Rapper Plan B also had a triumphant night at the 17th annual awards, which this year was held in Liverpool's Echo Arena, by winning in the Best Male and Best Hip-Hop/Grime categories.

Elsewhere, Rita Ora picked up the Best Newcomer prize, boyband JLS scooped Best Video for their promo for 'Do You Feel What I Feel?', and Labrinth won Best Song for 'Earthquake', his collaboration with Tinie Tempah.
