Amy Winehouse dominated the Grammy Awards Sunday night. She took home five awards including record of the year, song of the year, best new artist. Amy performed “You Know I’m No Good” and “Rehab” via satellite during which she called out for Blake, her incarcerated husband. She also called out to him during her acceptance speech.
“I can’t believe I’ve won five awards,” she told the intimate crowd, including her mother Janis, father Mitch and older brother Alex. “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. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
Amy’s idea of performing is to bounce around and wiggle her knees while waving her hands in the air. It’s like she’s trying to shake her tampon loose. Which, if you think about it, would have been pretty cool since the Grammy Awards seems really boring. I’d rather be dragged through a field of cactuses than sit through this.
