The 20th Mobo awards drew a plethora of stars to Leeds for the annual celebration of music of black origin. Naughty Boy Music, Rita Ora, Cee Lo Green, Ella Eyre, Lethal Bizzle and Lianne La Havas were among the star performers on the night but it was FKA twigs that got everyone talking with a raunchy, high energy performance.
Accompanied to the event by boyfriend Robert Pattinson, the 27-year-old took to the stage in a daring lace-up top and leather flared trousers for an edgy rendition of her track Two Weeks. She walked away with the award for best video for her self-directed Pendulum, beating Rita Ora's Body On Me.
But Ella Eyre trounced them both to win the award for best female for the second year running. Wearing a thigh high split, black, panelled dress, the singer expressed her shock at the award saying: "I really didn't expect to get this again and for the second time I didn't prepare a speech."
Krept & Konan lead the nominations receiving four nods in categories including best album for The Long Way Home, best male, best hip hop and best song. They picked up best hip-hop act while Stormzy won best grime act.
And Krept & Konan weren't the only artists from the worlds of grime and hip hop to be recognized, as the genre dominated the nominations with 27 nods in categories including best song, best male act, best video and newcomer.
Cee Lo Green, best known for his work with Gnarls Barkley and the hit single Forget You, received an outstanding achievement award. The 41-year-old said: "I am honoured by this acknowledgement, especially so young in my career. And it is all the incentive anyone would need to continue doing what I love."
Sir Lenny Henry too was acknowledged for his role as a pioneer for black and ethnic minorities in the arts and for his achievements as a founder of Comic Relief. Collecting his Paving The Way prize, in an epic speech he thanked by name every person who had ever influenced or inspired him in his career including "that bloke from the Halifax adverts".
He added next year he hopes "someone will be standing on my shoulders, as long as it's not CeeLo bloody Green".
The star-studded event saw a host of celebrity guests and presenters lend their support including actor Idris Elba, who presented the best album award. However the movie star revealed he had been told to cut down his speech as the show overran.
Corinne Bailey Rae, Fatman Scoop, Vanessa White, Lethal Bizzle, The Great British Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain and Emmerdale stars Laura Norton, Isobel Hodgkins and Amy Walsh also attended the lavish music awards.
