Tonight (22nd October), the MOBO Awards returned to London after a five-year absence, seeing some of the biggest names in specialist and emerging music both take to the stage, and/or win awards, for what cemented an impressive year for not only urban music, but also, proving that the UK is currently exporting some of the finest talent in years.

Presented by Sarah-Jane Crawford and Mel B, the MOBO Awards 2014 saw an impressive four awards being received by Sam Smith (Best Song, Best Male, Best Album, Best R&B/Soul), whilst the ‘Year of Grime’ was confirmed after both Skepta and JME, and Krept & Konan also won a gong each.
