Adele Performing at Oscars
From the moment Adele received an Academy Award nomination in the Best Original Song category for her musical contribution to the new James Bond flick ‘Skyfall,’ people have been speculating about whether the British star will sing the song during the ceremony. Well, speculate no more: According to the Hollywood Reporter, Adele has been confirmed as a performer at this year’s Oscars, which are set for Feb. 24 in Los Angeles.
“It’s an honor to be nominated and terrifyingly wonderful to be singing in front of people who have captured my imagination over and over again,” Adele said in a statement. “It’s something I’ve never experienced and probably only ever will once!”
It will be Adele’s first public performance since giving birth to a son in October, and her first performance on U.S. television since last year’s Grammys. Adele won a Golden Globe for ‘Skyfall’ earlier this month, and while she was on hand to accept her hardware, she didn’t sing.
Academy Awards producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron add, “We have enormous respect for Adele’s unique artistry as a songwriter and a singer. She is currently one of the most successful recording artists in the world, and we believe that her performance of Skyfall will be an exciting Oscar moment for audiences watching at the Dolby Theater and on television screens around the world.”
