The Streets star MIKE SKINNER wowed a London nightclub last Friday (22OCT04) night, when he engaged in an onstage MC battle.

The DRY YOUR EYES singer joined fellow British stars The Mitchell Brothers and Kano in the rap battle at the capital's trendy FABRIC establishment.

But Skinner failed to emerge the winner at the end of the night.

An onlooker says, "Come 3am all the MCs were up on stage, including some members of Roll Deep and KLASHNEKOFF. They all kicked of a freestyle battle after the crowd egged them on.

"No two ways about it - Mike's mate Kano beat everyone."
