Adele set to make music comeback at next month's Oscars?

by Fiona Raisbeck

She's been keeping a low profile since the birth of her son last year, but Adele is set to make a triumphant comeback next month with a performance at the Oscars.

The singer is rumoured to be hitting the famous Academy Awards stage on 24th February as part of a special James Bond tribute to celebrate the film franchise's 50th anniversary.

Her track Skyfall, which she penned with her music producer and co-writer Paul Epworth as the theme tune for the latest Bond flick, is also tipped to be nominated for the Oscar for Best Original Song, after it made the 75-track shortlist last month, so there's a big chance Adele could win one of the famous golden statuettes on the night too.

Talking about the awards' Bond tribute, ceremony producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron said: 'We are very happy to include a special sequence on our show saluting the Bond films on their 50th birthday.'

They added: 'Starting with Dr No back in 1962, the 007 movies have become the longest-running motion picture franchise in history and a beloved global phenomenon.'

Nominations for the 85th Academy Awards will be announced on 10th January.
