We hope she changed her mind after actually seeing the tribute last night.
Dionne Bromfield, the goddaughter of Amy Winehouse, took to her Twitter yesterday to share her disdain with the choices MTV made in artists to pay tribute to her mentor. Of course, at the time that she posted, there was a lot of speculation as to who would actually pay tribute to her, but Dionne wanted to make it clear that she wasn't happy about it.
She first shot off a tweet about Jesse J, which she later took down, claiming that she was a poor choice to bring life to Amy's work. Then, instead of insisting who shouldn't be on stage, she offered up some suggestions on who should. She tweeted:

The 15-year-old singing godchild of Amy Winehouse opened up in a recent radio interview on the death of her godmother.
According to Dionne Bromfield, Amy was at her best just days before her July 23rd death:

Dionne Bromfield has a lot to be thankful for. At only 15-year-old, she has already been blessed with so much - immense talent, a shining new career and the love of an equally talented godmother, who lovingly forged the path so that Dionna could have a career. Yes, there is no doubt that Amy Winehouse loved Dionne and at the Big Chill Music Festival in the UK last night, she remembered that. She told the crowd:
"She was an amazing singer. She was not only my godmother, but she was my mentor and my boss as well."
We're sure its a loss she won't soon heal from.
Dionne closed her show with a special tribute to her godmother and mentor - a duet the pair put together when Amy was alive.
So beautiful! Her legacy will live on in you, hun!

Take all the time you need, you two!
Less than a week ago, Amy Winehouse appeared on stage at the iTunes Festival to cheer on her goddaughter Dionne Bromfield.
Now, following Amy's death, 15-year-old Dionne has cancelled all of her shows so she can grieve in privacy.
Here's what she had to say about Amy's passing:

Although Amy Winehouse chose not to sing, please check out the late singer's last recorded time on stage, cheering her protege, Dionne Bromfield, as she performed at the iTunes Festival on Wednesday night (above).
Despite her many personal troubles and struggles with addiction, we imagine that this is exactly how she'd like to be remembered: looking healthy, happy, and proud of her goddaughter.
That's the Amy we should be focusing on - the talented, supportive, and loving young woman who truly changed and inspired so many with her music.
May she R.I.P.
