Adele 'Can't Wait' To Sing Live At Grammys

31 January 2012
After months of vocal rest, Adele is returning to the stage for her first live performance, and she's doing it at the Grammys. The six-time Grammy nominee will grace the stage live on February 12 for the first time since undergoing surgery to stop bleeding from a polyp on her vocal cords in November.

Adele broke the good news to her fans on Tuesday (January 31) via Twitter. "Ima be, Ima be singing at the Grammys.

It's been so long I started to forget I was a singer!" Adele tweeted. "I can't wait, speak soon xx."

This will be the second time that Adele has graced the Grammy stage. She performed her hit song "Chasing Pavements" in 2009 at the annual awards show. That same night, Adele took home two awards, for Best New Artist and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for "Pavements."

In a statement on Tuesday afternoon, the U.K. singer expressed gratitude. "I'm immensely proud to have been asked to perform at this year's Grammy Awards," she said. "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."

This year, Adele has plenty of company from other A-list nominees set to sing at the show. Rihanna, Coldplay, Taylor Swift, Paul McCartney, Foo Fighters, Bruno Mars, Kelly Clarkson, Jason Aldean and Nicki Minaj will all perform live at the 54th Annual Grammys, which will be hosted by LL Cool J, the first time in seven years that the show has featured a host.

Earlier this month, Adele expressed her excitement about the awards, tweeting, "Looking forward to @theGRAMMYs on Feb 12! #WeAreMusic."

Adele is up for six awards this year, including Song of the Year, Record of the Year and Album of the Year for her record-breaking 21. Just last week, the "Rolling in the Deep" singer's second album marked its 17th non-consecutive week at #1 on the Billboard albums chart.

The singer will follow her performance at the Grammys by taking the stage on February 21 at the Brit Awards, where she has three nominations. Earlier this month Adele took to her Twitter about the nominations. "F---ing happy, thank you for the nods xx," she tweeted.
