  • The 1996 Brit Awards take place at Earls Court Exhibition Centre. The awards event is famous for the invasion of the live performance stage by singer Jarvis Cocker as Michael Jackson was performing Earth Song, ending with Jackson as a 'Christ-like figure' surrounded by children. Cocker and his friend Peter Mansell (a former Pulp member) performed an impromptu stage invasion in protest. Cocker was subsequently detained but then released without charge.
