Adele made a triumphant return to stage at tonight’s Academy Awards showing with a stunning performance of her nominated hit ‘Skyfall’ – the title theme song to the latest film in the James Bond series.
Looking to show off her well-praised chops post-baby, tuck in below to see how Brit-bred beauty fared with her first televised performance of the hit song at the Seth MacFarlane-hosted event:
There were parts of this performance Miss Adkins absolutely nailed. Lending her signature solemn stylings to the song, she certainly conveyed the song’s dramatics live while keeping the cool oft-associated with all things “Bond”. However, that very “cool” almost seemed to work against her in parts of the performance as it seemed anticlimactic, never completely building to “a moment”.
And, honestly, there were times Adele just looked bored as hell.
Either way, the performance proved an overall hit and reaffirms Adele’s position in a fluff-ridden industry. For that, we’ll take a hit-or-miss.
