Tinie Tempah and JLS scooped two trophies each at the MOBO awards last night (20.10.10).

'Pass Out' hitmaker Tinie - a virtual unknown a year ago - was named Best Newcomer and took home Best Video for his song 'Frisky' featuring producer Labrinth at the awards which celebrate Music Of Black Origin.

JLS - who were named Best Newcomer last year - took home Best Album for their self-titled debut and Best UK Act at the event in Liverpool, Northern England.

Other groups attending the ceremony included N-Dubz, Professor Green, Mark Ronson, and US rapper Nelly.

N-Dubz singers Tulisa and Dappy - who, along with bandmate Fazer, picked up Best Song for their track 'Playing with Fire' - said they were glad to see Tinie finally getting the recognition he deserves.

Dappy exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "When he hooked up with Labrinth, Boom! it went off. Before that he was working and struggling for years. I thought at one point he was to disappear, but then he made 'Pass Out' and woooop!"

Tulisa added: "I've known Tinie for about six years now. His sound has changed up, he's had to package himself and find himself, find something unique - but as a person he's the same as I've always known. He seems a lot happier in himself though."

Nelly said he enjoyed checking out the new UK talent at the ceremony and performed his new single 'Just A Dream'.
