Beyonce wins big at the Mobos

Beyonce Knowles
It was all about Beyonce at this year's Mobo awards, as she took three awards, despite not even bothering to turn up!

She bagged best international female, as well as best song and best video for Deja Vu, which she performed with husband-to-be Jay-Z.

But there were boos from the crowd when her second award was announced and she wasn't there to get it.

Other winners were Black Eyed Peas for best group, Rihanna for best R&B and Lemar for best UK male.

Some people think the Mobos (Music of Black Origin) are becoming less important, and the fact that Beyonce didn't bother to turn up could be a sign of this.
