Confirmed: Adele To Perform At Oscars 2013

Published: Wednesday 23rd Jan 2013 by Sam

Adele may be on a musical hiatus as she adapts to life as a mother, but that hasn’t stopped the performance requests from flowing in.

For, after much ado about whether the Londoner would take to the stage at the Golden Globes or the Oscars this year, it has been confirmed that the 24 year old will perform at the latter on February 24th.

Details after the jump…

Crowing almost two years at the top, the singer will perform ‘Skyfall’ at the 85th Annual Academy Awards in honor of the blockbuster James Bond movie of the same name. The song, which hit top ten on many a global singles tally last Fall, is nominated in the Best Original Song category – and is the first “Bond song” to do so since 1981.

Speaking on both her performance and nomination, 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!”

– Via Adele/XL Recordings

*******

With the Grammy’s and Super Bowl looming too, next month is shaping up to be a great one for music fans. Needless to say, we can’t wait to see Adele shut it down!

Pending then, listen to ‘Skyfall’ below…

    • MISHKA January 23, 2013

      Aretha is a hater. “Got 2 be real” is about to get real in here!

      She didn’t show up at Whitney’s funeral, something nasty is up with this lady. She’s worried Queen Bey will top her Grammy record and we all know it’s bound to happen.

      • truth(slayer of icki funky ass stans B****!!) January 23, 2013

        what did she say? i heard she said Bey did great…

    • Yeah I Said it January 23, 2013

  4. mr.m January 23, 2013

    I do like Adele .. She’s so talented
    BUT she’s probably the most overrated artist of all time

    • truth(slayer of icki funky ass stans B****!!) January 23, 2013

      What did she say? I heard she said Bey did good.

    • THE WHITNEY NAVY(WHITNEY AND RIHANNA)!!! January 23, 2013

      SHE IS WHITE AND SINGS WITH ONE TONE IN ALL HER SONGS!!! SHE IS VERY OVERRATED AS HELL AND NOT PRETTY EITHER!!

  5. Kouture January 23, 2013

    I like Adele, but like the person above me said…she is sooooooooooo overrated. I prefer emeli sande because her voice is more colorful.

    • REL January 23, 2013

      LOL i wouldnt dare call ADELE overrated. that’s blasphemy. her songwriting ability alone is sensational. However, I love Emeli Sande as well. just saw her in concert a couple weeks ago in ATL…..flawless!

      To me, ADELE, EMELI SANDE, and FLORENCE WELCH can do no wrong whatsoever. ADELE is the only one i havent seen live…and that’s because of her throat issue.

      Sad that EMELI didnt get not ONE GRAMMY nom. now that’s blasphemy!

  6. FentySoSnatched January 23, 2013

    YAY YAY YAY. a LIVE singer.

    • Yeah I Said it January 23, 2013

      And you are Rihanna stan.

      • MC FAN January 23, 2013

        lol 😉 love you too sweetie

  8. F****** Hairy (Lana & Gaga schoolin’ h***) January 23, 2013

    Oh, she’s performing “Skyfall”. I thought she was performing something new. I like Adele but the b**** is overexposed.

  9. JJFan1814 January 23, 2013

    Of course the haters would say she’s over exposed…24+ million albums sold with “21”….Is that y’all’s only argument, that she’s over exposed?????

    She can retire today and still live with records that are unlikely to be broken.

  10. truth(slayer of icki funky ass stans B****!!) January 23, 2013

    Does anyone really care? Ija

    • THE WHITNEY NAVY(WHITNEY AND RIHANNA)!!! January 23, 2013

      NOPE NOT ME AND OVERRATED AS F***!! MARSHA AMBROSA WILL OUTSING THIS B**** BUT SHE CANT GET PLATINUM STATUS!! F*** FAT PALE UGLY ADELE

      • F****** Hairy (Lana & Gaga schoolin’ h***) January 23, 2013

        Thats because Adele is white. If she was black then she would be struggling to sell too. TBH I dont even think she will ever be able to do what she did with “21” ever again.
        That username is blasphemous though girl. Rihanna and Whitney used in the same line?

  11. MISHKA January 23, 2013

    Sam,

    I have to give you MAJOR props for not falling *yet* for the so-called controversy.

    Seeing Perez Hilton and the Trenidad blogger getting their life out of this makes me sick to my stomach.

    And Haterate Franklin is doing the most with it too.

    People wish upon a star Beyonce would have a mishap, they wish for their liiiife she would fail at something.

    Until she turns white, or ugly, or into a crackhead, or divorced, we’ll never see the end of this hate. Never. i wish she would just quit the business.

    As for Adele, well, she stuck in LA since the golden globes and she has the Oscar on lock, so it only makes perfect sense she’s performing.

    • THE WHITNEY NAVY(WHITNEY AND RIHANNA)!!! January 23, 2013

      ARETHA IS A LEGEND AND ICON BEYONCE WILL NEVER!!!

