JLS and N-Dubz win two Mobo awards


X Factor runners up JLS and N-Dubz were the big winners at the Mobo awards.

N-Dubz picked up two awards for best album and best UK act. JLS were the winners in the best song and best newcomer category.

The Music of Black Origin (Mobo) Awards were held in Glasgow - it's the first time the ceremony has been outside of London.

There was a special tribute to Michael Jackson with performances from Diversity and Shaheen Jafargholi.

Jermaine Jackson also sang in memory of his brother. Michael was honoured with a lifetime achievement award which was accepted by Jermaine and his sister La Toya on behalf of the whole Jackson family.

Chipmunk win

The show was co-hosted by Radio 1's Reggie Yates and American singer Keri Hilson, who also won best R&B/soul act.

Beyonce, who wasn't at the show, picked up two Mobos for best international act and best video.

Rapper Chipmunk beat off tough competition to win best hip hop act.

But there was no success for Dizzee Rascal or Tinchy Strider, despite each being nominated for three awards.

The winners of all the awards are decided by public vote.
