Adele - Adele Oscar Appearance Confirmed; Star Will Sing 'Skyfall'

Whilst the rest of the Skyfall cast and crew are licking their wounds after yet again seeing a James Bond film snubbed by the Oscars, Adele is no doubt starting to work out what to wear to the extravaganza as it’s just been confirmed that she will be performing at the ceremony on February 24, to sing the theme from the film.

A huge critical and commercial response on both sides of the Atlantic led to many to believe that this might finally be the year that the Oscars would finally welcome Bond into the fold – the franchise has only ever been nominated in the minor categories – but the film missed out on all major acting and directing categories again. This means that the decision by the Academy to honor the series at the awards, for its 50th anniversary, looks like little more than a sop. However Adele won’t be complaining, as she’ll get a chance to perform in front of millions on millions watching globally.

The Academy producers Craig Zadan and Neil Moron confirmed her appearance, saying in a statement “She is currently one of the most successful recording artists in the world, and we believe that her performance of Skyfall will be an exciting Oscar moment for audiences watching at the Dolby Theatre and on television screens around the world.” Adele could well walk away with an Oscar for Best Original Song too.
