Amy Winehouse scored five Grammys last night: Record of the Year, Best New Artist, Song of the Year for “Rehab,” Best Vocal Album and Best Pop Vocal Performance. She accepted the award live via satellite from London. Her visa request was denied but then accepted at the last minute. Amy chose to perform closer to home. Us Magazine reports:
After accepting her award, an emotional Winehouse, who was joined on stage by her dad and mom, thanked her parents, record label and “incarcerated Blake” — her husband, who has been behind bars since last last year.
“I can’t believe I’ve won 5 awards. It’s a shame I couldn’t be there to accept the awards but I’m so proud and happy that I had the opportunity to perform for the Grammys in my hometown of London with my family and friends around me,” she said. “Thank you, thank you, thank you!” .
Amy Winehouse’s performance (video after the jump) was surprisingly lucid. Much like Britney Spears it seems Amy is getting her ducks in a row. With the two of them on the top of their game, Britney and Amy should put their heads together and form a brain trust. They could find a cure for cancer. I mean, once they’re done putting test tubes on all their fingers and trying to eat a lab monkey.
