    Britney Spears will be the guest of honor at the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards and producers at the network and the ceremony are planning a "unique" tribute to honor the pop star's career.

    This year's VMAs air on Aug. 28 from Los Angeles.

    VMA executive producer Amy Doyle told our friends at Billboard that "Britney will be at the show and we'll be paying tribute to her. She was having an incredible year and she is so beloved by the MTV audience that we started to think what could we do that would be a different experience."

    Doyle continued, "Obviously everything from her choreography to her fashion to her videos will be (covered). We said, 'Let's challenge ourselves to do something unique'."

    We can't wait to see what the crew at MTV comes up with to celebrate all that is Brit Brit.

    Late singer Amy Winehouse is also likely to be acknowledged at the VMAs. Doyle said, "We had a great history with Amy. She was very near and dear to us."

    Will you be tuning into the MTV VMAs on Sunday, Aug. 28?
