The late Amy Winehouse was awarded the gong for Best Performance By A Duo Or Group for her duet with Tony Bennet on 'Body And Soul' at this year's Grammy Awards.

The 2012 Grammy Awards were tinged with sadness this year; Whitney Houston, Etta James and Amy Winehouse were each remembered in turn, with the show's producers working hard to ensure each iconic musical voice was paid tribute in a fitting manner.

Amy passed away last year at the age of 27, but Bennett called the late star's parents onto the stage to accept the posthumous award on her behalf.

Amy's father expressed his grief in the simplest of words:

"We shouldn't be here. Our darling daughter should be here. These are the cards that we're dealt."

Mitch Winehous ended his touching speech by paying his respects to Etta James and Whitney Houston whilst he was on stage:

"Long live Whitney Houston, long live Amy Winehouse, Long live Etta James. There's a beautiful girl band up in heaven."

Bennett did not make an acceptance speech, allowing the late Amy Winehouse to be remembered and credited for her art.
