So it’s sobering to relive the moment when Winehouse won Best New Artist—even when Winehouse was abroad at the time. (She would perform via satellite later in the show.)
In the latest episode of GRAMMY Rewind, watch a mega-exuberant Cyndi Lauper and Miley Cyrus accept the award on Winehouse’s behalf at the 50th GRAMMY Awards show in 2008.
