Emeli Sande stormed tonight's Mobo Awards, scooping three separate titles.

The 25-year-old singer-songwriter won Best Female, Best Album for her number one-selling Our Version of Events and Best R&B/Soul at the event at Liverpool's Echo Arena.

Emeli, who first featured at the Mobo Awards in 2010, got the night off to a memorable start with a specially-created version of My Kind of Love.

Guest of honour Dionne Warwick was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award to celebrate half a century in the business.

TLC's Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas collected this year's Mobo Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music.

Members of the Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopes's family jetted in especially to celebrate the honour on her behalf. The singer died in a car accident 10 years ago.

Rita Ora jetted in especially from the US leg of her tour to pick up Best Newcomer in association with HTC.

Labrinth, who was a major hit with fans lining the red carpet, was awarded Best Song in association with PRS for Music for Earthquake and treated the room to a mash up of his biggest hits.

He has spent the past year storming the charts with his own take on urban pop.

Chart toppers JLS arrived on a specially-chartered easyJet flight to collect the gong for Best Video for Do You Feel What I Feel and got the crowd on their feet with a performance of their newest single, Hottest Girl in the World.

Misha B presented Rachel Kerr with Best Gospel and D'Banj was awarded Best African Act.

Best Jazz went to Zoe Rahman, who collected the accolade from Delilah and previous double Mobo Award winner, YolanDa Brown.

And Nicki Minaj beat off stiff competition for Best International Act. Sean Paul was awarded Best Reggae.

The event - now in its 17th year - included performances from special guests including rapper Wiley, who shared the stage with Skepta and Ms D to perform his new release Can You Hear Me and number one single, Heatwave.

Rising star Misha B treated crowds to a version of her debut single Home Run, and Angel wowed the crowd with his single, Wonderful.

Mobo founder Kanya King MBE said this year's event had been particularly special.

Each year we're staggered by the calibre of the talent on display at the Mobo Awards.

This year has been outstanding and we're honoured to showcase the best of the best on the night.

Tonight has been a night for not only homegrown talent such as Emeli Sande and Plan B, who we've championed from the beginning of their careers, but also less represented genres of music such as gospel, jazz and African which are equally important for Mobo.
