(NEW YORK) — After much speculation, Adele has confirmed that she will perform live on the Grammy Awards on Feb. 12. It will be the singer’s first performance since undergoing vocal cord surgery last fall.
In a statement, Adele said, “I’m immensely proud to have been asked to perform at this year’s Grammy Awards. 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-wracking, but what a way to get back into it all.”
Initially, there was concern that the Grammys would suffer if Adele, who is up for six awards, would not be able to sing on the telecast. Already the proud owner of two Grammys, Adele’s nominations this year include Album of the Year, Record of the Year and Song of the Year.
