The MTV Video Music Awards have confirmed that at this year’s awards they will be honoring Britney Spears’ work by paying tribute to the pop princess.

Executive vice president of Music and Talent for MTV, Amy Doyle, told, “Britney will be at the show and we’ll be paying tribute to her.” She continued, “She was having an incredible year and she is so beloved by the MTV audience that we started to think what could we do that would be a different experience (from years past). Obviously everything from her choreography to her fashion to her videos will be (covered). We said ‘let’s challenge ourselves to do something unique.'”

The VMA’s will also pay tribute to UK soul singer Amy Winehouse, who tragically died at her home last month. “We had a great history with Amy,” EVP Doyle said.

The annual awards show will take place in Los Angeles at the Nokia Theatre on August 28th.
