Selena Gomez and her sidekicks from their new movie “Spring Breakers” look hot in a new promo photo. But they’ve got competition from Hayden Panettiere and her crew from the new television musical drama “Nashville.”

Gomez, who stars in “Spring Breakers with Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Bensen and Rachel Corine, is back in a bikini for a photo of the girls released in advance of the 69th Venice International Film Festival.

The Harmony Cornine-directed movie will premiere in competition for the Golden Lion at the festival, and it’s sure to raise eyebrows, according to promo trailers and photos. It’s also Selena’s raciest movie yet.

But the 19-year-old former Disney queen isn’t the only actress having a coming out party. Panettiere, 23, will debut in her first lead television role as teen country singing sensation Juliette Barnes. She stars opposite Connie Britton as the aging superstar, Rayna James.

The show is a cross between NBC’s hit “Smash,” about the making of a Broadway musical, and Gwyneth Paltrow’s “Country Strong,” about an over-the-hill country star competing with an up-and-comer.

Panettiere posed for a promo for the series surrounded by a gaggle of Nashville babes in crop tops and Daisy Duke denim shorts. Gomez and her gang were in sexy bikinis.

“Nashville” will debut on ABC, Wednesday, Oct. 10. “Spring Breakers” is expected in theaters next year.
