Winehouse: Back, late and underwhelming

To be fair, the audiences booing Winehouse's comeback gig at a Portuguese festival only booed her late arrival, but when she did turn up, they weren't exactly thrilled then, either, reports the Associated Press:

Winehouse, wearing a short dress, appeared distracted during her performance. She paused to talk to members of her band, fiddled at length with her microphone, sucked throat candy and at one point dashed offstage but quickly returned.

She had cuts on her left arm, and her right hand was bandaged.

There was no encore. Although as she was third on the bill, that's not that surprising.
