The “Born This Way” singer added that Amy’s bold and unique ways — from her style to her soulful tone — helped pave the way for people like her in the industry.

Nominated for six Grammys in 2008, Amy won much acclaim taking home five awards, including “Record of the Year” and “Song of the Year” for her smash hit “Rehab.”
