Adele Will Perform “Skyfall” at the Oscars

     January 23, 2013


Those worried that the upcoming 85th Annual Academy Awards ceremony might go by without a show-stopping moment from Adele can now rest easy.  It was announced today that the soulful Grammy hoarder will indeed perform the track “Skyfall” at the ceremony, which is nominated for Best Original Song for its inclusion in Skyfall.  This decision felt like a bit of a no-brainer.  The Oscars have been trying for years to find a way to draw a larger TV audience, and when you have the chance to get Adele onscreen belting out a fantastic Bond theme, you just don’t pass that up.

It’s unspecified whether the other nominated artists will perform their songs as well, but I wouldn’t mind seeing host Seth MacFarlane sing his nominated track from Ted.  The 85th Academy Awards will be held on February 24th.  Click here to revisit the full list of nominees, and hit the jump to take a listen to “Skyfall” once more.
