Emeli Sande was the name on everyone’s lips at the Mobos last night after bagging three awards.
The songbird won Best Female Act, Best Album and Best R&B/Soul Act. She also kicked off the show with a mind blowing performance of ‘My Kind Of Love’ from her debut album ‘Our Version of Events’, which is currently the UK’s best selling album of 2012.
Rapper turned-actor Plan B was the big winner in the Best Male Act and Best Hip Hop/Grime Act categories.
This year’s recognition for Outstanding Contribution to Music went to TLC’s T-Boz and Chilli, who flew in from the US and arrived at the event with new best friends Stooshe.
Dionne Warwick was presented with the Mobo Lifetime Achievement Award, whilst Rita Ora picked up Best Newcomer.
Holding her accolade, Rita said:”I’m absolutely thrilled. I’ve been involved with the Mobos since I was 15, it’s great to be back,” said Rita Ora.
Other winners also include JLS for Best Video for ‘Do You Feel What I Feel’, and Nicki Minaj for Best International Act.
