THE 2015 MOBO NOMINATIONS ARE HERE

JME & Krept & Konan dominate with four nominations each. 

Grime is experiencing a bit of a renaissance at the minute, so it seems apt that grime acts have dominated this year's just-released MOBO nominations. 

Grime artist JME scooped up several nominations, picking up a grand total of four, alongside fast-rising hip-hop duo, Krept And Konan. They'll face off against each other in the best male, album and song categories, while JME is also up for the best grime artist gong. 

Lianne La Havas, Skepta and Stormzy each have three nominations, while FKA twigs, Little Simz, Bugzy Malone, Lethal Bizzle and Mark Ronson have two.

The 2015 Mobo Awards will be held at First Direct Arena, Leeds, on 4th November, and will be broadcast live on ITV2. Fans can vote for their favourite acts from 9am on 1st October. 

This year marks the 20th year for the historic event, which recognises artists of any ethnicity or nationality performing black music.
