'Honoured' Jessie J leads Mobo nominations

Thursday September 1, 2011

Jessie J leads the field at this year's Mobo Awards – and said her five nominations were "amazing".

The Price Tag singer was just ahead of Wretch 32, Adele and Tinie Tempah who were each shortlisted for four awards.

The ceremony takes place at Glasgow's SECC on October 5, with US star Jason Derulo among the hosts.

Jessie J is up for best newcomer, best UK act, best album, best video and best song.

"I am so honoured to be nominated. I have watched so many of the artists I look up to being nominated, winning awards and performing – its amazing to be in the company of such amazing talent," she said.
