PopCrush's 2018 Fan Showdown is a month-long competition to determine the most dedicated fan base. Solo artists, groups, and ex-group members will all face off until a winner is crowned on May 1.

Leaving a popular group to go it solo can be a risky endeavor. On one hand, you have a chance at full artistic freedom and the prospect of full-fledged, singular stardom. On the other, you could lose everything: momentum, fans, and any connection with the band that helped kickstart your career.

But there are some who can pull off the transition seamlessly, not only keeping their following intact, but growing it tenfold. So, of those who've parted ways with their onetime groups, whose fan base has stood behind them the strongest? Is it Zayn's Zqad? Camila Cabello's Camilizers? The newly born Dinahsty? We're putting it to the test.

Round 1 of the competition begins today (April 3) and ends on Tuesday, April 10 at noon; Round 2 begins April 11 at noon and ends on April 16 at noon; Round 3 begins April 17 at noon and ends April 22 at noon; the Final Four begins April 23 at noon and ends on April 25 at noon; and the winner of the final showdown will be revealed on May 1.
