Universal Music, Amy's label, have given their full support on the singer despite her stint in rehab earlier this month for her drug problems. She was also lauded to be the possible performer in the event that takes place on February 10.

On contrary to Universal statement that Amy still intends to attend the event, Mitch Winehouse released a statement to Mirror.co.uk, saying "I'm not sure the Grammys are going to happen. I don't want her to go - I think it might be a bit too soon for her."

Mitch also added that Amy is "not well" but "doing OK" because she is getting a good treatment at the unspecified London rehab.

Amy is nominated for six categories at the 50th Grammys, including Record of the Year and Album of the Year for '' and Best New Artist.
