The Brit Awards 2016 took place yesterday, with Kim Wilde present. For this week's Throwback Thursday picture we simply had to look back on the BPI Awards 1983, when Kim Wilde won the award for Best British Female solo artist. Other winners were Michael Jackson, Pete Townshend and Paul McCartney. Two of them would later have a big impact on her life: Michael Jackson for taking her on the European leg of his Bad Tour in 1988, and Pete Townshend for giving her the role of Tommy's mother in the London West End musical version of Tommy in 1995. In many ways, this is an iconic photo.
