Here are three things that made me tear up while watching Amy Winehouse’s performance and subsequent win for Record of the Year at this year’s Grammys.
1. Her raw, balls-to-the-wall rendition of her hit “Rehab”. DListed said she looked like she had the “recovering from heroin shakes”, but I thought she was powerful and amazing.
2. When she won her award, she looked dumbfounded as her entire band enveloped her in an celebratory embrace. Then she thanks her “mum and dad” who we all know have been doing their darndest to help Amy recover from her drug problems.
3. The shout-outs she gave to her incarcerated hubby, Blake Fielder-Civil. She says his name with such fury and passion!
That last point made me sort of start to see Amy and Blake as this cute couple, even though trouble seems to follow them (okay, so maybe they invite trouble along for the ride). They seem sort of like soul mates, albeit drug-addicted ones. Can’t they both get their act together and live happily ever after? Or am I being a lil’ Pollyanna? [DListed]
