For some the juries still out
Amy Winehouse brought a mix of soul, funk, jazz, and ska beats to the Main Stage on a warm Saturday afternoon at the Isle of Wight Festival.
Although she is undoubtedly one of UK music's most talented vocalists, at times her album tracks failed to really grab the attention. However when songs such as 'Back to Black' and her cover of the Zutons hit 'Valerie' were played, plenty did sing with her.
There was enough energy throughout this performance to keep those who wanted to moving, with many in the crowd reacting to the excellently choreographed dancers turn backing singers who flanked her for the duration of the show.
Plenty of the casual observers were waiting to see biggest hit 'Rehab', and when it came it didn't disappoint, nor did the reaction from the fans.
She left the stage to a massive cheer, giving way to an aerobatics display from the Red Arrows.
Amy Winehouse would return to the Isle of Wight stage the following night to sing with the Rolling Stones. Her own fans were left satisfied after her performance on Saturday, those who know more about her from reading tabloid newspapers than listening to her music seemed still to be convinced.
