Adele - The Oscars’ Bond Tribute: A Perfect Stage For Adele To Shine Again

Could anyone else have done Skyfall justice?

We don’t mean Daniel Craig as Bond; we’re talking Bond tunes, and perhaps no one could have trilled Skyfall with such a meaningful presence as Adele did. Considering 007’s trouble with the Academy – 2 awards out of 24 nominations in a 50 year history doesn’t paint a pretty picture for the British spy franchise – the anniversary treat of a Bond tribute at Februarys ceremony is a delightful surprise. And what better platform for Adele to make her much-awaited comeback. "We are very happy to include a special sequence on our show saluting the Bond films on their 50th birthday," said Oscar producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron. "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." They didn’t mention Adele, but it would fit, wouldn’t it?

One barrier could be the rumours that she’s booked up to sing at the Golden Globes. If she performs, she’ll be effectively ‘cup tied’ – little joke for any of you watching The F.A Cup today – and won’t be able to perform at The Oscars. The ceremony will be on Sunday, February 24, and we’ll be covering it from best casting to best film, so stay tuned.