  12. boopboop January 23, 2013

    not a adele fan but i bet she wont lipsync HER performance and then try to do damage control AFTER being exposed as a FRAUD!

    • boopboop January 23, 2013

      p.s. adele didnt fake a pregnancy either! even if 21 had flopped she wouldnt of been so desperate for attention to fake being pregnant! i hope beysafraud’s fake pregnancy gets exposed on the mainstream blogs this year!

      • Nikita January 23, 2013

        The RUMOR is tired! It hasnt been exposed cos its b*******

  13. soulmusiclover January 23, 2013

    her name should be SLAYDELE seriously!! my girl stays slaying everyone from her couch! haha! i hope she wins!!!

  14. cake like lady gaga January 23, 2013

    Argggggg, this pig annoys The F*** outta me. I can’t take you seriously if you bought 21.

    And what does this pig call her fans? Elephants maybe? I’m surprised she hasn’t eaten her piglet yet.

    I can’t

    • OK January 23, 2013

      No need to hate because 21 trounced Born This Way in album sales. It happens, and Gaga still managed to survive, and I think ARTPOP will do fine even if 21 continues to sell well into 2013. I like Gaga, and would rather she succeed in spite of having stiff competition instead of slaying just because there’s no one else out at the time.

    • Touché January 23, 2013

      -_- Really? The fat jokes are getting old.

  15. Beyonce is a fraud, fake, who steals from others to further her own career January 23, 2013

    ADELE IS A REAL ARTIST… SHE’D NEVER LIP SYNC N TRY TO FOOL THE PUBLIC. SMH

    • cake like lady gaga January 23, 2013

      The life I have gotten from your username though 😀

      • Beyonce America’s Biggest Scammer Of 21st Century January 23, 2013

        tell them the truth…

  16. NavyPrince January 23, 2013

    why do you always have to hate on rihanna?

  17. BEYONCE4LIFE January 23, 2013

    The queen is gonna be snatching some wigs come february. When will your fave?…never, cause R**** sounds like some booty

  18. REL January 23, 2013

    LET’S HOPE THE OSCARS DONT PULL A FAST ONE, THEY GOT JANET JACKSON TO SING HER NOMINATED “AGAIN” BUT DIDNT WIN!

    HOWEVER, WHITNEY AND MARIAH PERFORMED AND THE SONG WON (WHEN YOU BELIEVE)

  19. Jer January 23, 2013

    Itll be nice to see a live performance this February

    • Nikita January 23, 2013

    • soulmusiclover January 23, 2013

      yessssssss!!! she slays as usual!

  21. together again (beyonce’s weave) January 23, 2013

    Leave the queen bey alone. Y’all know she didn’t lip sync, she sang live over a pre record you can clearly see the veins in her neck plus if you listen to the raw video footage you can hear both her live vocals and the back track! The marine woman is also back paddling on her claims too. The band didn’t play live but bey did sing LIVE embiciles (the basic r**** stans who are reveling in this rumour) yes I stopped stanning for the w**** after the stay cover had fistopher on it!

  22. Nikita January 23, 2013

    Good for her!

  23. Nikita January 23, 2013

    Why cant people just praise Adele without trying to shade Beyonce? This is an Adele post not Beyonce. You are too bothered about Beyonce just give Adele a compliment on her own post and leave it at that!

    • Jer January 24, 2013

      Pot. Kettle. Black

  24. King B>Rihanna January 23, 2013

    I’m glad,I’m happy and I love how every fickle bandwagon fan likes to bring up Adele to hate on Beyonce unless she is your fav she is out-selling everybody so remember that because if she was not as successful alot of you would not bring her up and would have not like her.Love her from since Chasing Pavements.

    • BEYONCE GOT DRAGGED!!! January 23, 2013

      B**** SHUT UP YOU MAD YOUR FAV IS GETTING DRAGGED LIKE NO OTHER ADELE IS A TRUE HONEST TALENT SHE DONT GOTTA TAKE HER CLOTHES OFF & LIP SING LIKE A DRAGQUEEN AS YOUR FRAUD ASS FAV DOES HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

      • Iz (Queen Adele) January 23, 2013

        @beyoncegotdragged Please I am an Adele fan and dont feel the need to use Adele against Beyonce so people like you need to stop jumping on her c*** because you are clearly more bothered about Beyonce than her! Not here for phonys. I love Beyonce too, got mad respect for her and so does my fave even if she did lip sync doesnt take away from her talent.

    • Jer January 24, 2013

      Because no BeYAWNce stan ever shades anyone to build of BIONCI b**** f****** admit yourself stat

  25. Yeah I Said it January 23, 2013

    This girl is talented but she has got to be the most overrated artist of all time! And I dont usually use the race card but if she was black she would not be this big! But she is white with the voice of black woman which makes people fascinated by her. Yeah I said it! I prefer Amy Winehouses music all day!

