Amy Winehouse Booed at Serbia, Cancels Other Appearances


Amy Winehouse was mercilessly booed at her performance in Serbia Saturday night. The local paper even called it the “worst in the history of Belgrade.”

Her rep later on announces the cancellation of her appearances later this week at festivals in Turkey and Greece as she “cannot perform to the best of her ability.”

Winehouse seemed too drunk to put on a decent show on Saturday. In one instance, as Winehouse was supposed to sing, she was so bewildered, one of her background singers comes over to sing the song for her.

In her 90 minute performance at Belgrade’s Fortress festival, many of the 20,000 disappointed viewers walked out whereas those who stayed booed and whistled as Winehouse tried to hit the right notes. Audience members, some even coming from neighbouring countries, called the performance a “scandal” and a “disaster.”

Winehouse apologised for cancelling her appearances at the Kucuk Ciftlik Park festival in Istanbul and the Ejekt festival in Athens. According to her spokesman: “Despite feeling sure that she wanted to fulfil these commitments, she has agreed with management that she cannot perform to the best of her ability and will return home… She would like to apologise to fans expecting to see her at the shows but feels that this is the right thing to do.”

Winehouse, who is publicly known to be battling drug and alcohol addition, has reportedly ended an alcohol rehabilitation program in London two weeks ago.
