Amy WinehouseAmy Winehouse and Dizzee Rascal lead the nominations for this year's Mobo Awards. The nominations for the 12th Music Of Black Origin (Mobo) was announced on Wednesday in London.

The "Rehab" hitmaker is up for Best UK Female, alongside Beverley Knight, Corinne Bailey Rae, Jamelia and Joss Stone. The news will come as a welcome relief for Winehouse - who was also nominated for Best R&B Act, Best Song for "Rehab" and Best Video for "Back To Black" - following her recent collapse after three days of hard partying.

Rap star Rascal also picked up four nominations - Best UK Male, Best Hip-hop Act, Best Song and Best Video for Sirens

Elsewhere, rappers 50 Cent and Kanye West will fight it out for the Best Hip Hop Act prize, while former Sugababes star Mutya Buena was nominated in the Best Newcomer category.

The 12th annual Mobo Awards take place at London's 02 Arena on September 12 and will be co-hosted by singer Jamelia and reggae artist Shaggy.
