On the day Amy Winehouse was cremated, MTV announced a special tribute concert to celebrate the late singer's life and musical legacy. They dug into their vaults to find her rarely-seen performances from the year of 2007 when she was at the height of her superstardom.

The footage was taken from an intimate set which took place at Times Square studios as part of "45th at Night" live series. It will feature Winehouse singing such songs as "Rehab", "Back to Black", "Me & Mr. Jones" and "You Know I'm No Good". A duet with Mos Def will also be included.

Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London Apartment on July 23. Condolences and tributes have since flooded the web to honor her. Some celebrities like Rihanna, Usher, Kelly Clarkson and Katy Perry mourned her death on Twitter by posting heartfelt messages.

However, Microsoft came under fire when posting a commercially-motivated obituary. Their tweet which read "Remember Amy Winehouse by downloading the ground-breaking 'Back to Black' over at Zune" was deemed "insensitive". They were forced to delete it and issue an apology.

After the corporation was slammed for the "download tweet," Keri Hilson landed in a similar situation. Some of the fans were furious because she posted a picture of Winehouse look-alike which seemed to be pretty out of it. "*gasp* Amy Winehouse resurrected to party w/ me!!! (seriously, uncanny resemblance)," she wrote.

Despite the critique, the R&B singer called her Twitter post "the best tribute ever." "Come on, I mean no harm. All due respect. But really the resemblance freaked me out," she came to her own defense. "#RIPAMYWINEHOUSE."

She later changed her tune, "I apologize 2 anyone who might've taken it the wrong way. As a fan, I thought it was cool that she dressed up to honor Amy..I had no ill intent, but I understand how it appears insensitive...my bad twitterville."

This is to ph58crazy. I don't even know why I am even responding to your stupid statement. Even you call yourself "CRAZY". It is amazing to me how cold, cruel, insensitive people can be. She had a disease. SHES WAS SICK. It is very easy to sit back and judge someone's weaknesses. But until you have walked in that persons shows; not to even mention the fact that you don't even know her, never met her only know what you think you see or hear. Have you ever held a conversation with her? NO! If you have ever listened to her music from your heart (I guess not from the sound of things you don't even have one) you will you hear that she's been crying out in pain for the longest. You can hear the pain in her voice, to be sooo young, to sing with so much soul and passion. It is a mentally weak individual who can sick back & judge someone else's struggles. When you look at the person in the mirror what do you see? Huh? There is no perfect person on this earth. Not one! We all have our crap. Her's was just out in the open where every self-righteous, weak minded, suffering from low self esteem individual could sit back & judge her to make themselves feel better. Every dog has it's day, in this life there will be trials and tribulations lets just see how you will handle your demons. If you can sit back & judge her struggles, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know, THAT YOU HAVE NEVER BEEN THROUGH ANY THING WHERE YOU HAD TO FIGHT FOR YOU LIFE. BUT YOU WILL. Then let's see how much mouth you have after your rude of awakening.
