The Brit Awards in History: 5 Scandalous Moments
The Brit Awards have recognised the cream of British pop music since they were first held in 1977, and have often been peppered with scandal and farce. Here are 5 chaotic but nonetheless iconic moments to remember:
The 1989 Brits are best remembered for the shambolic presenting skills of glamour model Samantha Fox and Fleetwood Mac's Mick Fleetwood, and a comical series of mishaps.
In 1992, anarchic dance duo The KLF fired blanks from a toy machine gun at the audience and dumped a dead sheep at the entrance to the venue.
Four years later, Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker stormed the stage in protest while Michael Jackson performed surrounded by children.
In 1998, Chumbawamba vocalist Danbert Nobacon dumped a bucket of iced water over then deputy prime minister John Prescott.
And Madonna suffered whiplash injuries at the 2015 edition when she fell off the stage wearing a giant cape and surrounded by dancers wearing bondage-style costumes and horns on their heads.
