Ah, the British. There is no denying that they are much smoother, much more tamer now than they were in their heyday of the 80s and 90s.
Will we ever see another scene invasion, a politician get drenched, or one of the country's biggest stars offering another to fight? Probably not.
british awards takes place on Tuesday and will mark the 40th anniversary of the UK's biggest musical awards show with taste performances from Billie eilish, Harry Styles, Lewis Capaldi and Stormzy.
As this is a special occasion, let's take a look at some of the biggest shocks and outrageous moments in the history of the ceremony.
Picture: Poor Rick Astley. Winner of the 1998 best song for Never Gonna Give You Up, he had a long way to the stage and the show was overwhelming - so he was cut for the return performance of The Who. I'll never say goodbye - or thank you for the price, either Picture: The accommodation functions of Mick Fleetwood and Samantha Fox in 1989 were included in the folklore of the Brit Awards. Aside from the height difference, the disastrous appearance also involved a broken autocue and a lot of confusion. They weren't invited to come back Picture: During the same show, Andy Bell of Erasure on the cheek of Boy George drew great acclaim from the crowd. He then declared that he protested against article 28, introduced the previous year, which prevented the "promotion" of homosexuality in schools. Picture: The KLF provoked British anarchy in 1992, shooting the crowd blank. Singer Bill Drummond was prevented from shedding sheep's blood - and, apparently, cutting his hand live on television.

Here they are in 1996, when Noel Gallagher called Michael Hutchence an INXS has-been on stage, after accepting the award for best video.

Things can only get better, huh? Photo: JM Enternational / Shutterstock Picture: But it’s Michael Jackson’s Earth Song performance that year that still remains one of the biggest controversies in the series - thanks to Pulp’s Jarvis Cocker, who, disgusted by “the act of Jesus”, invades the scene and wiggled her buttocks in protest Picture: After being arrested and questioned about his antics, Cocker was later informed that he would not be prosecuted. The news was announced at a press conference - and Cocker cemented himself as a British hero Picture: The 1997 Brit Awards were all about Spice Girls, with the Union Jack dress made from a Geri Halliwell tea towel, one of the most talked about moments in award history.

Photo: Alan Davidson / Shutterstock Picture: In 1998, he fell to Tubthumping Chumbawumba to cause upheaval. This came in the form of an aspiration from MP John Prescott with ice water, for his "vain attempt to make Labor look cool and trendy" Picture: In 2000, DJ Brandon Block made his way onto the stage, interrupting Ronnie Wood after apparently jokingly saying that he had won a gong. Wood called him, uh, a name, it all started, a glass was thrown away, but host Davina McCall kept it cool Picture: The same year, Robbie Williams challenged Liam Gallagher, who became an enemy friend, very publicly. The late Caroline Aherne, presenting her award, said what we all thought - she didn't like her chances. Photo: Richard Young / Shutterstock Picture: With a lot of lame gold, Ali G arrived from a sofa in the air to interpret Me Julie with Shaggy at the 2002 prices. Photo: Richard Young / Shutterstock Picture: By today's standards, it was pretty PG, but when Justin Timberlake caught the most famous pop bum at 2003 prices, it was news that hit the headlines. Photo: Richard Young / Shutterstock Picture: The first Britons to be broadcast live in years, the organizers probably wanted a safe pair of hands in 2007. Instead, they chose Russell Brand, whose jokes sparked hundreds of Ofcom complaints. All advertising is good advertising, etc. Picture: Also in 2007: what happened with Joss Stone's accent? You're not from California, Joss, you're from Devon Picture: Nominated for the best group for the first time, 2008 was a great year for the British Girls Aloud. However, four became five overnight - apparently because Nadine Coyle forgot her passport. Picture: The British 2008 will also be remembered as the year of the complaints against the language of Sharon Osbourne, which included cries of obscenity towards the comedian Vic Reeves while he stumbled over his words while awarding a prize Picture: Another Briton, another Gallagher. In 2010, just a few months after the separation from Oasis, Liam launched his microphone while accepting an award for best British album in the past 30 years. Gracious as always. Host Peter Kay called him n ***** d. Photo: Dave M Benett / Getty Images Picture: After being interrupted by host James Corden during his 2012 speech, Adele gave the middle finger. Come on Adele, at least you have to say something - think of poor Mr. Astley. Photo: Dave M. Benett / Getty Images Picture: Price discounts can be long, so it's no wonder stars have to get out of the bathroom quickly. In 2014, Harry Styles chose the worst possible moment for his short break, almost missing the worldwide success for One Direction Picture: Also in 2014, Arctic Monkeys won the best group and the best album. Leader Alex Turner gave a bizarre talk about rock n roll, literally dropped the microphone, no one really knew what to say Picture: If you were a dancer maneuvering around a star in a large cape, who is the only person you wouldn't want to arrest? Madonna, who is. Viewers watched in horror as the queen of pop fell in 2015. Without a doubt, words were exchanged. Photo: Shutterstock Picture: The presenters Ant and Dec did not know where to look when the lightly dressed model Sadie Pinn bombed them during their presentation. Poor loves Picture: In a rather embarrassing exchange in 2018, host Jack Whitehall ended up talking to Cheryl Cole and Liam Payne about their sex life and their safe words. Fortunately, they were photo-bombed by Este de Haim, which diverted attention Picture: And finally, after winning two of the biggest prizes of the evening, Stormzy was the star of 2018. "Theresa May, where's the money for Grenfell? He asked the Prime Minister, delivering the most memorable British performance in years
