Oscars 2013: Adele announces 'Skyfall' performance at the Academy Awards

Adele has confirmed that she will be making her comeback performance at this year's Oscars.

The global superstar, who has taken time out of the industry to be with her newborn son, will be singing the Skyfall theme of the same name at the star-studded ceremony.




The singer's representatives posted on her fan's home page: "We are delighted to confirm that Adele will perform her Oscar-nominated song Skyfall at the 85th Academy Awards in Los Angeles on 24 February.

"Adele will perform Skyfall live for the first time anywhere during her exclusive Oscar show performance. It will also be Adele’s first public performance since the Grammys last year.

"Skyfall, written by Adele and Paul Epworth, is nominated in the Original Song category, the first Bond theme nominated for over three decades."



Thrilled to have been given a nod, the Someone Like You singer said: "It's an honour to be nominated and terrifyingly wonderful to be singing in front of people who have captured my imagination over and over again.

"It's something I've never experienced and probably only ever will once."

Breaking records once more, the singer picked up the Golden Globe's best original song prize last month. The new mother - who was joined by celeb pal Ayda Field at the ceremony - dedicated the award to her new child, whom she affectionately calls "Little Peanut".

As she collected her accolade, the songstress said: "Oh my God - honestly, I came out for a night out with my friend Ayda - we're new mums. We've literally come for a night out. "I was not expecting this. It's very strange to be here - thank you so much for letting me be a part of your world for a night.



She went on: "And this is for my boyfriend Simon who convinced me to do it and for my lovely son - thank you so much."
