Mobo: Music Stars Battle It Out For Awards
Music stars Jessie J, Rudimental and Rita Ora are in the running to win tonight at the 18th anniversary of the Mobo Awards.
The ceremony will feature performances by Naughty Boy, So Solid Crew and Tinie Tempah and will be hosted by BBC 1Xtra's Trevor Nelson and Sarah-Jane Crawford.
Jessie J, Jessie Ware, Laura Mvula and Rita Ora are all up for the Best Female title while Disclosure, Rudimental, Wiley, Wretch 32 and Naughty Boy will battle it out for the Best Male gong.
Laura Mvula shares the greatest number of nominations with Wiley and both will come head to head in the Best Album category.
Mvula has also been shortlisted for Best RnB/Soul act and Best Video while Wiley is also in the Best UK Hip Hop/Grime act and Best Song for Reloaded category.
AlunaGeorge will take to the stage with their song Attracting Flies, the track which has landed the electro pop duo on the Mobo short list for Best Video.
There will also be a "hotly anticipated" performance of the Cloud 9 collaboration between Ms Dynamite and Shy FX which will be accompanied by a sea of carnival dancers, organisers have said.
Kanya King, Mobo Awards founder and CEO, said: "We're thrilled at this year's diverse line-up and the additional two, exciting and unique performances.
"Mobo is all about diversity and this is the perfect mix of long-standing and new UK talent paving the way forward for UK music."
The event takes place in Scotland's newest and largest indoor entertainment venue The Hydro.
This is the third time the Mobo Awards have taken place in Glasgow and the first time at the £125m venue, which opened with a series of Rod Stewart gigs less than a month ago.
The arena has a capacity of 13,000 and will welcome around 140 events a year including sports fixtures during the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.
