Striding confidentially on stage at Ireland's Oxegen festival just minutes past her scheduled start time, Amy Winehouse looked ready to rock the stage. The beehived-singer put aside any personal issues at the weekend to give fans a taste of her five Grammy-worth talent at two of the summer's biggest Celtic festivals.

On Saturday, the arena erupted at the open event near Dublin as Amy launched into a near-flawless 50-minute set of her classics - including Back to Back and Rehab. And there was a special mention for hr incarcerated husband Blake Fielder-Civil when she got to Wake Up Alone. "This one's for Blakey," she said. "He's out in nine days."

Her husband was clearly on her mind over the weekend - she made the same dedication the following day during her set at Scotland's T in the Park festival. There it was a similar story as, strutting around the stage in a minuscule pair of red shorts and a bolero style leather jacket, Amy entertained one of the biggest crowds of the weekend.

Twelve months ago fans were disappointed when the jazz chanteuse pulled out of the Scottish music event. This year all that was forgotten, though, as she sparked a sing-a-long with Tears Dry On their Own before finishing her 14-song set with a storming version of Valerie.
