Jessie J looks set to dominate this year’s MOBO Awards after picking up five nods.

The London singer is shortlisted for Best Song, Best Album, Best Newcomer, Best Video and Best UK Act.

She said: "I am so honoured to be nominated. I have watched so many of the artists I look up to being nominated, winning awards and performing.

"It's amazing to be in the company of such amazing talent."

Adele, Tinie Tempah and Wretch 32 have all received four nominations each, in a year dominated by young British talent.

Chase & Status and Rizzle Kicks are also nominated.

Kanya King, CEO and Founder of MOBO, said: “We are very pleased with the level of this year’s nominees, including many emerging artists, some who have come from backgrounds where they haven’t been given a foot in the door, so-to-speak.

“These artists have shown real determination to make it happen.”

The MOBO Awards will be held at the SECC in Glasgow on October 5.
