Selena Gomez attends the "Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons: Art Of The In-Between" Costume Institute Gala at Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 1, 2017 in New York City.

Badoo now allows users to search by similar celebrity and photo matches.

Plenty of people out there would love to date Selena Gomez, Zayn Malik or Drake and while dating app Badoo can't deliver the real thing, it is making an effort to deliver the next best thing.

The Bumble partner website has recently launched a lookalike feature that will sort its 350 million users across the world to find those who resemble a favorite celebrity, friend or anyone else you happen to have a photo of.

The results are, well, mixed to say the least. But while everyone may not look just (or, in some cases, much) like the celebrity he or she is matched to, it does at least organize one's search by a type of physical characteristics. For instance, if one were to search for Ed Sheeran lookalikes, 717 white men show up and most of them have red hair, sensitive eyes and heartwarming smiles. Not bad (if that's your type).

With Badoo, we compiled a list of some of music's biggest names and their ready-to-date lookalikes. Check them out:

DJ Khaled 774 lookalikes
Kendrick Lamar 771 lookalikes
Ed Sheeran 717 lookalikes
Drake 698 lookalikes
Selena Gomez 1,366 lookalikes
Post Malone 779 lookalikes
Lorde 1,427 lookalikes
Halsey 721 lookalikes
Chris Stapleton 760 lookalikes
Harry Styles 400 lookalikes
