JLS have walked away with two gongs from the BT Digital Music Awards after earning the loudest screams from fans as they arrived on the red carpet.
The boy band - soon to be battling it out in the charts with veterans Take That - admitted they rely on digital technology to keep in touch with their fans, who were very vocal outside the Roundhouse venue in Camden, north London, as the former X Factor stars arrived.
Band member Oritse Williams said: "We're always tweeting, just a while a go we tweeted we were getting ready to come here and now they're all here to support us."
JLS won best video for Everybody In Love and also beat The Saturdays to the best group prize.
Marvin dates Rochelle from the girl group, but his bandmates insisted there was no rivalry between the groups, only "friendly banter".
Tinie Tempah, 21, who is set to get his third No 1 on Sunday - beat Professor Green, 26, to best newcomer - but Professor Green took home breakthrough artist instead.
X Factor judge Cheryl Cole, who was unable to attend the awards, won best female and best song for Fight For This Love. Other absent winners included Lady Gaga and Robbie Williams.
There were performances throughout the evening from Tine Tempah, Professor Green, Scouting For Girls, Roll Deep, Ne-Yo, McFly and Marina And The Diamonds.
