Singer Kelly Rowland “Livid” After UK Awards Show

As BBC NEWS is reporting, “Singer Kelly Rowland said she deserved an apology from MOBO awards organizers after claiming her performance was affected by poor sound quality.” DJ David Guetta accompanied Rowland on their hit, “When Love Takes Over,” at last night’s ceremony, which celebrated “urban” music in the UK. As you can watch below, Rowland’s mic cut off just as she began singing. Later, Rowland tweeted, “What I will say is the Mobos owe me an apology! I was LIVID after the show!”

Maybe the sound person was a disgruntled former Destiny’s Child member???

While not British himself—he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri—he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
