Amy Winehouse Granted Visa but Too Late for Grammys


Amy Winehouse
Amy Winehouse will stick to the initial plan to have her perform via satellite because there will be not enough time to pack her things and rehearse in L.A..


U.S. Embassy in London had reversed their decision to deny Amy Winehouse a visa to the States. The singer is now having an access to the country but still won't attend the 50th Grammys in Los Angeles where she is nominated for six nods, because it's too late.

On Thursday, February 7, the British act was denied a visa to U.S., prompting organizers for the Grammys ceremony which is held on February 10 to prepare an alternative that enables her to perform via satellite. The plan is kept even when the singer has been granted the visa 24 hours later.

A spokesperson for Winehouse explained, "Following further discussions involving the U.S. embassy in London and officials in the United States, Amy Winehouse has been granted a visa to enter the United States Of America. Unfortunately, due to the logistics involved and timing complications, Amy will not be travelling to the U.S. to perform at the Grammys in person."

"However, she will be performing via satellite broadcast as previously announced. Amy would like to thank all of those people, in particular the staff involved at the U.S. embassy in London, who have all worked so hard to expedite her application. She is looking forward to being a part of the 50th Annual Grammy Awards with her Sunday night performance and to going back to the US soon."
