WINEHOUSE MAY GO TO BALL

According to reports, Amy Winehouse has met with officials at the US Embassy to discuss obtaining a visa, fuelling speculation that the singer will make it to the Grammys on Sunday after all.

A spokesman denied that a decision had been made about her appearance at the awards show, however, saying that the embassy visit had been planned a while ago. "The appointment at the US Embassy was made some time ago and was part of process for obtaining a visa", he explained, "Amy was accompanied by a nurse as the appointment was under supervision. She has not left rehab and remains under the care of the clinic".

Winehouse arrived at the embassy accompanied by her dad Mitch and a nurse from the Capio Nightingale clinic, where she is currently undergoing treatment for her drug addiction. It is her drugs record - specifically her arrest and fine for possessing cannabis whilst in Norway in October - that may complicate her visa request.

On a happier note, reports suggest that she was looking healthier as she made her way to the embassy, which can only be a good thing.
