One of the best part was probably the Michael Jackson tribute. The King of Pop was honored with a MOBO Lifetime Achievement Award, which was accepted by La Toya and Jermaine Jackson in person.

And once again Britain’s Got Talent singer Shaheen Jafargoli sang I’ll Be There, while dance group Diversity performed a stunning sequence set to a medley of Michael Jackson hits.

Taking the MOBOs to Glasgow has probably been the best decision Kanya King could have made. And it seems it won’t be the last time Glasgow will host such a major event. The show was sold out! Kanya King, congatulations to you and your team for making this event so successful!

 

That’s all folks!
