'VH1 Divas Celebrate Soul': Amy Winehouse Honored With Tribute (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

"VH1 Divas Celebrates Soul" (Mon., 9PM ET on VH1) honored the greats, as well as those inspired by them. But in a rare twist, it was some of the greats honoring a newer artist when rapper Nas introduced a segment as tribute to the late Amy Winehouse. Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings kicked it off, later joined by legendary rockabilly singer Wanda Jackson.

Then the stage was cleared for Florence Welch of Florence + the Machine to mesmerize the enthusiastic crowd with her take on "Back in Black." Many of the artists in attendance praised Winehouse in red carpet interviews.

"She was the most incredible artist," Welch said. "I feel kind of overwhelmed."
