The Capital Weekender with Charlie Powell 1:30am - 5am
Following the ultimate battle of the fans in which the world's biggest pop star fan bases tried to prove why they're the best, Capital FM counts down the top ten fan bases in the world.
We asked you via Twitter and Facebook to tell us why your fan base is the best. We received THOUSANDS of supportive tweets and comments for your artists. So without further ado, here is our ultimate top ten countdown of the BEST fans in the world.
Aston, Oritse, Marvin and JB pose with a group their fans, who ensured JLS made it into the top ten fan groups by repeatedly tweeting @CapitalOfficial with '#JLStersOnCapital'. 'Everybody In Love' doesn't do it justice. Click next to see some of the amazing fan pictures sent in by the JLSters.
One JLSter tweeted @CapitalOfficial a picture of all the train tickets they've used to follow their favourite band around the world. That's dedication for you. #Proud
