Adele will be stepping into the world of cinema when she performs her Oscar-nominated song “Skyfall” at the Academy Awards on Feb. 24.
The British singer is nominated in the Best Original Song category for the theme song of the James Bond film Skyfall. The other nominees include "Suddenly" from Les Miserables, "Pi's Lullaby" from Life of Pi, "Everybody Needs A Best Friend," from Ted and "Before My Time" from Chasing Ice.
“It’s an honour to be nominated and terrifyingly wonderful to be singing in front of people who have captured my imagination over and over again,” said Adele in a statement. “It’s something I’ve never experienced and probably only ever will once!”
Adele’s performance won’t be the only trace of James Bond at the Oscars. Earlier this month, it was announced that a tribute will be made at the Academy Awards celebrating the 50 years of 007.
“We are very happy to include a special sequence on our show saluting the Bond films on their 50th birthday,” said Academy Awards producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron in a statement. “Starting with ‘Dr. No’ back in 1962, the 007 movies have become the longest-running motion picture franchise in history and a beloved global phenomenon.”
