Amy Winehouse at the Grammys: Not a Disaster

posted by on February 11 at 11:06 AM

Amy Winehouse didn’t look stoned, her skin wasn’t blue, and she was standing on her own… until she won, of course. This is the first time I can remember that an artist honestly looked shocked and thankful for taking home a Grammy.

You’d have to be a monster to not get at least a little goosebumpy when you see the sincere, tearful look on her face.

It was nice Amy sang and did not slur her words. She seems to be on the mend, good for her. Go Amy!

Wow, my housemate and I both got teary-eyed at that little speech, and I'm not even a Winehouse fan. Awesome

Holey shit… Tony Bennett is still alive?

I met Tony Bennett a few years ago, and he is really a nice guy. I think Britney and Amy should do a house swap like in that Holiday movie from a couple years ago. Hugh Grant wan't in that, but Amy can't be any worse than that nasty Liz Hurley.

Right on. Amy Winehouse is one of the few artists at the Grammys this year who can sing well and write something that sounds different than the rest of today's cookie-cutter pop music. Glad to see that the Grammy voters gave her the awards even though she's been scandal-plagued of late.

@9:

She's one of my new favorites. I hope she can comprehend and value the gift of sobriety enough to stay there...it obviously looks good on her. Let's get a few more pounds on her body and a little less hair in that beehive.

The haters who consign her to the junk heap of addicts need to spend some time suffering from the illness. As a person in recovery, I know what it's like to try to kill yourself against your own better judgement and will.

Give the girl a break. Maybe she's not your cup o' tea, but she does have talent.

I had never given Winehouse much of a chance because of her tabloid persona (and "aging Ballard hipster" look), but after that performance last night I'm going to go out and buy her album. Girl smoked.

And yeah, I already have all of Sharon Jones' albums, so cram it.
