Amy Winehouse denied VISA, no Grammy appearance
Amy Winehouse won't make it to the Grammy's on Sunday despite the fact that the British singer is nominated for six awards.
Winehouse, who is currently in rehab, has been denied a US Visa by the American Embassy in London.
Amy's publicist released this statement:
"Amy Winehouse will not be performing at this year’s Grammy Awards ceremony.
The singer has been invited to appear at the event on Sunday (February 10) after receiving an amazing 6 nominations for the prestigious awards.
Unfortunately, her application for a visa to enter the United States of America has been rejected at this time by the American Embassy in London.
Amy has been progressing well since entering a rehabilitation clinic two weeks ago and although disappointed with the decision has accepted the ruling and will be concentrating on her recovery.
Amy has been treated well and fairly by the Embassy staff and thanks everyone for their support in trying to make this happen.
There will of course be other opportunities and she very much looks forward to visiting America in the near future."
On Thursday, Winehouse checked out of rehab to go visit her husband who is currently in jail. She later returned to continue her treatment for drug and alcohol abuse.
