More Gongs for Amy

With two awards ceremonies taking place last night it seems that drug-addled songstress Amy Winehouse was the big winner, picking up three awards. It must make Pete Doherty, with all his troubles, wonder what he's got to do to be more than just tabloid fodder.

Here are the results of the Music of Black Origin and the Vodafone Live Music awards:

Best UK male: Dizzee Rascal
Best UK female: Amy Winehouse
Best song: Ne-Yo - Because of You
Best video: Kanye West - Stronger
Best international act: Rihanna
Best UK newcomer: N Dubz
Best hip-hop act: Kanye West
Best reggae act: Sean Kingston
Best R&B act: Ne-Yo
Best gospel act: G-Force
Best jazz act: Soweto Kinch
Best DJ: Tim Westwood
Best African act: 2face Idibia (Nigeria)

Vodafone Live Music:
Vodafone Live Act: Arctic Monkeys
International Live Act: The Killers
Best Live Female: Amy Winehouse

I've got to say I'd rather go and see anybody (bar Mika!) than anyone on the MOBO list, but that's just a matter of taste.
