Troubled star Amy Winehouse nearly ruined her first live performance of this year (08) after she hit the stage an hour later than planned.
The Back To Black star made her live return on Saturday (31May08) at the Rock in Rio event in Lisbon, Portugal - but got off to a bad start after keeping eager fans waiting over an hour to see the star.
And, once the singer made the stage, she further infuriated fans by admitting she "should have cancelled" her set at the gig - because she was suffering from flu-like symptoms.
However, Winehouse struggled through the set - eating throat lozenges and dropping her microphone twice.
The star apologised to fans for her illness, telling fans: "My voice is not singing right and I can't even hold the microphone. But I wanted to be here so much."
And the 24-year-old didn't miss the opportunity to laugh off claims she is heading for a divorce from incarcerated husband Blake Fielder-Civil, telling the crowd he was "still the handsomest bloke you ever seen in your life".
