Jessie J, Tinie Tempah and Tinchy Stryder all make appearances at this year's Mobo awards held in Glasgow.
Jessie J had tears in her eyes after winning four awards at this year's Mobos. The singer, who was born Jessica Cornish, won best UK act, newcomer, song for Do It Like A Dude and album for Who You Are.
After the show finished in Glasgow an emotional Jessie J said: "It's just overwhelming, I'm so honoured." The singer also opened the show, wearing a sparkling baseball hat, performing an energetic version of Do It Like A Dude.
Tinie Tempah won best hip hop/grime act at the event at Glasgow's SECC. He told the audience: "When I came here today I wasn't really expecting anything, so I'm very, very grateful for this award. Thank you so much."
The night also featured a tribute to Amy Winehouse, led by her god-daughter Dionne Bromfield, who sang Love Is A Losing Game. Amy Winehouse was found dead at her flat in north London on 23 July. She was 27.
JLS flew to Glasgow in a personal jet to present the outstanding contribution to music award to US group Boyz II Men. Adele picked up the best R&B/soul act Award with the best reggae award going to Alborosie.
Jessie J did miss out on the fifth category she was nominated in. The best video award went to Tinchy Stryder (above) and Dappy with their track Spaceship. Tinchy said: "I've been here like five times now, about time man."
Despite being nominated in three categories - best newcomer, UK hip hop/grime act and video - Rizzle Kicks failed to win a Mobo. Coronation Street actresses Brooke Vincent and Sasha Parkinson gave the best song award to Jessie J.
Professor Green performed at the Mobos. Founder Kanya King said: "The atmosphere of our second year here in Glasgow has shown the love that the whole country has for Mobo." Last year, the event was held in Liverpool.
Jason Derulo and Alesha Dixon co-hosted the ceremony. Derulo also performed at the event but missed out on best international act to Rihanna. She wasn't in Glasgow as she was performing at London's O2 Arena.
Stars on the red carpet included Labrinth, Jade Thompson and Katy B (all pictured) plus Myleene Klass, Alexis Jordan and Chipmunk. Glasgow will also host the awards in 2013 and for the 20th anniversary of the event in 2015.
