So Something Went Really, Really Wrong At The MOBO Awards

There was a huge error made during one of the winners' announcements...

We’re huge fans of the MOBO Awards, and with a line-up bursting with talent, we couldn’t wait to see who was going to be scooping the prizes.

But, unfortunately, something pretty awkward happened during the show this year.

If you’re thinking about the worst things that could possibly go wrong at an Awards show, handing out a prize to the wrong winner would probably rate pretty highly, no?

Well, unfortunately, that’s precisely what happened.

MOBO Awards, Glasgow, Scotland, UK - 04 Nov 2016

WSTRN were mistakenly announced as the winners of Best Song, even taking to the stage in Glasgow to make an acceptance speech.

It was then later revealed that the prize should have gone to Abra Cadabra, for Robbery featuring Krept and Konan.

According to BBC News, the MOBO organisers said in a statement: ‘Of the many worthy winners of best song, we deeply regret a mistake was made.’

The blunder was also reportedly blamed on a ‘production error.’

Of course, it did not take long for social media to pick up on the gaffe, with viewers sharing their thoughts – and criticism – on Twitter.

One fan wrote: ‘Proper cringing watching the MOBO awards at wstrn now knowing they were given the wrong award after that deep speech they made 😩😩’.

Another shared a meme, along with the words: ‘I cant believe the guy thank the world for the award and then they said sorry wrong guy, 20mins later 😂 #mobo2016 #MOBO’ [sic].

Oh dear.

Craig David took the prize for Best Male, whilst Drake was named Best International Act.

MC Lady Leshurr took home Best Female Act, and Kano was crowned with Best Album for Made In The Manor.
