It is confirmed that Adele will perform her Oscar-nominated theme song from Skyfall at the upcoming Oscars.
The Academy's official tweet reads, “We’re so excited to have Adele perform Skyfall on this year’s #Oscars, we made a gallery dedicated to Bond Theme Songs.” This will be part of a celebration for James Bond’s 50th anniversary, reports the BBC.
“Skyfall” has been nominated for the Best Original Song Oscar. It has already won the Best Original Song at the Golden Globes, where Adele appeared for the first time after her pregnancy. According to Hollywood Reporter, the performance in the Academy Awards will be her first U.S. TV performance since the Grammys last year.
Talking about the nomination, Adele said, “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.”
The song “Skyfall," written by Adele and Paul Epworth, is the first Bond theme song ever to reach Billboard’s Top 10 chart. According to Box Office Mojo, the movie Skyfall has grossed over $300 million worldwide.
