Adele to dazzle the Oscars
British singer Adele would return to the stage next month after a year's absence to perform her Oscar-nominated song Skyfall at the 85th Academy Awards, the show's producers said.
The theme tune to the latest James Bond movie was written by Adele and Paul Epworth.
It is the first Bond theme to be nominated for the original song award at the Oscars since For Your Eyes Only in 1981.
The February 24 show will be Adele's first live performance since the Grammy Awards in April and the first time she will perform Skyfall live as she has kept a low profile since giving birth to a son in October.
"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," Adele, 24, said.
"It's something I've never experienced and probably only ever will once."
The singer was in Hollywood last month to pick up the Golden Globe for the best original song prize for Skyfall .
Adele's album, 21, scored the rare feat last month of topping all US album sales for the second straight year.
She records on XL, an independent record label.
