Nostalgic News: Amy Winehouse wins five Grammys seven years ago


Perhaps at the peak of her pop career, the 2008 Grammy Awards brought in five wins for Amy Winehouse off the back of her sophomore record, Back to Black.

Winehouse beat out other huge household names in pop music to claim some of the most prestigious awards on February 10th, seven years ago.

Nominated for Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Female Pop Vocal (all for hit single ‘Rehab) as well as Best New Artist and Pop Vocal Album (for Back to Black), Winehouse won across the board.

She thanked a number of industry names and family in her acceptance speech for Record of the Year, as well as “my Blake, my Blake incarcerated,” referring to her then-boyfriend, Blake Fielder-Civil.

Listen to ‘Rehab’ below.
