game against the school rival, the dance and, of course, the homecoming court.
If you're unfamiliar with the concept, it goes like this: A high school student body nominates and then votes on a group of fellow students to be the king and queen of the homecoming, with the runners-up crowned as prince and princess (although sometimes, the elections are separated between upper and underclassmen). It's a high school community's celebration of itself by holding up those it sees as the embodiment of its very best (who are unveiled at the homecoming dance, natch).
Forget the prom king and queen, the homecoming court is where it's at!
And while we at Enstars may not be in high school anymore, we love the idea of having a homecoming court for our favorite young celebs. But why not mix it up and have the candidates (or more accurately, their fans) square off against one-on-one? So we decided to host our very first Enstars Readers' Choice Homecoming Court Tournament.
The first round was full of intensity for the female celebrities vying for the titles of queen and princess, resulting in a bunch of our favorite girls getting cut, but 16 have advanced out of the original 32 vying for the titles.
Here we have 8 of 16 still vying for the titles of queen and princess in our Homecoming Court 2015 Tournament with their respective polls. At the end of each round we'll share the results and continue with the next round until we have our Enstars Readers' Choice Homecoming Court 2015 decided.
Voting closes at 5 p.m. EDT on November 5th.
Female Contenders For Queen & Princess
1. Sabrina Carpenter vs. Gina Rodriguez
Carpenter has earned mega amounts of fame for her sassy and rebellious role on Girl Meets World, but the actress remains totally grounded. Getting crowned queen or princess wouldn't go to her head.

Rodriguez is a delightful actress with a huge, warm heart. We can totally see her reigning in our Enstars Homecoming Court 2015 because her personality is so enchanting.

2. Becky G vs. Perrie Edwards
Becky G is one fierce performer, always giving her all so we know if she were to reign, she'd do the job justice.

Little Mix's Edwards is all about female empowerment. Plus, her style is totally cute and we think she'd look awesome in a crown!

3. Hailee Steinfeld vs. Cara Delevingne
Steinfeld is a terrific actress and singer, proving she has multiple talents. Does that mean she could reign as queen or princess? We think so!

Delevingne is multitalented too. She has quite the knack for modeling, acting and she even sings too. We might as well just give her a crown since she's so awesome!

4. Chloe Lukasiak vs. Normani Kordei Hamilton
Lukasiak is another super talented dancer like Ziegler. She never lets any harsh criticism get her down, which is truly inspiring. We'd love to see her reign. How about you?

Hamilton may not be a professional dancer, but this 5H member can certainly bust some sassy moves that go with her girl group's fierce songs. Should she reign? Let us know!
