Throw some of the biggest names in music in one room together, give them unlimited booze and point some cameras at them – and what you’ve got is a recipe for absolute mayhem.
The 2001 Brit Awards Were Another Action-Packed And Chaotic Year For The Awards Show
That’s certainly been the case with the Brit Awards for the last 40 years, where the annual ceremony has sparked countless outrageous moments.
As we get ready for this year’s ceremony – which take place on 11 May – we’re casting our minds back 20 years to one of our favourite Brits ever, back in 2001.
During that iconic year, Eminem crashed the stage clad in a hockey mask and brandishing a chainsaw, but even he was no match for Geri Halliwell let loose with a microphone.
Here are some of our highlights from the 2001 Brits...Let’s start where all good awards shows begin, the red carpet, where looks included this...This...And, indeed, this... Carol Vorderman also made quite an impression in this ensembleAnd Brits staple Kylie Minogue sported this bedazzled numberAnd the gals from Atomic Kitten clearly enjoyed themselves on the red carpet, tooMeanwhile, Dane Bowers apparently had an inkling about how the night was going to go downHe wasn’t wrong, either. Craig David started the night on six nominations, but ended up going home totally empty-handed Craig did get to perform his hit Fill Me In on the night, though, even if he didn’t actually get to win anythingOther performers on the night included Destiny’s Child (back when Beyoncé used to actually attend the Brits)...Hear’Say, fresh from topping the charts with their hit Pure And Simple very serious rendition of Pure And Simple" data-caption="Hear'Say give a very serious rendition of Pure And Simple" data-rich-caption="Hear'Say give a very serious rendition of Pure And Simple" data-credit="JMEnternational via Getty Images" data-credit-link-back="" />And a then-emerging band named Coldplay, making their very first appearance at the Brit AwardsHowever, the performance of the night was undoubtedly Eminem, who made a shocking entrance brandishing a chainsaw The performance itself is still considered one of the most popular in Brits history Eminem’s involvement in the show prompted a backlash over his homophobic lyrics, with LGBTQ rights activists protesting the event. After collecting his award for Best International Male, the Rapper hugged his friend Sir Elton John on stageMeanwhile, Geri Halliwell presented the Best British Male Award to Robbie Williams, commenting: “According to the press, he’s been giving me one. So let me return the favour...”Robbie gave a surprisingly heartfelt acceptance speech during one of his three wins that night And yes, by the way, that’s Ant and Dec on presenting duties. Here they are posing quite unconvincingly ahead of the ceremony...Madonna was awarded Best International Female, but couldn’t attend, so sent this video featuring then-husband Guy Ritchie instead  There was some controversy on the night, too, when Oasis’ Noel Gallagher took aim at A1 for winning Best British Breakthrough  Other winners on the night included Sonique for Best British FemaleFatboy Slim for Best British Dance ActAnd U2, who closed the show with a medley of their hits after winning Outstanding Contribution To Music (they also gave a shout-out to Craig David with a quick blast of Walking Away during their set) And finally, who wants to see the most 2001 image of all time? Yes, it’s Jonathan Wilkes and Robbie Williams backstage at the Brit Awards READ MORE:25 Memorable Brit Awards Performances That Had Us All TalkingAll The Biggest Snubs And Surprises From This Year's Brit Awards Nominations29 Infamous And Outrageous Moments That Defined The Brit Awards
