Jessie J has won four MOBO awards.

The ‘Price Tag’ hitmaker led the winners at last night’s ceremony, picking up all but one of the prizes she was nominated for, taking home Best UK Act, Best Newcomer, Best Song for ‘Do It Like A Dude’ and Best Album for ‘Who You Are’.

However, she missed out on Best Video, which was won by Tinchy Stryder and Dappy for ‘Spaceship’.

Other winners at the ceremony included Tinie Tempah, who was recognised as Best Hip Hop/ Grime Artist, Rihanna, who was honoured with Best International Act and ‘Someone Like You’ hitmaker Adele, who won Best R’n’B/Soul Act. US group Boyz II Men were handed the Outstanding Contribution to Music award.

Meanwhile, Dionne Bromfield headed up a tribute to her late godmother Amy Winehouse – who died in July at the age of 27 – performing a rendition of the star’s hit ‘Love is a Losing Game’.

Speaking ahead of the ceremony, 15-year-old Dionne said: "It's amazing. It's really emotional but I'm really pleased to be doing it.

"Amy loved the MOBOs, it was one of her favourite awards."

This year’s MOBO awards – which honour music of Black origin – were hosted by Alesha Dixon and Jason Derulo and took place at the SECC Arena in Glasgow, Scotland.
