We break down the show's insane past
The BRIT Awards are known as the U.K.'s equivalent to The Grammys—but with a quirky twist.
It started as a 1977 broadcast honoring Queen Elizabeth's quarter century on the throne with a ceremony dedicated to the last 25 years of popular music.
This year the awards could go down in crazy BRITs history for better or for worse. Justin Timberlake is performing...which you know is going to be crazy good. Taylor Swift and One Direction are also playing, which could be crazy bad if she uses a mocking British accent, like she did at The Grammys, to throw a jab at ex Harry Styles.
It's an award show you need to watch to not miss any juicy moments. Watch the above to get caught up on its history and tune in February 20 when the show is broadcast exclusively on Fuse.
