Adele to perform Bond theme song 'Skyfall' at Oscars

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Singer-songwriter Adele will perform the theme song from the latest James Bond movie, "Skyfall," at the Oscars. It will be the first time she performs the song live and will also be her first U.S. performance since last year's Grammy Awards.

The song, which was written by Adele and Paul Epworth, is nominated for best original song.

"It's an honor to be nominated, and terrifyingly wonderful to be singing in front of people who have captured my imagination over and over again," Adele said in a statement. "It's something I've never experience and probably only ever will once."

Adele won a Golden Globe for the song earlier this month.
