Singer Amy Winehouse Dead at 27

Amy WinehouseBefore Amy Winehouse became famous for her inimitable voice and infamous for her hard-partying ways, she tried her hand at TV acting.

The singer, who was found dead in her London home this morning at the age of 27, appeared on Britain's comedy 'The Fast Show' in 1997. She didn't say much, and she didn't sing at all, but the video after the jump shows a very young Winehouse, pre-beehive, doing her best to keep a straight face as someone else belted out 'Cabaret.'

Beyond her many musical accomplishments and providing soundtacks to some huge movies and TV shows, Winehouse's only other TV appearances include the usual stops for performers, as well as a BBC documentary series called 'Mischief' and an E! True Hollywood Story on her tumultuous life.

Watch this clip from 'The Fast Show' before she was famous, and tell us: Will Amy Winehouse be missed?

Just another drug addict with no talent but a one hit to her memory gone.

Ah, now this is the kind of pointless, heartless drivel of a post I would expect when you mix one part Ghost of Steve Case with one part Arianna "Murdoch on the Left" Huffington. Kudos!

Mind you, there are many witty ways to bring up how much of a train wreck this girl was - asking if she will be missed is not one of them. I guess this is what happens when you amputate one's humanity an replace it with an iPad and lip gloss.

seriously? will she be missed? i'm sure that her friends and family will have something to say about that. love her or hate her, or don't care at all, but don't ask if she will be missed, that is just tacky and rude.

the only thing surprising about this is that it didn't happen sooner.

Seems like 27 is the age of self destruction with singers.
