Ten years ago today (27OCT16) Amy Winehouse released her second album Back to Black, which was to become her final record following her untimely death in 2011. The follow-up to her debut Frank was a critical and commercial success around the world, making singer-songwriter Winehouse a household name and thrusting her into the limelight. It topped the charts in the star's native Britain and reached number two in the U.S. Lead single Rehab became her only top 10 hit in America. The hugely personal album, produced by Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi, also spawned tracks You Know I'm No Good, Back to Black, Tears Dry on Their Own and Love Is a Losing Game. In 2008 it won Best Pop Vocal Album at the Grammy Awards and Rehab was named Record of the Year and Song of the Year. She won five of her six nominations but was unable to attend and perform at the ceremony as her visa was denied while she was seeking treatment for drug addiction. Sales of Back to Black surged after her death, aged 27, with the album even returning to the number one in some European countries. As of late 2015, it had sold 3.59 million copies in the U.K., making it the 13th best-selling album of all time in the country. ** Amy Winehouse performs at Lollapalooza Featuring: Amy Winehouse performs at Lollapalooza Where: Lollapalooza, Illinois, United States When: 05 Aug 2007

Pitiful Natalie Cole Tribute At The Grammys Incites Family's Anger


Natalie Cole Grammy Awards

This year's 'In Memoriam' segment of the Grammy Awards was a particularly emotional one this year, as tributes were held for some of the biggest legends of the music industry including David Bowie, Maurice White and Lemmy Kilmister. However, the family of Natalie Cole have expressed their outrage at this singer's under-representation.

Natalie ColeNatalie Cole only got a brief mention at the 2016 Grammys

Cole died of heart failure at the age of 65 on New Year's Eve after a successful R&B career following in the footsteps of her father Nat King Cole. She's the recipient of nine Grammy awards and a number of lifetime achievement awards with 6 number one albums and a number of R&B hits under her belt. But despite this, her recognition at the 2016 Grammys was minimal to say the least with just a short clip of her song 'Unforgettable' shown at the event.

The 'Fashion Police' host looked seriously hot in a Christian Siriano long-sleeved, fishtail gown on Sunday (February 8th 2015), but it seems it may have clung to all the wrong places judging by the response it got over Twitter, where several eagle-eyed observers quizzed her on whether or not she was expecting a baby.

Metallica Lang Lang Grammy Awards

Metallica teamed up with the phenomenally talented Chinese pianist Lang Lang at the 56th annual Grammy Awards on Sunday (January 26, 2013). It was a strange collaboration on paper, though offered a brooding intensity to the band's classic song One. Check out Metallica and Lang Lang.

Taylor Swift. Grammys 2014. FUNNIEST. VIDEO. EVER.


Taylor Swift Grammy Awards

Taylor Swift's Grammys 2014 probably wasn't one for her scrapbook. The country-pop star failed to land the award for best country album - losing out to Kacey Musgrave's Same Trailer Different Park - and was then spotted mistakenly half-celebrating a win in the Best Album category before realising the successful recipient was actually RRRRRandom Access Memories by Daft Punk and not RRRRRed, but Taylor Swift.

Quite why young Swifty thought she'd won the evening's top award after her record failed to win in its genre is beyond us, though then again, the surprise on her and her various label executives' faces said it all.
