Los Angeles: Teen pop star Miley Cyrus has pipped Justin Bieber to become a Celebrity Bowling Hall of Fame inductee this year.

The 18-year-old singer-actress has followed in the footsteps of last year's inductee Taylor Swift by scoring a come-from-behind victory, denying the likes of Lady Gaga and Jeff Bridges the chance.

Collecting 42 percent of votes that was cast between July 12 and August 6 this year, the former 'Hannah Montana' star, beat out strong contender Bieber who trailed behind with 30 percent of votes, according to reports.

Steve Johnson, executive director of the Bowling Proprietors' Association of America, admitted to have predicted the battle between the two stars.

"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," he said.

Apart from Bieber, Cyrus also came out victorious over other nominees that are also comprised of Hollywood stars, professional athletes and Hip-Hop artists. Brothers Nick Jonas and Joe Jonas settled for third with 10 percent, 'Tron Legacy' star Jeff Bridges got fourth place with 5 percent and Lady Gaga rounded up top 5 with 3 percent.
