American Amy Winehouse fans won't have a chance to see her at next month's Coachella festival, as she's been banned from performing in the U.S., but she's getting closer – the troubled singer will be a part of the 18th Annual St. Lucia Jazz festival in May.

Amy was denied the work visa in early March, in an experience that unfortunately isn't new to her. She was also denied entry into the U.S. last year before the Grammys and ended up appearing live via telecast.
