X Factor runners-up JLS and MC sensation Tinie Tempah have taken the 15th annual Mobo awards by storm.
Both acts landed two gongs in a star-studded ceremony held at Liverpool's waterfront Echo Arena.
The four-piece boyband won Best Album for their eponymous debut and the Best UK Act.
South Londoner Tinie Tempah, 21, was largely unheard of 12 months ago.
He was nominated for four awards and won Best Newcomer and Best Video for his single Frisky, which reached number two in the singles chart.
Both acts received raucous welcomes to Liverpool from hundreds of fans gathered alongside the red carpet.
The warm welcome was extended to current chart stars such as Roll Deep and N-Dubz to more established stars such as Michelle Williams from Destiny's Child and Michael Jackson's brother Jermaine.
Producer Mark Ronson kicked off the show with the Business International in a ceremony hosted by Strictly Come Dancing star Alesha Dixon and BBC Radio 1's Reggie Yates.
