ADELE CONFIRMED TO PERFORM "SKYFALL" AT OSCARS...(KIND-OF):
The Sun Times claims Adele will pre-record her Academy Awards performance. A source says, “It is merely a safety net for the show. Just in case something goes wrong, there will be that pre-recorded track to have for a fall-back option...but only if needed. Adele fully expects to perform the song live, and will have plenty of rehearsal time to prepare.” Adele will perform 'Skyfall' at the Oscars next month. "It's an honour to be nominated and terrifyingly wonderful to be singing in front of people who have captured my imagination over and over again," she said.
