After weeks of speculation, it has finally been announced that Adele will be performing at the 54th annual Grammy Awards on Feb. 12, marking her first live performance since undergoing vocal surgery last year.
“I’m immensely proud to have been asked to perform at this year’s GRAMMY Awards,” said Adele in a statement. “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.”
The “Rolling In The Deep” songstress joins previously-announced performers Jason Aldean, Kelly Clarkson, Glen Campbell, The Band Perry, Blake Shelton, Coldplay, Rihanna, Foo Fighters, Bruno Mars, Paul McCartney, Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift. LL Cool J is signed on to host.
Earlier today (Jan. 31), Adele tweeted about her upcoming performance. “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,” she wrote.
The two-time Grammy winner is nominated for six awards this year, including Album Of The Year, Record Of The Year and Song Of The Year.
The Grammy Awards take place at the Staples Center in L.A. and air on Feb. 12 from 8-11:30 p.m. (ET/PT) on CBS.
