MTV VMAs to pay tribute to Britney spears and Amy winehouse

        A tribute to Britney Spears will be a part of this year's MTV Video Music Awards and the show's producers are discussing a way to salute Amy Winehouse as well.      
      Britney will be at the show and we'll be paying tribute to her," VMA executive producer Amy Doyle told Billboard, confirming speculation that has grown since a Spears promo for the show began airing.
In addition to the Spears tribute, VMA producers are "talking about acknowledging" Winehouse, who died July 23 in London  "We had a great history with Amy," Doyle said, mentioning a performance she did for the network's "45th at Night" show in 2007. "She was very near and dear to us."
    This year's VMAs will be broadcast from the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles on Aug. 28. The network hopes to announce a host in the near future and Doyle suggested that the show would continue the recent trend of bringing in newer talent as hosts. Chelsea Handler handled last year's telecast, Russell Brand the year before.
