laura mvula mercury prize 2013 Laura Mvula and Rudimental were some of the many artists that were nominated for a Mercury Prize this year.

Unfortunately they lost out to James Blake, despite Mvula being the bookies favourite to win the annual award.

Rudimental were up for nomination with their album Home. Which we honestly think should have won.

During his acceptance speech, James Blake said he would spend the £20,000 prize money on a crazy golf course for the front of his garden. Which is probably better than Mvula spending the cash on outfits like the one above.

I mean it’s just black cloth really isn’t it.
