Winehouse will be up against Paloma Faith, Bat For Lashes, Jessie Ware and Emeli Sandé for the award. Sandé will also perform at the ceremony at London's O2 Arena, alongside Muse, Robbie Williams and One Direction.

The 'Back to Black' singer passed away in 2011 aged 27 at her home in Camden. A second inquest was recently held into the cause of her death after the original coroner was deemed unqualified.
