    Crooner Tony Bennett will introduce a special tribute to Amy Winehouse at the VMAs, including video footage of the two recording "Body And Soul" this past March at Abbey Road Studios. This will mark Bennett's first VMAs appearance since 1993 and he will celebrate the work of his late duet partner.

    "It was a thrill to record with Amy Winehouse, and when you listen to the recording of 'Body and Soul,' it is a testament to her artistic genius and her brilliance as one of the most honest musicians I have ever known," Bennett said in a statement. That just about brought a tear to our eyes.

    The VMAs air on Sunday, Aug. 28, so tune in.

    Are you planning to check out "Body and Soul?"
