Revisiting Amy Winehouse’s best performances on the anniversary of her passing

Revisiting Amy Winehouse’s best performances on the anniversary of her passing

Amy Winehouse died on this day in 2011, aged just 27


It has been nine years since prodigy singer-songwriter Amy Winehouse passed away. Winehouse died on this day in 2011 in her home in London, leaving behind a legacy that was way beyond her 27 years.

Winehouse was an established jazz and soul singer, who smashed records for her success as a performer. Winehouse became the first British woman to win five Grammys at the 2008 awards, and won two Ivor Novello awards in the U.K.

In honour of the anniversary of her passing, we’re looking back at five of her most iconic performances.

2004 – ‘Stronger than Me’ at Glastonbury

In 2004, Winehouse was promoting her debut album Frank, a much more jazz-focused sound than her follow-up Back to Black. At the 2004 Glastonbury festival, Winehouse performed in a tiny venue, but stunned the audience with her vocals. It was obvious that she was destined for far bigger things.

2006 – ‘Tears Dry on their Own’ at Other Voices

Admittedly, we have a soft spot for any Irish performances that Amy gifted us with, but none more than this fabulous concert at the 2006 Other Voices festival in Dingle. Known for its intimate and showstopping performances, Amy’s version of Tears Dry on their Own did not disappoint.

2007 – ‘Love is a Losing Game’ at the Mercury Awards

Paired with just an acoustic guitar, Winehouse sang her hit Love is a Losing Game, and made a huge award show seem like an intimate performance.

2007 – ‘Rehab’ on Letterman

Winehouse made her U.S television debut on David Letterman’s Late Late Show with a flawless performance of her breakout song Rehab.

2008 – Grammys

At the 2008 Grammys, Winehouse was unable to travel to the U.S for the awards due to medical reasons. Instead, she performed remotely at London’s Riverside Studios at 3 a.m local time, giving one of her best performances. The standout moment of the night, though, was Winehouse’s reaction to winning Record of the Year.
