Watch Amy Winehouse Win Best New Artist Via Cyndi Lauper And Miley Cyrus | GRAMMY Rewind
The late singer Amy Winehouse was in London at the time (and set to perform via satellite), so Miley Cyrus and Cyndi Lauper accepted the award on her behalf.
The vocal powerhouse Amy Winehouse, who tragically passed away in 2011, is canon by now—the music world has long deemed her one of the greats. 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 in 2008.
