i have spoken to several folks visiting here from Brazil who say her performances have been met with scorn by the Brazilian press.
I think some people will always percieve her to be a fuck up based on her past, and no matter what you say to them is going to change their minds.
Some just aren't into second chances, particularly when it comes to someone who had had it all.
It's just the way some people are, and why waste your breath arguing. We know better

I've seen a million of these crappy cell phone videos. She looks beautiful and sounds a million times better than recently yet... there's something that bugs me a lot. She seems to go off-key pretty often, specially when she tries to improvise or sing a different melody. I don't really get the reason and can't think of a particular one. She clearly has good sound because she's perfectly on tune most of the time but then she tries to do something different and it simply doesn't work. I'm sorry I'm not a blind (or deaf one for that matter) fan whish I were. The musician in me can't help being a tiny bit bitchy either.

She has a lot to make up for but this time I'm more optimistic than ever.

Exactly Pablo. She ain't there yet, but I do feel hopeful. And if she drops any more lyrics I'm gonna go nuts. She has been away from the stage and from herself for a bit, so as far as jumping in and getting her feet wet after all this time I do applaud the effort. And wish her the very best.
I mean, who else would dig up a Little Anthony and The Imperials tune and perform it in concert. I love her for that!!

Indeed Kev! She couldn't have chosen better tracks to cover. I was kinda afraid she'd have changed direction in all this time but her selection was simply perfect. BBD is dreamy and so is IOLI.

Why would it? She's been "back" many times before. IMO, it's not a success unless she can keep it up.

And yes, as you all know, I'm one of those infamous cynics. Throw dirt at me.


Baby steps, baby steps, turning into monumental leaps. Winehouse needs to increase what is working, and don't stop. She sounded great, her voice has gotten deeper and hoarser. I think she's working with what she has and it's sounding great. Keep it up, Winehouse!

Marisa, I'd stand side by side with you in the pelting of the dirt.

So what's the verdict on the vocal damage?

If she doesn't improvise that brilliantly, then I'll take it as a clue that she's understandably still very much affected by anxiousness about failing, though she's clearly very much succeeding. I'm sure that, in time, she'll be able to let go of her anxieties more, in favour of freedom of performance. I'm not a blind or a deaf fan, mind, but I'm admittedly choosing not to let minor negative details affect my enjoyment of her comeback too much either.

Amy Winehouse died, and she's taken a part of my soul with her. May that part be the love that I felt for her, and may the love that I still feel for her be the undying part of us both.

Boozing and smoking probably did some damage to Winehouse's vocal chords. She's always had a contralto voice, I don't think she can hit those high notes any more. When Winehouse has her shit together, she can create magic. IMHO, she wasn't perfect, but she's a hell of a lot better than her previous performances, particular the Russian Debacle. B-)

It's amazing to me that Amy's on track to finishing 5 concerts in 1 week. Has she ever done so many gigs in a week before? I know she had a long time to prepare, and she's being paid a lot to do it, but it still is hard to believe that it is actually happening. Another day, another Amy concert! And no cringing!

^Powerful performance, good sound, compared to most other clips, and with amazing picture quality. The breeze in her hair makes the gig look as live as live can get, with Amy looking more lively than ever. The autolinked version of Boulevard is true, unadulterated Amy in all respects as well (I won't give away the delightful surprise at the end). She's looking, moving and sounding better than ever, as far as I'm concerned. I'm very impressed, I'm very proud of her, and I'm very happy.:D

She probably should stop smoking cigarettes and weed and incessant drinking won't help either.