    • Iz (Queen Adele) January 23, 2013

      B**** y r u using my account!

    • Flop Cheeta Whora gave Rob an STD from her 20 guys January 23, 2013

      If she were black, she would not write with such artistry. Sorry but black women are not good songwriters. Sade is the only one and that is cos she is mixed and acts white.

      Jill scott, melanie Fiona etc cannot write an indepth song to save their lives.

      • shawn242 January 23, 2013

        B**** plz! Indepth songs? have you listened to Jill Scott and Erykah Badu? just becuase this Big B**** is white you dumb m************ are obsessed with her one toned voice ass!

      • Touché January 23, 2013

        Sybil take your ignorance and shove it strait up your big ass.

  26. Iz (Queen Adele) January 23, 2013

    Yay Adele keep rising! But the Navy are pathetic. Stop pretending u r excited and rooting for Adele just so you can downgrade Beyonce. Tricks are for kids.

    • truth(slayer of icki funky ass stans B****!!) January 23, 2013

      Silly rabbits

  28. Beyonce The Liar Who Caught Scamming Obama January 23, 2013

    Beyonce———————–> Janet pt2 🙂

  29. Beyonce America’s Biggest Scammer Of 21st Century January 23, 2013

    Beyonce lied to America…by CNN

  30. mc the place to be! January 23, 2013

    So Adele overrated because of her music okay y’all acting like she doesn’t deserve her success atleast she’s has people focused on her career mostly music than her personal life she’s really the only artist today that’s successful because of her music alone just leave her alone and let her be successful she deserves everything she gets

  31. King B>Rihanna January 23, 2013

    IZ (QUEEN ADELE) is my type of commenter. We keep it 100 all the time.

  32. mob: it’s not so fun when the rabbit’s got the gun January 23, 2013

    Okay, I’m a tad tired of the brohaha over Adele! I like her but enough is enough!

    Good for her though!

  33. MRKAREEMRUIZ January 23, 2013

    overrated cuz white ans sing soul

  34. SLAYLOR SWIFT THE REAL TALENT January 23, 2013

    I’m actually pretty excited about this performance. Though she won’t move her body a bit, her voice will be tip top. This is the only woman who can move more units than Princess Swift. But soon that smoking will catch up and her days as Adele will turn to Won’tSell and Slaylor will be number 1. For now I will enjoy her.

    Cute Layne Bryant outfit too!

  35. JOHNVIDAL January 23, 2013

    Ok ok ok I have to say several things:

    – Congrats Adele. Nobody did it this big since the new century started. To be on Whitney´s Mariah´s Celine´s etc level of success she would have to do this with several albums, not just one. But damn this is the nearest thing I´ve seen since the 90´s (I´m talking about success). Pure slayage

    – Ok b******, both Rihanna and Beyonce fans are pathetic (or some of them). I was the FIRST one saying it seemed to me Beyonce lipped in the first post TGJ made about her performance. I didn´t see any of you say anything like that. Then the day after it is confirmed and you all try to make it seem like Beyonce did the worst thing in the world. Rihanna fans have no room to talk about anybody: her numbers are average and she can´t sing, dance or songwrite. Sghe is a pathetic product

    – Here for Beyonce fans: you were doing the most the other day saying she never lips, she is the best blah blah blah and you needed to be lectured, so I did it. Beyonce is 10 times more talented than Ritry. So like I always say I don´t bash Beyonce or something. It´s just that I want to put things in their place. Beyonce lips A LOT, she has always done it from the start. And I´m not bashing her, I´m just saying. No Celine or Mariah fan would say their faves never lip. We know they do, it´s ok. But saying Beyonce never lips and she is the best vocalist ever??? B****** you will be lectured. Just that, accept she is not greatness. And btw her numbers are also pretty average.

    – Conclusions: both Beyonce and Rihanna stans on TGJ (most of them) are delusional and pathetic. Oh and yeah Whitney Houston is the best LIVE singer in history who even started to destroy her voice (even before drugs) cos of always touring live singing those impossible songs of hers. #legendary And yes she lipped the Anthem once, not that anybody caes after being left slayed for life (she also sang it live at the Welcome Home Heroes special so…)

  36. WHO MOUTHED THE WORDS? (BEY!) January 24, 2013

    I hope she delivers an amazing live performance, unlike that fraud Dreamgirl wannabe-actress who performed with Hugh Jackman lipsynching!

  37. setra January 25, 2013

    It will be great to see Adele perform Skyfall at the Oscars! It’s also good to hear that the song is being nominated for Best Original Song. I’ll be at work at DISH when it’s on so I’ll be recording it. My roommates and I will be able to record up to six programs on our DISH Hopper. This way no one will have to argue about what to watch.
