MOBO nominations

By | Published on Thursday 1 September 2011


So, the noms are out for this year’s MOBO Awards, and look, here they are, in a list and everything. I like Rizzle Kicks. Have I ever mentioned that? They played The Great Escape launch party in May and were FAB, as the kids are all saying, I’m sure. Yeah, I’m down with the trumpets. The Kicks are up for three prizes and they should win them all, official. Adele has more noms, but frankly I’m bored of Adele. And be fair, surely Adele’s getting a bit bored of Adele by now. Anyway, noms…

The 2011 MOBOs take place on 5 Oct in Glasgow. That’s in Scotland. I was there recently. Scotland, not Glasgow. Though I did see a road sign to Glasgow. It didn’t mention the MOBOs though.
