MOBO Awards nominations announced

The nominations for this year's MOBO Awards have been announced, and we have the list right here. It's extremely exciting looking at lists, isn't it?

What, you want someone to analyse the noms for you? You lazy bleeders. OK then: Jessie J has received the most nominations this year, and is up for five gongs - Best Song' for 'Do It Like a Dude', 'Best Album', 'Best Newcomer', 'Best Video' and 'Best UK Act' – while predictably Adele has also been a load of awards, including 'Best Album' and 'Best UK Act'. Cool as rapper Tinie Tempah and Wretch 32 have also been put up for four of the lovely trinkets.

'I am so honoured to be nominated,' said Jessie J. 'I have watched so many of the artists I look up to being nominated, winning awards and performing. It's amazing to be in the company of such amazing talent.'
