2013 BRIT Awards

Get Up on the BRIT Awards' History of Crazy

We break down the show's insane past
 / February 15, 2013

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.

But throughout the years, the show has evolved into a prestigious music award show infamous for its shocking moments—like Adele flipping the bird on-air last year.

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.
