Sam Smith continued his breakthrough year at the 2014 MOBO Awards. The British sensation picked up four awards including Best R&B/Soul Act, Best Male Act, and Best Song for “Stay With Me” at the 19th annual ceremony at London’s SSE Arena Wembley on Wednesday.

Eve presented the Best Album to Smith for his critically-acclaimed debut In the Lonely Hour. “I just want to thank ever single person who wrote on my record with me and was my personal therapist for a good year,” said Smith, who dedicated the award to his parents.

Nicole Scherzinger served up her single “On the Rocks” off her album Big Fat Lie, which was released in the U.K. earlier in the week. Jessie J was joined by special guest Kid Ink on “Burnin’ Up,” and Jeremih had the crowd moving along to his top 10 hit “Don’t Tell ‘Em.”

Video: Gwen Stefani – ‘Baby Don’t Lie’

Gwen Stefani

A day after dropping her comeback record “Baby Don’t Lie,” her first solo track since 2006, Gwen Stefani steps into a trippy world in the colorful and grainy video, directed by Sophie Muller, who’s helmed many of Gwen and No Doubt’s videos.

The blonde bombshell shows off her effortless style as she walks alongside some animated creatures and dances in the streets with her girls, while rocking her pink Beats and Pumas.

The song, produced by Benny Blanco, Ryan Tedder, and Noel Zancanella, is not entirely autobiographical. “You know, parts of it are and parts of it are pulling from the past,” said Gwen, who is married to Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale.

In between tapings for “The Voice,” she hopes to release her third solo album in December and has collaborated with “Hollaback Girl” hitmaker Pharrell on a song called “Spark the Fire.” If that wasn’t enough, the mother of three is simultaneously working on a new No Doubt album.
