Amy Winehouse had never attended the MTV Video Music Awards, but she was remembered by everyone who has appeared in the pop-star-studded 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. On the Sunday award show, the British singer was paid tribute who died a month ago, after years of substance abuse. However, the tribute was led by Tony Bennett, Russell Brand and Bruno Mars.

Brand took the mic and said that she was a mate of him and tragically this year they lost her. He went on saying that first time he met her; she was kind of like a daft person who is just wandering around a little bit crazy, she was among lot of people who are drawn to the big city with a peculiar unknowable talent. He added that the incredible and extraordinary voice coming from her is stinking of booze, a loopy and loose-cannon person.

Later, he introduced Amy’s duet partner of ‘Body and Soul’, Tony Bennett who has taken over the stage to honour the ‘Back to Black’ hit-maker. Footage of his recording session with the singer at the famed Abbey Road Studios in London was screened. He added that she sang beautiful and they made a recording of it and he love to take a look at it. Earlier, he told that of all the young artists he has ever met in last 20 years, she was a true jazz artist in the tradition of Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday.
