MOBO Awards 2010 Baskstage Photos: Tinie Tempah, JLS And A Living God

by | 21st, October 2010

THE MOBO Awards 2010 backstage photos show Billy Ocean looking like he’s risen from the sea with a Trident in his hands. Tinie Tempah won an award that we except to see worn as a necklace – he’s best newcomer. Other acts that won and sat at round tables: JLS (surely up for a duet with X Factor deportee Gamu), Eminem (the biggest act could not but it is overwhelmed by the support of his British fans etc.), N-Dubz, Professor Green and Plan B.

MOBO founder Kanya King had a little gloat on stage:

“Now here we are 15 years later and urban music is the new pop music and I hate to say this, but we told you so.”

Isn’t urban music, now that’s popular, also pop music? (Red carpet photos here.)
