I really had my fingers crossed for this one. Amy Winehouse performed at the St. Lucia Jazz Festival over the weekend, her first real performance in months since taking a break to get clean and record her new album.
Everyone pretty much expected the worst, and that’s what they got.
By all accounts it was a shambolic scene with the Winebarrel stumbling about, forgetting the lyrics to her biggest hits and generally making a mockery of the whole situation.
What I find most bizarre is that when I’m absolutely slaughtered, I mean really, properly shitfaced, I have no problems remembering her lyrics… In fact they seem to just leap out of my mouth.
She seems to be the only person in the world that can’t neck two bottles of cheap piss and belt out Rehab brilliantly.
Anyhow, fingers crossed it was just her ‘medication’ of some violent strain of hayfever. Come back Amy, you’re very much missed.
Feel free to watch her fail of a gig in the video here, just brace yourself to be underwhelmed.
