British urban music’s beating heart is in London, yet in recent years the capital’s rappers and divas had to trek to Glasgow and Liverpool for the Mobo Awards. Last night the ceremony was back where it belongs for the first time in six years, but its pulling power among nominees was a little lacking. No FKA Twigs or Rita Ora, while Katy B preferred to play an in-store concert for Argos.
The 26-year-old Jessie J wowed on the red carpet in the daring bronze ensemble, which was slit completely to her navel. Jessie, who shaved her head last year for charity, wore a flowing black wig. The star wisely kept her accessories to a minimum in order to let her outfit take centre stage.
Meanwhile, just last week Jessie revealed she had turned down a lucrative offer to be a judge on The X Factor over bullying concerns. However, she appeared to forget her criticisms when she appeared on the show on Sunday night.
The Price Tag hitmaker took to the stage on the ITV juggernaut to promote her latest track Bang Bang during the elimination show.
