Tony Bennett was part of Amy Winehouse's final recording, and revealed Thursday on The Daily Show that the 27-year-old crooner — who tragically passed away this summer — knew her days were numbered.

Amy joined Tony for a collaboration on his album Duets II, and the duo recorded in London.

While Tony was amazed and moved by her vocal prowess and soulful jazz singing, he sensed that something was wrong.

"She knew that she was in a lot of trouble," he told Jon Stewart. "That she wasn't going to live."

Amy's final music video for "Body & Soul" was released on Sept. 14, what would have been her 28th birthday.

The new video is raw footage of Amy singing in London’s Abbey Road Studios with Tony.
