Tulisa receives a Best UK Female nomination – REALLY??? How is that possible???

Ed Sheeran – *confused face*

Maverick Sabre receives Best R&B/Soul nomination – I’m surprised they didn’t throw in a Best Reggae nomination too.

The individuals who sit on the MOBO committee and put together the nomination lists each year are a bunch of  jokers.

I’m done.

  1. Where is it being held this time? Liverpool again? Ah, lost interest in this some time back. Tulisa?? Jessie J? It’s a big joke! People Stateside must be laughing at us!

  2. Truth be told, the MOBO’s are only interesting for the banter on Twitter. It’s lost its place as a serious platform for real music of black origin.
