Over the years the BRIT Awards have given us some iconic moments.
From Madonna tumbling off stage during her closing 2015 performance to Michael Jackson's stage invader back in 1996, just about anything that could go down at the BRITs has.
Cheryl even decided to use the February 2018 awards to tell the world her "safe-word" for wild romps with then-boyfriend Liam Payne.
The event is on tonight (May 11) and names like Dua Lipa and Maya Jama headed to London's O2 for the exciting event – one of the only to be taking place in person because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Over the past year, fans have been starved of the usual excitement that comes with award shows, so, to appease you slightly, Daily Star is here with a run down of the most explosive BRITs moments of all time.
Madonna's cape-disaster leads to on-stage fall
In 2015 Madonna made her heavily hyped comeback to the BRITS stage.
The Queen of Pop made a long dramatic entrance covered in a cape, striding down the catwalk with purpose.
However, when it came for her to belt out Living For Love it only took seconds for things to go wrong.
Standing at the top of red stairs in the middle of the stage the music icon sang the line "I let down my guard".
As she did she untied her cape of her dancers to pull off from behind her.
But in a toe-curling fail Madge was unable to untie the knot in time and was dragged backwards with it.
Ever the pro, a shaken Madonna quickly got back up and continued on with her performance as if nothing had happened.
Awkwardly, the song's chorus includes the lines: "Lifted me up and watched me stumble/ Now that it's over I'm going to carry on."
Peter Kay brands Liam Gallagher a k*** head
Peter Kay was not impressed when Oasis rocker Liam Gallagher chucked his microphone on the floor after accepting an award.
Liam snubbed Noel during the speech before bizarrely growling "live forever" throwing the mic on the floor and storming off.
Brian May, who had presented the award, was left standing awkwardly on his own.
As host for the evening returned to the stage to continue the show, he shook his head before declaring: "What a k*** head."
Michael Jackson's stage invasion
In 1996 King of Pop Michael Jackson took to the BRIT Awards stage to perform his emotive track Earth Song.
The dramatic performance saw MJ bathed in white light in front of a video montage of the world and nature being destroyed.
As he belted out the track and countless dancers acted out behind famine-stricken individuals, Jarvis Cocker strode onto the stage before lifting up his top.
As the cameras focused on him, multiple members of security could be seen running into view to push him backstage.
Michael appeared oblivious to the whole thing.
Adele gets cut off during acceptance speech
In 2012 Adele picked up the award for British Album Of The Year.
After being presented the award by George Michael, Adele starred to fan herself as she became overcome with emotion.
Looking teary, the Someone Like You superstar said: "Nothing makes me prouder than coming home with six Grammys and coming to the BRITS and winning Album Of The Year.
"I am so proud to be British…"
Suddenly, host James Corden appeared on stage and interrupted her speech.
"I am so so sorry and I can't believe I am doing this but…" he stuttered.
"You're gonna cut me off? Can I just say then Goodbye and I'll see you next time round, yeah" Adele hit back.
Furious, she then flipped the middle finger to the packed O2 Arena.
Robbie Williams challenges Liam Gallagher to a fight
Robbie used his BRIT award win in 2000 to challenge Liam Gallagher to a fight.
Keen to court controversy, the Rock DJ singer said: "Would anyone like to see me fight Liam?
"Would you pay to come and see it?
"Liam £100K of your money, £100K of my money, we will get in the ring and we will have a fight and you [ the crowd] can all watch it on TV… what do you think about that?"
While Liam wasn't even in the country when Robbie made the comment, he didn't forget it.
During a hairy appearance at the Q Awards the same year, Noel's brother hit back: "This one is for Robbie, as usual.
"He understands the letter Q."
Robbie left the awards show early that night.
When asked if he thought he drove Rob out, Liam replied: "No. I reckon he drove himself out, mate."
John Prescott gets soaked
Back in 1998, then-deputy Prime Minister John Prescott made a surprise appearance at the BRITs in an effort to appeal to young voters.
Unfortunately, things backfired when Chumbawamba drummer Danbert Nobacon chucked a bucket of water over his head.
Prescott had been sitting at his table at the time when the musician raced over to his table, brandishing the soggy surprise.
Nobacon was later escorted away from the table by security, though photographers managed to snap a few outraged photos of the deputy Prime Minister first.
The politician later branded the stunt as "utterly contemptible" and "cowardly" – which didn’t stop the super-soaked snapshot from going down in BRITs history.
The BRIT Awards 2021 air on ITV tonight at 8pm
