LONDON (AP) -- Jessie J may have worked as the house artist at this week's MTV Video Music Awards, but at the upcoming MOBO Awards she is the lead nominee.

The singer is up for five awards at the urban music award show, including best U.K. act and best newcomer. Her No. 1 hit, "Do It Like a Dude," is nominated for best song and best video, while her debut album, "Who You Are," is up for best album.

British songbird Adele will battle Jessie J for the best U.K. act, album and song categories. Adele is also up for best U.K. R&B/soul act.

English rappers Wretch 32 and Tinie Tempah also received four nominations. Among the best international act nominees are Beyonce, Nicki Minaj and Bruno Mars.

The awards ceremony takes place Oct. 5 in Glasgow, Scotland. Winners will be picked based on fan voting.
