This year's BRITs show will pay tribute to the two iconic artists, who have both died over past year.

Whitney Houston and Amy Winehouse are to be honoured during the BRITs 2012 ceremony tomorrow night (21st February).

The annual awards show has reportedly been adjusted to cater for special tributes to the artists, both of whom have died in the past eight months.

"Whitney and Amy are two of the biggest female stars in the history of music," a source told The Metro today (20th February). "Both have made their mark onstage at the Brits in the past. 

"Something would feel missing if both their legacies weren't remembered at the show."

Amy Winehouse died back in July 2011 at the age of 27, while 'I Will Always Love You' singer Whitney was found dead just over a week ago (11th February) in Los Angeles and was buried over the weekend (18th February) in New Jersey.

Both artists are former BRIT Awards winners with Amy Winehouse having taken home Best Female Solo Artist in 2007 and Whitney picking up Best Soundtrack/Cast Recording for The Bodyguard back in 1994.

The BRIT Awards 2012 are due to take place at London's O2 Arena tomorrow night, and will be aired on ITV1 from 8pm.
