  Mobos search for a star
Updated 11 June 2003, 17.50

Move over Simon Fuller, the latest talent search is looking for urban, not pop.

Hundreds of hopefuls have turned up to Mobo Unsung auditions hoping to be the next Ms Dynamite.

As the name suggests, the competition's organised by the people behind the Mobos.

At stake is a recording contract and a chance to sing at the Mobo awards in September.

Pop Idol style audtions

Top tips

Judge Severine Berman said: "we're looking for vocal ability; they need to be confident and have star quality".

Big Brovaz's Cherise Roberts, who won the competition in 2000, said: "winning Mobo Unsung changed my life. My advice to anyone thinking about entering this year is GO FOR IT!"

Still got time

There are three open auditions left:

  • Glasgow - 14 June - 11 am
  • Manchester - 16th June - 11 am
  • Southampton - 19th June - 11 am

The winner will be announced on 25 June.
