Amy Winehouse Makes Debut DJ Appearance, but Does Not DJ

As we posted earlier in the week, Amy Winehouse was scheduled to have her DJ debut.

The venue was packed out to see the star, who was meant to be taking part in a DJ-battle against DJ Bioux but actually just swayed behind the decks to 60s tunes while another DJ spinned tunes for her.

Anna, who was watching, said: "It was a really good atmosphere but she didn't get on the decks at all.

"It was just the other guy. He was good, so good but Amy didn't start DJing at all.

"It was a really good environment though and although Amy wasn't DJing, her being there gave a point to the night so it was really good. I'd go back."

Amy didn't look happy throughout the night but she did remind the crowd of her loyalty to her husband by wearing a heart-shaped badge in her hair with the name Blake on display.

Blake Fielder-Civil faces up to five years in jail after pleading guilty to GBH and interfering in a police case.

He's sentenced on 21 July.

She was also surrounded by people taking photos of her.

Some fans felt sorry for her. One said: "I thought she was fantastic but it's just a bit sad that Amy was crowded by all the photographers."

Amy did seem to pick the music though with funky 60s tunes stirring up the crowd, tunes that were meant to have influenced her own music.

Some fans were expecting more of her though.

Another fan said: "She's OK but we thought she was going to sing but she didn't sing.

"She DJd, which wasn't really what we expected but it was alright."


Towards the end of the night the crowd danced along to tracks including The Cure's 'Love Cats', Dexys Midnight Runners' 'Geno', The Supremes' 'You Can't Hurry Love' and The Specials' 'A Message To You Rudy'.

The pair stopped DJing just before 1.15am and hugged while the crowd cheered and chanted for "one more".

The duo then played one final track, Desmond Dekker's 'You Can Get It If you Really Want', before Winehouse's two minders cleared a path and the singer headed backstage.
