UPDATED Singer Amy Winehouse was granted a visa to enter the U.S. but has decided to stay in London and go forward with her plan to perform at Sunday's Grammy Awards via satellite.
"Im raring to go and really excited to be performing at my first Grammy Awards!" Winehouse tells Usmagazine.com. "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." To prepare, she will be leaving rehab today but "will remain under full medical supervision and her treatment will continue as normal," her rep said.
Yesterday a rep confirmed she was denied her visa but has accepted the ruling and will be concentrating on her recovery. Amy Winehouse is up for six awards, including Record Of The Year, Song Of The Year and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for "Rehab," Album Of The Year and Best Pop Vocal Album for Back To Black, as well as Best New Artist.
