Amy Winehouse has been hailed for performing a polished and sober UK comeback show recently.
The troubled singer - who recently completed a short stint in rehab for problems with alcohol – played seven songs including ‘Rehab’, ‘Back to Black’ and ‘Valerie’ as well as new tracks for a small crowd at London's 100 Club last Sunday, her first show since a handful of dates in South America in January.
A source said: “Amy was on fantastic form. She looked and sounded great. It was like one of her old performances."
Winehouse also entertained the audience - which included her mother Janice, aunt Jane and boyfriend Reg Traviss - with a selection of jokes.
The source added: “She had the crowd laughing along with her gags, poking fun at herself and dad Mitch. She also threatened to flash her boobs and made a few jokes about her voluptuous look.”
Onlookers also believe her most recent rehab visit was a success as Winehouse didn’t touch a drop of alcohol all night.
The source added to The Sun newspaper: “Gone was the fragile, volatile and unpredictable Amy. She wasn’t knocking back vodka on stage – and she definitely hadn’t stopped at the off-licence on her way to the gig.”
Winehouse is reportedly planning some more intimate shows in preparation for an upcoming 12-date European tour which starts in Serbia on Saturday.
