She wasn't there to receive her award, but in a video she made a joke at the expense of last year's awards when her Best Album acceptance speech was cut short.

He says he had to get creative to report from the show because he didn't have media credentials.

British singer Adele will return to the stage next month after a year absence to perform her Oscar-nominated song "Skyfall" at the 85th Academy Awards, the show's producers said today.

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 show, on February 24th, will be Adele's first live performance since the Grammy Awards last April and the first time she will perform "Skyfall" live.
"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.
