Following her big win at the Golden Globes on January 13, Adele is set to sing her hit single “Skyfall” at the Oscars.
Written by the British singer, “Skyfall” was created for the 2012 James Bond film of the same name. Reuters reports that this will be the first time Adele has performed in a year and the first time the song will be performed live.
The 24-year-old award-winning artist released a statement following the nomination announcement, saying, "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."
However, if fans are expecting an all-out live performance, they may be quickly disappointed as the Sun Times writer Bill Zwecker reports that Adele will perform a pre-recorded version of the song, similar to Beyonce's performance at the presidential inauguration of Barack Obama that is now under intense media scrutiny.
Yet a source tells Zwecker that the pre-recording is “merely a safety net for the show. Just in case something goes wrong, there will be that pre-recorded track to have for a fall-back option — but only if needed. Adele fully expects to perform the song live, and will have plenty of rehearsal time to prepare."
