English songstress Amy Winehouse performed in Brazil on 8 January. Footage has appeared from her live set—she plays a festive cover of “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” (no, not the Green Day track) and “Just Friends”, among others. Winehouse appears quite loose and, simultaneously, skillful, for the most part. She’s set to release a new album this year, too. Not a bad start, dear. It’s jumpy footage, but you get the idea.
