Tonight saw the launch party for the Mobos, which having been a bit a puzzle for the last few years have finally decided they are, erm, "Europe's leading urban brand." They haven't bothered to stick out a full list of the nominations yet, but Corinne Bailey Rae has done quite well with three nods - despite some scientists claiming she doesn't actually exist; Beyonce has got four possible prizes (Best Song and Best Video for Deja Vu, Best R&B and Best International Female) and Lemar, Kano and Plan B will battle Sway and Nate James for Best British Male.

Which isn't really a celebration of anything much.

Hopefully the Mobo's nasty flash-heavy site will have the full list of names by morning. We really can't wait.
