    Amy Winehouse: 'I'm So Proud and Happy'

    The singer celebrates her five Grammy wins surrounded by friends and family
    By Courtney Rubin and Kate Stroup
    Amy Winehouse at the Grammys Photo by: Mike Blake / Reuters / Landov Amy Winehouse couldn't make it to Sunday's Grammy Awards in Los Angeles but that didn't stop her from stealing the show.

    The troubled 24-year-old singer won five awards including record of the year, song of the year and best new artist and rocked the crowd with a live-via-satellite rendition of "You Know I'm No Good" and "Rehab."

    After her emotional acceptance speech, the Back to Black singer addressed the crowd gathered in London at the Riverside Studios.

    "I can't believe I've won five awards," she told the intimate crowd, including her mother Janis, father Mitch and older brother Alex. "It's a shame I couldn't be there to accept the awards but I'm so proud and happy that I had the opportunity to perform for the Grammys in my hometown of London with my family and friends around me. Thank you, thank you, thank you!"

    Although the singer received last-minute visa approval to enter the United States, she could not make the trip to Los Angeles in time.

    Instead, Winehouse who checked into a north London rehab facility last month, after she was taped allegedly smoking crack made Sunday night a family affair.

    The Winehouse clan and several of Amy's friends enjoyed a late dinner at London's Riverbank Park Plaza hotel, before heading off to the performance at around 2:30 a.m.

    Although the concert location was supposed to be kept secret and admittance was strictly limited to friends and family crowds gathered outside the venue chanting "Amy! Amy! Amy!"

    Cuba Gooding, Jr. (who was in town for the BAFTA awards) was on hand to introduce her performance which, thanks to the time difference, kicked off at 3:41 a.m. London time.

    Winehouse is continuing with rehab and, according to a statement from her U.S. rep, is "following her treatment plan rigorously and making wonderful progress."

    She deserved every award she won and will hopefully keep on with her rehab. She's a great talent.

    I love her voice and pray she gets clean and stays clean. The local radio keeps playing pieces of her speech, "and my Blake, incarcerated".

    it was nice seeing her surrounded by her family and friends. i hope rehab works for her because it's horrible seeing someone self destruct. hopefully she realises how talented she is and doesn't continue to waste it. she's lucky she still has it, her performance was really good. And i loved when she said she was doing it for London, made me proud lol

    It looks and sounds like she's genuinely getting better. I hope she keeps it up.

    Her performance was great albeit the Blake shout-outs. I want to shake the Blake out of her!!!!!!!!!!!! It's so pathetic!
    This girl has so much talent and I felt sad listening to ther irony of her singing the Rehab song. Anyone else?

    The look on her face when she won was PRICELESS, I am so proud of her. She's doing so well and I thought her performance was so fantastic.

    I don't get her appeal. I couldn't even understand what she was singing.

    Hope she gets her act together though.
