2009 MOBO Awards - Worth The Hype?


You know, after watching the MOBO's live last night, for two-hours straight with no commercial breaks, I thought it would only be right to add my thoughts on what had happened that evening. And even though some people may think differently but I think the MOBO's is a waste of money, time, space and hype.. And Yeh...I said it.

The British award show thats all about 'Music Of Black Origin', had firstly arranged artists into wrong catergories (Thats why Chipmunk won a MOBO over Drake and Lil Wayne), How could they not separate US artists into another category like the Americans do, its just common sense, this would have allowed people like Tinchy Stryder, Bashy, and Dizzee Rascal who have been rising at phenominal rates to gain some recognision for their outstanding work and in the music scene. I'm not saying certain Artists should not have won them, but the whole event had flaws, some being as small as unecessary dancers giving the awards and big things like ex Destiny Child member 'Kelly Rowland' not being able to sing 'When Love Takes Over' properly.

Things like that were, putting me of throught the show, but I can't just blame them for everything, they did do somethings right, such as getting Chart topper Keri Hilson to host the awards and getting ChipBoldmunk a hard performance with North London dancers Flawless! In addition to giving a Michael Jackson tribute and giving charity War Child some recognition it wernet all that bad, but honestly speaking, it could have gone alot more better.
But at times it even got to a point that the Artists them selves were making the awards show worst, Dappy from N-dubz got a bit to cocky, just screaming his ends and just strutting around in a award ceremony, also Peter Andre trying to gain fame along with Latoya Jackson and Jermain Jackson trying to tell the world that the Jacksons are still in business $$$. And even having the biggest Funky House names, that are already getting mad recognition such as Egypt, Donaeo & Gracious K doing small skits of their hits, which should have been up there on the performance stage kmt..

If they where up there instead of Diversity or N-dubz that show would have got more love. Still I do rate the winners still, it is an achievment and the performances from Chipmunk with Flawless and Emeli Sande, Tinchy Stryder with lazor lights and Keri Hilston singing 'Knock You Down' with a sick Tiao Cruz twist, the show had still made some some impressive performances. But will I be watching Next Year? Probably not, but if more serious artists that win awards such as Beyonce or Sean Paul turn up then.. Maybe.

That was a good read and I agree with everything you said. The categories are really random and unfair. I still can't believe Dizzee n Tynchy walked away empty handed, that wasn't rite. On a level tho MOBO's needs to redefine itself next year if it wants an audience. Ppl are losing faith (a lot have already lost faith). Dappy from N dubz gives me jokes tho!

Its good to see that everyone agreed but ITs not good that the MOBO's turned out like they did, thinking of contacting the MOBO's but, Im thinking of what to say?...

Thanks for the support people!
