  1. I DECIDED TO STAY HOME AND WRITE SOME MUSIC!!! INSTEAD!!
    I FELT LIKE A HIPOCRITE IF I HAD ACCEPTED THAT INVITATION….
    THO I WILL BE GOING NEXT YEAR!!!

  2. Yuck!! Flo Rida is performing?! What in the HELL!!! He barely performs in the States with his lame ass!

  3. I will most defo be watching, so we can blog it to death lol !!!

    Not really, I champion anyone to walk in Kanya’s shoes. The woman gets
    criticised to death and she still soldiers on year after year. Bless her.

    Flo Rida ? – I’m late… lol

  4. Kanya King looked a mess. She has or use to have really nice flowing hair, now she wears a long weave. No Kanya, you need to fix up. As for Mary Wells, her make up was a disgrace.

  5. The artists that won the awards deserve it. That’s for sure. But in terms of star appeal, no the MOBO’s was lack lusture, boring and very dry. So many people walked out well before the event was over.

    It was shameful Worse still the view for the £59 tickets was not much better that the £20 tickets. On reflection there were too many not well known get awards. I would also argue that presenters got better props that the winners.

    As an aside, Noel Clarke the new Spike Lee! Please. At least Spike Lee has dealt with some serious issues. Noel appears to focus on the same UK street crap.
