The Brit Awards are a big deal. The nearest thing Britain has to the Grammys’, each year the pop-skewing side of the nation’s music talent gathers to see who is the best. While the awards and speeches are the point, what seems to stick in the British consciousness are the performances. Ginger Spice’s Union Jack dress. Gorillaz’ playing “live” for the first time. Adele breaking hearts with “Someone Like You.”

These will always be iconic moments in British Pop. But BRITS performances also have the ability to outrage delicate sensibilities as well: Whether it be The KLF featuring Extreme Noise Terror thrash punk reworking of “3AM Eternal”, Pulp’s Jarvis Cocker mooning Michael Jackson or Kanye West beating the censor when debuting “All Day.” But the most complained about performance in BRITS history happened in 2020, and it made Britain ask some serious questions. Most frequently: Who is Dave? This is New British Canon and this is the story of “Black.”
