Adele to perform Skyfall theme at Oscars

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.

The theme tune to the latest James Bond film 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 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.
