Amy Winehouse may be honoured posthumously at this year's MOBO Awards.

According to the Daily Mirror, the annual music show is considering tipping its hat to the late 'Back To Black' singer with an award and all-star musical tribute.

Jessie J is among the acts rumoured to be performing a medley of Winehouse's hits at the ceremony in Glasgow on October 20.

A show 'insider' told the newspaper:

In many ways Amy began her career at the MOBOs. Even before she was famous she would perform acoustically at their launch parties. We are working out a way for her to be remembered during the show itself in terms of artists performing her songs and it's quite possible there will be an award.

Winehouse won Best UK Female at the 2007 MOBOs, while her 2003 debut album 'Frank' earned two nominations.

The singer was found dead in her north London home two weeks ago (July 27). An investigation into the cause of her death is still ongoing.
