The BRITs 1990

Date: 18/02/1990
Location: Dominion Theatre, London
Host: Cathy McGowan



A new venue this year with a move to the Dominion Theatre where 60s TV star Cathy McGowan took over as host. U2, Phil Collins, Annie Lennox and partner Dave Stewart, as Best Producer, all carried on winning while Nigel Kennedy, Soul II Soul, Neneh Cherry and Rod Stewart were among the performers on the night.

But there was still a hint of controversy when double winners Fine Young Cannibals reacted to a video appearance by Margaret Thatcher choosing her own favourite pop song (she picked How Much Is That Doggy In The Window?) by returning their awards.
