Winehouse is nominated for Best British Female Solo Artist, for the soundtrack to documentary Amy.
Mitch Winehouse, the father of late singer Amy Winehouse, has said he doesn’t want his daughter to win the Brit Award for Best British Female Solo Artist at tonight’s ceremony.

Mitch Winehouse does not want his daughter to win a Brit Award tonight.
