Jason Derulo nervous about hosting MOBOs

Jason Derulo is terrified ahead of his hosting slot at Britain's MOBO Awards on Wednesday (05Oct11), because he messed up the last time he presented at a prizegiving.

The Whatcha Say hitmaker is set to front the Music Of Black Origin (MOBO) Awards, which will take place in Glasgow, Scotland, alongside British pop star Alesha Dixon.

And Derulo admits his nerves are building ahead of the event after he failed to read a teleprompter correctly at another big awards ceremony.

He tells Britain's Daily Star, "I've never hosted anything, not even a birthday party, so it's going to be very different but I'm sure I'll rock it out.

"I had a bad experience with the teleprompter at an awards show in America. I was announcing a winner, and the teleprompter was a little too far for my eyes. So I said the lines of the girl I was on stage with. That was a bad experience but hopefully the words at the MOBOs will be a little bigger."
