Amy Winehouse Gets U.S. Visa After All!
But due to timing, Winehouse will still only perform at the Grammys via satellite
The U.S. government has reversed its decision and is saying “yes, yes, yes” to granting Amy Winehouse a visa for Sunday’s Grammy Awards.
But because of the tight timing, reps for the nominee say she’s going to stick to her plan to perform live via satellite from London.
“Unfortunately, due to the logistics involved and timing complications, Amy will not be coming to the U.S. this weekend to perform at the Grammys in Los Angeles, however she will still be performing via satellite broadcast from London as previously announced this morning,” her U.S. rep says in a statement.
The statement adds: “Amy would like to thank all of those people, and in particular the staff involved at the U.S. Embassy in London, who have all worked so hard to expedite her application. She is very sad not to be attending the prestigious awards in person, but wishes to express her heartfelt gratitude to all of those involved in the process.”
