Miley Cyrus has been declared the winner...in the Celebrity Bowling Hall of Fame tournament, which does not require her to bowl strikes and spares. That's a high honor for the teen. She is truly accomplished now.
In a dramatic come-from-behind victory, Miley Cyrus has secured her induction into the Celebrity Bowling Hall of Fame. Thanks to overwhelming support from her fans, Cyrus secured 42 percent of votes cast during the month-long race to be voted into the Celebrity Wing of the International Bowling Museum and Hall of Fame. For the second consecutive year, fans were empowered to vote for their favorite celebrity nominee at GoBowling.com. Justin Bieber, who was defeated by 2010 inductee Taylor Swift in the final hours of the last year's competition, once again fell short of obtaining bowling immortality despite once again jumping to an early lead in the 2011 competition.
"We knew that with mega stars such as Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber in our line-up that this year's race would be a close one," said Steve Johnson, executive director of the Bowling Proprietors' Association of America in a statement. "Fueled by the passion and support of her supporters and bowling fans worldwide, Ms. Cyrus rose to the occasion scoring an incredible comeback victory. We are honored to welcome her into the Hall of Fame and grateful for her support of the great sport of bowling."
Added Johnson, "From pop musicians and Hollywood stars to professional athletes and hip hop artists, this year's class of inductees represent the surging popularity, diverse appeal and inclusive experience that is bowling today."
Voting for 2011 Celebrity Hall of Fame induction took place on GoBowling.com between July 12 and Aug. 6, 2011. Cyrus and Bieber were among ten nominees that were selected for their public support of bowling over the past year.
