The battle is not yet over... at least between the Directioners and the Smilers! Vevo has recently announced that Miley Cyrus' video "Wrecking Ball" still holds the title for most views even when One Direction's "Story of My Life" had 12.3 million views in just 13 hours!

Many One Direction fans thought that victory was already theirs but VEVO burst their bubble when it announced that the former "Hannah Montana" star still holds the record. The five-some group was in high hopes in reclaiming the throne which Miley's controversial video took from them after its unbelievable 19.3 million views within 24 hours since its September 2013 premier, according to Entertainmentwise.

1D fans were in total outraged and took all their sentiments over social media. Some of them launched a Twitter feud against Miley's "Smilers."

Ignoring the bitter words of the former "The Voice" alumni, Miley instead thanked her supporters through her tweets with #WreckedTheRecord at the end. "Wrecking Ball" has officially beaten the @VEVO record" and "DONT STOP WATCHING WRECKING BALL WE HAVE 9 Hours More we can get the Views Higher!"

While many "Smilers" are celebrating over their victory, the "Directioners" are demanding a recount! They are standing up for Liam, Niall, Louis, Zayn, and Harry claiming that the video sharing site did not properly count the views.

The fans are even claiming that the actual views should be 21.7 million instead of 12.5M. They also accuse VEVO of a foul play, according to Sugar Scape.

Meanwhile, prior to this VEVO record issue the "Adore You" singer has postponed her "Bangerz" tour and was admitted in Kansas City hospital because of severe allergic reaction to a medication, her rep said to E! Online.

But good news is she is already out of the hospital. Her fans can be happy now that she has already been discharged and her concert tour will push through according to

As for the young lads, they are now in London busy for the first stop of their "Where We Are" concert in Sunderland this May. Directioners can also watch out for their third album which will be released on November.
