    Amy Winehouse Photo by: BAUER-GRIFFIN Amy Winehouse will not perform at the Grammy Awards this weekend because she's been refused permission to touch down on American soil, according to her publicist

    "The singer has been invited to appear at the event on Sunday after receiving an amazing six nominations for the prestigious awards," reads a statement issued by her publicist on Thursday. "Unfortunately, her application for a visa to enter the United States of America has been rejected at this time by the American Embassy in London.

    "Amy has been progressing well since entering a rehabilitation clinic two weeks ago, and although disappointed with the decision, has accepted the ruling and will be concentrating on her recovery," the statement continues. "Amy has been treated well and fairly by the Embassy staff and thanks everyone for their support in trying to make this happen. There will of course be other opportunities and she very much looks forward to visiting America in the near future."

    Good for the US Embassy. I would rather see her focus on getting clean. It is more important than her coming here to party at an awards show.

    No surprise there, that was a given.

    Good. I'm glad they didn't treat her differently to a non celeb.

    Wineheezy DENIED!
    Posted Feb 7th 2008 3:20PM by TMZ Staff
    Uncle Sam does not, not, not want Amy Winehouse! TMZ has learned the cracked-out singer will not perform at this year's Grammy Awards because her visa has been denied.

    After the decision came down, her publicist issued the following statement: "Amy has been progressing well since entering a rehabilitation clinic two weeks ago and although disappointed with the decision has accepted the ruling and will be concentrating on her recovery."

    No word on why the visa was denied, but perhaps this, this, this and getting caught on tape allegedly smoking crack might be to blame.

    Winehouse, who has been in and out of rehab, also canceled a slew of tour dates this year.


    So then maybe she won't be going to the Grammy's.

    I'm happy to hear she's ok with the ruling, your health is more important, and if you win, the awards will be there when you're ready.

    Maybe she can perform via satellite from rehab.

    This is great. A visit to the states likely would have thrown her recovery off course. Keep it up Amy! I'm rooting for you!

    Good for her if she really understands that she has
    to finish her rehab or else not getting a visa will
    be the least of her problems.
    Yeaaaaaaayyyyyyy, on the six nominations! Well deserved!
