The MOBO Awards will take place next Wednesday, and is packed with stars.
Kanya King (founder and CEO of the Awards) took the time to have an in-depth chat with us about the event.
Read the interview below to see her thoughts on Jessie J, Adele, urban music and how far the MOBO Awards have come over the last 16 years.

-How are preparations going for the show?
Oh my gosh, wow. It's crazy really. We've got so many people travelling to Glasgow, it's unbelievable. There seem to be hundreds and hundreds more people than there were in '09.
It feels like the city's getting ready for us. I've seen fantastic banners, things like that.
You might not have noticed this, but our Best Newcomer category is voted for via Facebook. We've got all of the ten nominees taking over Twitter. People are asking them if it's their first time going to Glasgow, who they'll be performing with. It's fantastic.

-Do you still get just as excited about it, after all these years?
Absolutely. We're always trying to do something different, and we take risks. You also want to exceed expectations. It's one of those things where yes, I'm still very much excited about it, but I never really let my hair down at the after show party!

-What prompted idea to move back to Glasgow this year?
You know what, I remember when we were there in '09 we had such a fantastic experience. It just felt really natural for us to want to return and build on the great relationship we have with the city.
I remember when I was on stage in '09, I just said "we'll be back!" I didn't know when at the time, but it's just unbelievable, a few years later.
There just seemed to be so much warmth to the artists on the show, and also the vibrancy about it. We just knew it wouldn't be long before the MOBO juggernaut would be hurtling back.
