Winehouse Prepares for Grammy Satellite Performance

Amy Winehouse has apologized for missing the Grammy Awards, but has confirmed reports she'll perform at Sunday's ceremony via a satellite link-up.

U.S. embassy staff in London refused to grant Winehouse a visa to attend the Los Angeles event, because she was arrested and fined for drug possession in Norway in October.

The singer, who is nominated for six awards, will still entertain guests--but on a giant screen instead of in-person.

In a statement she says: "I'm raring to go and really excited to be performing at my first Grammy Awards. I'd like to thank everyone for their support over the last couple of weeks. I'm really sorry I can't be there but I appreciate that I'm being given a second chance via satellite."



Winehouse left the London rehab clinic where she is being treated for drug addiction on Friday to begin preparing for her performance.

Her spokesperson says, "To prepare for the performance, Amy will be leaving the rehabilitation clinic today where she has been a resident for two weeks.

"She is feeling great, looking healthy and looking forward to doing what she does best.

"She will remain under full medical supervision and her treatment will continue as normal."
