2012 BRIT Awards: Watch the Whitney Houston, Amy Winehouse Tribute Videos

In between handing out odd-looking trophies last night, the 2012 BRIT Awards took time to remember two talented female vocalists who passed away within the past year, Whitney Houston and Amy Winehouse.

Host James Corden said of Houston, “For three decades, she not only inspired the world with her incredible voice but also influenced many of the artists here with us tonight.” The brief montage featured clips from Houston’s music videos, set to a track of Houston’s 1988 Summer Olympics theme ‘One Moment in Time.’

While it was nice to see the BRITs remember Whitney, we have to say the 30-second montage looked like it took maybe five minutes to put together. It was not the most moving tribute we’ve seen of the great singer.

Winehouse’s remembrance was a bit more thoughtful, if only because the montage included photos from her life dating back to childhood, and it included audio clips from interviews Winehouse had given. In one clip, Winehouse said, “I thought I’d be a waitress or something. Or a housewife.” She also added a timely piece of advice: “Life is short. Do it!”
