JLS and Tinie Tempah were the big winners at the 2010 Music of Black Origin (MOBO) awards on Wednesday.

JLS won best album and were named best UK act, as well as getting the loudest screams from fans during the star-studded do at Liverpool's Echo Arena.

Tinie Tempah, who released his first single just seven months ago, also had a great night, winning best newcomer and best video for his single Frisky.

N-Dubz and Plan B were among the other winners at the 15th Mobos ceremony.

Tinie Tempah is on a roll at the moment, having sold more singles than any other artist in the UK so far this year.

And he said he was thrilled by his MOBO success.

"Last year I was here as a spectator just watching my friends pick up awards," he told the audience. "So now it's nice to be here and to have finally won something."

The show was co-hosted by Radio 1's Reggie Yates and Strictly Come Dancing judge Alesha Dixon.

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