1989 Brit Awards

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The 1989 Brit Awards were the 9th edition of the biggest annual pop music awards in the United Kingdom. They are run by the British Phonographic Industry and took place on 13 February 1989 at Royal Albert Hall in London. This year marked the first presentation of the International Female Solo Artist and International Male Solo Artist awards.

The awards ceremony, hosted by Mick Fleetwood and Samantha Fox, was televised live by the BBC.[1] Fleetwood and Fox's hosting of the ceremony was widely criticised in the media, which led the decision to record the future events for broadcast the following night (until 2007).[2] They continually missed cues and fluffed their lines, and Fox mistakenly introduced Boy George as the Four Tops. Government minister Kenneth Baker was booed by the audience. A pre-recorded message by Michael Jackson was never broadcast, despite the show ending several minutes early.[3]
