Amy Winehouse was booed and jeered at a gig in Serbian capital Belgrade last night (June 18) after appearing to be too drunk to sing.

Scroll down and click below to see fan footage of notably shambolic versions of 'Valerie', 'Back To Black' and 'Love Is A Losing Game' at the city's Kalemegdan Park.

The singer spent much of the gig mumbling the words to her songs and stumbling around the stage, which she often left altogether. At one point she threw her microphone to the floor, reports BBC News.

Her antics saw her frequently jeered by the 20,000-strong crowd, who had paid up to €45 (£40) to attend the show.

Hotel staff on the 12-date European tour have apparently been ordered to remove alcohol from her room.

The jaunt is due to continue at Istanbul's Kucuk Ciftlik Park in Turkey on Monday (20), before moving on to festival dates in Greece, Spain and Italy.

Last weekend (12), Winehouse was reported to have been uncharacteristically sober and on "fantastic form" at a secret comeback show at London's 100 Club.

The singer checked into The Priory clinic to seek treatment for drug and alcohol addiction last month.
