Four trophies out of four meant Harry Styles was the big success story at this year’s Brits.

The Brit Awards — the highs …

1990: was the final public appearance of Freddie Mercury

Mercury made his last public appearance to collect the award for outstanding contribution to British music alongside his Queen bandmates. Looking gaunt, his only words were: “Thank you … goodnight.”

1996: Jarvis Cocker’s protest against Michael Jackson
In a prescient display, Cocker got up on stage and waggled his bum during MJ’s sanctimonious, performance of Earth Song.

1997: the Spice Girls steal the show
The Spice Girls made their Brits mark thanks not only to Geri Halliwell’s union jack mini dress (hastily fashioned from a tea towel) but Mel C's offering to fight Liam Gallagher.

and of course the — lows…

2012: Adele getting cut off for Blur
Adele’s acceptance speech for best album (for 21) was cut off to fit in a live performance from Blur (whose frontman Damon Albarn would, years later, accuse her of being “insecure”).

2014: Alex Turner’s “that rock’n’roll — speech
It’s hard to tell whether the Arctic Monkeys frontman’s acceptance speech for best album (for AM) was fuelled by cocaine (he says not) or was an attempt at sleazy performance art.

Well, there goes another year for the Brits who will be on the list for 2024, are the Brits relevant anymore?
