Just so we’re all on the same page: Adele will perform “Skyfall” on the Academy Awards show on February 24th– only. She will simply appear, but not sing, on Sunday’s Golden Globes.
I told you last week that the mega-hit British singer had to choose, and that she wouldn’t sacrifice her Oscar slot for the wonky Golden Globes. The Globes are to the Oscars as the American Music Awards are to the Grammys.
Adele, a source close to her says, will arrive in Los Angeles today and remain here through the next six weeks until the Oscar show. Since Adele will be here though the Grammy Awards on February 10th, it’s likely she will show up there and maybe sing “Set Fire to the Rain” – for which she was nominated this year.
It’s unknown at this point if Adele–with her new baby in tow–will take time to explore writing or recording a new album. Her “21” album remains a bestseller with over 10 million copies sold.
Meantime, the “Skyfall” theme was nominated yesterday officially for an Oscar. And it won the Critics Choice Awards.
