Last year Adele cleaned up at the Grammys for her album 21. It’s an amazing album and so well deserving off all the success it has enjoyed. So last weekend Adele added another little statue to her collection, that being a Golden Globe for her song Skyfall. This was her first appearance on the red carpet and awards show since the birth of her son (Angelo seems to be his name). I recall her saying she was just out on a girls night and not expecting to win an award. It was yet another great moment for the star who remarked, “Thank you so much for letting me be apart of your night”.
Well the song has been nominated for an Academy Award® too. She’s clearly the favourite to win in the Original Song category come the 24th of February. It gets better. In celebration of fifty years of Bond and the franchise, it has just been announced by the Academy that she will be performing at this year’s awards. This will be her first television performance since last year’s Grammys®.
On the news, the star 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,” said Adele. “It’s something I’ve never experienced and probably only ever will once!”
The producers for the 85th Academy Awards® said,”We have enormous respect for Adele’s unique artistry as a songwriter and a singer,” said Craig Zadan and Neil Meron. “She is currently one of the most successful recording artists in the world, and we believe that her performance of ‘Skyfall’ will be an exciting Oscar moment for audiences watching at the Dolby Theatre™ and on television screens around the world.”
The awards take place on the 24th of February. I’ll sadly be on this side of the globe again, so I’ll be up blogging and tweeting through the night. More on the Oscars to come soon.
