Should Amy Be Allowed to Go to the Grammys?

The Grammy Awards are this Sunday, and Amy Winehouse has been doing her best to get to the states in time. She was slated to perform a few months ago and has been nominated for six awards, but since then she's been in rehab and has been having trouble with her visa and she has been officially denied. Do you think Amy should be allowed to go to the Grammys?

she shouldve been allowed to go. its not going to make her feel too great missing out on a once in a life time opportunity. she did so well and she deserves it. it wouldnt hurt her recovery if she attended. it might now that she missed out.

i believe both things are important, I'm sure she is dying for be even more distinguished and show her music to the north american public. But a performance via satellite it's kinda good. Get well Amy!!

She's a singer, a good singer, of course she cans go to Grammys... She needs treatment, of course, but people gotta learn to separate private life and professional life....PERIOD!

i don't see why celebrities should be given special rights - she screwed up, got in trouble with the law and as a consequence she can't travel to the states - the same goes for everyone else in the world.

why is her visa denied? it's not like she's going to cause national alarm.

She has the right to go to the Grammys, but I think it would be better for her to stay put & work on her recovery.

Absolutely not and thank goodness someone had the sense to deny her visa.

Her visa's already been denied. So how would she be able to bypass that and be able to get to the grammy's?

Of course she'll win. The Grammies are about as relevant as Obama's armpit hair these days.

I'm sure she will win a few awards, So she should just accept via satelite and be proud of herself, getting cleaned up and getting awards!!!!

No exception just because she's nominated. She needs help just like Brittany needs help. Sadly they both don't think they do and they're loosing their talent and ability in the process.

She need to get herself free & clear of drugs and booze before she go anywhere, so I think it was completely fair to deny her visa.

Amy needs a total make over... Clothes, Hair, Husband everything. a fresh new her. Shes talented and she needs to show what she can do with her voice and her writing instead of worrying about selling records or performances to sell buy her husbands next 8 ball. Blake is a pig and she could do so much better. I think shed be clean and sober for good if she got rid of him.

Amy isn't being denied because she is a crackhead. She is being denied because she is a famous crackhead. The government let 19 Saudi terroists in with no qualms. A crackhead on the loose is the least of our worries.

I'm more worried about her health than whether she performs at the show. She will probably be nominated again the next time she makes an album if she is able to clean herself up.

I can't believe how hippocritical they are being! Aren't there plenty of ate-ups in Hollywood/plenty of drug users going to the Grammy's??? Gimme a break! Allow her to come under the supervision of a sponsor, at least! Maybe I'm making a big deal out of it, but I figure if she's talented enough to be a nominee, she should be allowed to go, regardless of her drug problem.

No, she should not be allowed an exception. Her celebrity status should not be due cause to override policies duly set forth controlling immigration standards. She, in effect, is viewed a criminal by the US Government. Now regardless of what she did, the law is as it is. I'm not exactly seeing why the hot mess that is Amy Winehouse should be exempt from these laws for entertainment purposes. As a side note, WHAT A CRACKHEAD! She's so messed up that she's now got an addiction to her addictions. After hearing the slew of information that has come across the Pond about her, I am thinking her talent is nothing even slightly exciting. Her success was just a fluke.

I would say a big NO. To me it seems her problems with drugs and alcohol are more than serious...but yet again I'm not a doctor, if they said it is ok, than maybe it's not that bad for her...

Now the news is that she will be performing via satellite and will accept an award if she wins by satellite. Which could be up to 4:00 am in London.

It's in the news that she was denied a visa so the discussion is over. I like her but she has too many problems. If you look at her photos from last year she has lost a lot of weight. She looks like a skeleton.

I hope this is the slap in the face that proves to her how damaging her problems are, not only to her health (which she obviously doesn't care much about) but to her career.
