The people have spoken: That's enough, Amy Winehouse.
The British singer arrived about an hour late to her concert in Belgrade, Serbia, only to fumble through her lyrics and get booed off the stage. Subsequently, her rep told CNN that the next two tour dates of her 12-stop European tour have been canceled.
In a statement to EW.com, Winehouse's publicist said, "She would like to apologize to fans expecting to see her at the shows, but feels that this is the right thing to do."
Winehouse joins the ranks of stars like Ashlee Simpson and Kanye West, who audiences love to hate. Here are some of the top-ranking failures... or perhaps the best boos:
Simpson's shrieking - er, singing - at the 2005 Orange Bowl halftime show didn't exactly get a warm reception. As her performance came to a close, Simpson was overwhelmed with boos rather than applause.
Apparently Nickelback isn't very popular in Portugal - at least, not at the band's 2009 show where concert-goers supplemented vocal negativity by pelting the performers with rocks and wine bottles.
Following his infamous interruption Of Taylor Swift at the Video Music Awards in 2010, West received a cruel welcome at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Not only did West get booed, but the crowds shouted Swift's name as well.
Germany just wasn't Usher's jam. The R&B singer postponed his performance, telling the Berlin audience at a 2011 concert that he wasn't feeling well. And at his rescheduled show the next night, he delivered a less than stellar presentation, resulting in boos. He walked off the stage and his show was cut short.
Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino
The definition of a roast implies somebody's going to get humiliated, but when "Jersey Shore" personality Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino started in on Donald Trump, the audience was outraged.
She's an acclaimed performer, but when the songstress and husband Jay-Z walked the red carpet at the 2011 Met Gala in New York, the crowd was less than enthused.
How ironic that the star who coined the hashtag #winning garnered some of the biggest boos of all-time at his stop in Detroit.
