The Mirror amended their headline, (Amy booed off stage), to add:"after technical problems".

"A spokesperson for Amy said: "Amy had technical problems and couldn't hear herself during the gig. One of her in-ear monitors wasn't working properly."

That makes no sense, because she's never had anything in her ear before. But in this video it sounds like a bad sound system - the music is pulsing/stuttering while the narrator's voice sounds smooth and even.

Edit: lol Didi posted the Mirror link; Phil's article confirms that the sound system was fucked up

That's just bullshit.

How mean can people be to shine green lights in her eyes?

The Rehab video makes me sad, so sad. You can see that she just wants to go off stage and she has a camera in front of her and people are looking for things she does wrong on stage. I think that she knows what's going on. No confidence - of course! She seems to be sooo nervous, just doesn't want to be there.

Youtube comment on Rehab vid:

This was her worst number - she clearly hated singing it. It was much better overall than this - moments of sheer brilliance. I was right at the front and it sounded much better.

She doesn't look drunk or high and it seems like she's been clean for awhile now so I'm not jumping on that everytime she isn't perfect.

When she was singing, she sounds good but from being familiar with other acts, if you can't hear yourself, you're fucked and there's only so much you can do. Thats the look when something is wrong and you can't fix it there.

one article brought up another point :

"Knock knock!!! Is everyone forgetting that this is still Dubai? Amy must have been so disappointed to see the long list of “dont’s” before she actually signed the contract,,,. A Big Bang on her head reminder her that she can’t really continue with her norms here. That’s a true simple fact. I can merely think of any other performers who would dare to rock this city, but I was certain that Amy Winehouse is definitely excluded in the list."

I think (as I mentioned in the video section) that Dubai is not a good place to perform especially for amy. I think most assholes are going to her show just to down her and be nasty. i am so mad at the audience, not amy. Ppl have no respect for her. One person tweeted that she had "crack itch"---we know what amy looks like when she was on crack...and there is NO WAY IN HELL that she is on that shit anymore. Some people just go out with opinions already formed is what I think...

clearly she couldn't hear herself either...i mean i can't even hear her...i think she became a nervous wreck b.c she is being watched for perfection since it is her "comeback" and she knows she cant sound her best if she cant hear

There are plenty of stage monitors in that video. I kinda think she could hear just fine.

Watching videos, she did look like she didn't wanna be there at all. I wonder what all the issues were.

She definitely wasn't on anything but she was there

The WORST THING is that people shone green lights in her eyes while she was performing rehab. Of course she looked down and had no respect for the audience.

With the "i said do you wanna hear the band... that's what I thought", you can tell she's pissed

i think it's "do you wanna meet the band". she said that at the brazil gigs before introducing the band members. internet is saying she says "do you wanna BE IN the band"!
wish there was video of the opening! curious as to how the booing started! nice that people were cheering at the end!
