The BRITs 1992

Date: 12/02/1992
Location: Hammersmith Odeon, London
Host: Simon Bates (voice over)



Seal stole the show – the first at the Hammersmith Odeon – with the first hat-trick of wins in the history of the BPI/BRIT Awards while Simply Red and KLF (who later dumped a dead sheep at the official dinner venue) tied for the title Best British Group, the first and only time a BRIT award has been shared.

Queen won Best Single (15 years after Bohemian Rhapsody won them the same title) and singer Freddie Mercury was posthumously given the Outstanding Contribution award a year after his death while singer Lisa Stansfield completed her own hat-trick by winning a BRIT Award for the third consecutive year.
