Of course, the first port of call has to be Manic Street Preachers who in 1997 won the Best Group and Best Album awards after the success of Everything Must Go.

They won both awards again in 1999 - with the demonic Nicky Wire performing admirably with a skipping rope while wearing a dress. They also performed You Stole The Sun From My Heart.

In 2001 Stereophonics performed Mama Told Me Not To Come with Tom Jones. Tom also duetted in 1998 with Robbie Williams as part of a medley by the ex-Take That man.

Back in 1994 Pet Shop Boys performed their camp classic Go West with an unidentified Welsh Male Voice choir dressed as miners.

Welsh involvement has been pretty thin on the ground over the years, and none of the presenters has ever been Welsh (unless you count Gavin And Stacey's Matthew Horne who presented last year's awards with James Corden.)

But who's betting against Marina being a nominee for Best British Female next year? And can you think of any more Welsh people at the Brits we've missed?
