The Metro newspaper is today reporting that Amy Winehouse and Whitney Houston will both receive a special tribute at the Brit Awards, which is taking place tomorrow (February 21).
Winehouse and Houston have both passed away in the last 8 months and it is said that the schedule for the awards show has been altered in order to allow for performances in honour of the two singers. There is no official word yet as to how the stars will be honoured, but you should probably expect shoddy covers of 'Rehab' and 'I Will Always Love You'.
A 'backstage source' for the Metro had this to say about the tribute: "Whitney and Amy are two of the biggest female stars in the history of music. Both have made their mark onstage at the Brits in the past.
"Something would feel missing if both their legacies weren't remembered at the show."
Both Winehouse and Houston are former Brit winners, with Amy having won Best Female Solo Artist in 2007 and Whitney winning Best Soundtrack/Cast Recording for The Bodyguard in 1994.
Adele will also be performing at the show following her impressive comeback at the Grammy's. ‘I have a soft spot for The Brits," she said, "but this year feels really special. Last year it kick-started my album into what it’s become."
Blur will be picking up the Outstanding Contribution To Music award, and last night debuted a new song ahead of the show.
