Adele has confirmed that she will be performing her nominated song “Skyfall” at the Oscars next month.
The Daily Mail says this will be the superstar’s comeback performance after the birth of her son in October.
“Skyfall,” the theme to the latest James Bond movie, is nominated for an Academy Award in the Original Song category. Adele co-wrote the tune with Paul Epworth and has expressed her enthusiasm over the recognition.
“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. It’s something I’ve never experienced, and probably only ever will once!" she said in a statement.
Craig Zadan and Neil Meron are this year’s producers of the Academy Awards. They praised Adele’s “unique artistry” and called her one of the current most successful recording artists in the world.
The Associated Press reports Adele’s performance will be part of a showcase during the awards ceremony to honor 50 years of the James Bond series, making it the longest running movie franchise in history.
