The Brit Awards will take place on Wednesday night at The O2 in London and the ceremony, hosted by Dermot O’Leary and Emma Willis, is set to be the 37th show in the history of the iconic pop music event.

There’s been plenty of controversy, star clashes and even protests at the Brits, as well as the odd appearance from Hollywood royalty – Scarlett Johansson walked the red carpet back in 2004 dont’cha know?

To celebrate, we’ve collected the best red carpet and stage moments, including Madonna falling down the stairs, Adele giving producers the middle finger and Robbie Williams challenging Noel Gallagher to a fight.

Enjoy!
