  • Adele will perform the James Bond theme “Skyfall” at the Oscars, her first US performance since last year's Grammy Awards.

Adele will perform the James Bond theme Skyfall at the Oscars, her first US performance since last year’s Grammy Awards.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences said Wednesday that Adele will sing the Oscar-nominated song at the 85th annual Academy Awards on February 24. She and producer Paul Epworth are nominated for best original song for Skyfall.

The announcement isn’t much of a surprise considering Adele’s award show ubiquity. She recently won a Golden Globe for the Bond theme.

Adele hasn’t previously sung Skyfall live for an audience. She says in a statement that she’s honoured to be singing in front of people who’ve captured her imagination. The Oscars will also present a tribute to James Bond, marking the 50th anniversary of the franchise.
