2011 MTV Video Music Awards Performances: A Tribute to Amy Winehouse

THE VMAs ARE BACK!!! The 2011 MTV Video Music Awards aired live Sunday, Aug. 28 at 9 p.m. ET on MTV following the Selena Gomez-hosted pre-show at 8. The MTV Video Music Awards marks its 27th year this time around. Lady Gaga danced straight across the cosmos in her hyperactive, overstuffed clip for “Born This Way.”

A cast of pop stars will pay homage to both the recently deceased Amy Winehouse and the recently resurgent Britney Spears. The two are among the most important female artists of the past decade, and represent the two very different versions of MTV.

Tony Bennett, whose duet with Winehouse that appears on his upcoming "Duets II" album and is the last recording she made before her death, will introduce the tribute. MTV and Bennett have released a statement detailing that the tribute would feature a debut video of Bennett's and Winehouse's recording session at the Abbey Road Studios in London.
