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.

US rapper/singer Nicki Minaj was named Best International Act, while Sean Paul won the Best Reggae prize and Zoe Rahman came away with the Best Jazz award.

Other winners included, Dionne Warwick, who was awarded the MOBO Lifetime Achievement gong and the surviving members of TLC, who travelled from the US to the event to receive the MOBO Outstanding Achievement award.
