Adele to perform Skyfall at Oscars

Adele will perform Skyfall at the Oscars

Adele will perform her hit Bond theme Skyfall at this year's Oscars - her first live performance since last year's Grammy Awards.

The performance, in Los Angeles on February 24, will be the first time she has sung the song live on stage.

Skyfall is in the running for the best original song award at this year's Oscars and is the first Bond song nominated since For Your Eyes Only in 1981.

She 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."

Adele was in Hollywood last month to pick up the Golden Globe for the best original song prize.

The singer - who attended the ceremony with Robbie Williams' wife Ayda Field - has kept a low profile since she gave birth in October. She and boyfriend Simon Konecki have still to reveal the name of their son, although she took the opportunity to dedicate the award to him.

As she collected her award, Adele gushed: "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."

Rebelling against outmoded conventions is liberating. Usually, you're comfortable with tradition. In this situation, you realise the old ways are a liability. Stuffy rules and regulations are stopping a large amount of people from accessing resources and services. It's up to you to sound the alarm. When the powers that be realise you mean business, they'll work hard to update the regulations. You'll make several new friends after getting involved with this cause.More
