Google it then get back to me.
In a nut shell this happens when there is no winner of the required amount of delegates. It then goes to a negotiating process.

"In politics, a brokered convention--where the nominee is determined at the convention and not beforehand in the state primaries and caucuses--would be the equivalent of an extraordinary event like someone breaking the single-season home run record, or of a mid-major Cinderella winning the NCAA tournament."

Do we want this? YES. There's no way we'd get the nomination otherwise. I think we all know we're not going to win the popular vote during the primaries.
