Sultry singer Adele is set to perform the theme song to the latest James Bond movie “Skyfall” at the Oscars, which will be her first time performing in the U.S. since last year’s Grammy Awards.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences released a statement on Wednesday that said Adele will perform the Oscar-nominated song at the 85th annual Academy Awards on Feb. 24. Adele and producer Paul Epworth are also up for a nomination themselves in the best original song category for “Skyfall.”
This news doesn’t come as a surprise to many people in the industry considering Adele’s award show ubiquity. The singer who took the world by storm with her amazing voice has already won a Golden Globe for the “Skyfall” theme. The Oscars will be the first time Adele performs “Skyfall” in front of a live audience. She released a statement saying that she is absolutely honored to be singing to an audience that helped capture her imagination.
The Oscars will also present a tribute to James Bond, marking the 50th anniversary of the franchise.
