The Brit Awards has produced its fair share of unscripted television gold, but which moments of memorable madness from this once anarchic ceremony do we remember the most?

On one hand, the Brit Awards can be viewed as a celebration of all that’s great about the UK music scene. On the other hand, it can be seen as a stark warning of what can go wrong when you stuff a large room full of fragile egos, free booze and television cameras.

Although in recent years the Brit Awards has become far more sanitized, less outrageous and no where near as entertaining as it once was. People still switch on in the millions, because it remains the only awards show capable of producing the unexpected, the bizarre, and the downright ugly all in the space of time it takes Geri Halliwell to squeeze into a Union Jack dress or Jarvis Cocker to bear his butt to Michael Jackson.

Traditionally, the Brit Awards has excelled exquisitely in awkward moments, duff duets, awful amateurism, foul-mouthed outbursts and ungrateful pop stars acting like wanton brats. With this heady cocktail mind, let’s take a peek at the top ten moments from the Brit bash.

Robbie Williams challenges Liam Gallagher

The Millennium Brits was memorable for the number of pop stars who felt it necessary to preen and posture like born again hard men. Who didn’t nearly choke violently with laughter as doe-eyed Stoke songbird Robbie Williams challenged Liam Gallagher to a televised boxing match for £100,000? And how can we forget Ronnie Wood squaring up to Ibiza boy Brandon Block, like Dot Cotton on amphetamine before throwing his drink over him and getting his good mate Vinnie Jones to have a word.

Jarvis Cocker moons the King of Pop

When Pulp front-man Jarvis Cocker bum-rushed Michael Jackson on stage it turned him into an overnight celebrity. Apparently Jarvis felt compelled to wiggle his bony a** in the King of Pop’s face because of Jackson’s pomposity and alleged messiah complex, and not because he was drunk and wanted to steal some of the moonwalker’s limelight.
