Adele will make her live comeback at this year’s Grammy Awards, it has been confirmed.
The singer will perform live for the first time since undergoing vocal cord surgery five months ago.
Adele shared the news via her Twitter account, posting:
“Ima be, Ima be singing at the Grammys. It’s been so long I started to forget I was a singer! I can’t wait, speak soon xx (sic).”
In a statement, the singer said she was “immensely proud” to have been asked to perform:
“It’s an absolute honor to be included in such a night, and for it to be my first performance in months is very exciting and of course nerve-racking, but what a way to get back into it all.”
Twenty-three-year-old Adele, real name Adele Laurie Blue Adkins, is up for six awards on the night, including Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance.
Back in October, she was forced to cancel two world tours after suffering a vocal cord haemorrhage, undergoing surgery the following month.
Her Grammys performance will be her first time singing live for five months. She is also scheduled to perform at the BRITs later this month.
The 54th Grammy Awards will take place on 12 February 2012 in Los Angeles and will be hosted by L.L. Cool J.
