Rufus Wainwright paid tribute to Amy Winehouse during the final night of his Royal Opera House residency yesterday.

Dedicating the last song of the evening to Winehouse, he performed a new track which he originally wrote for his late mother Kate McGarrigle.

Wainwright said: "Amy, this is for you," as he introduced the track, before singing a capella.

He also described Winehouse as "fantastic and marvellous". The singer died in London yesterday aged 27.
