Will Adele make her triumphant return at next month’s Oscars telecast?
That’s the rumour making the rounds today, after it was announced that the 85th Academy Awards — which air Sunday, February 23 — will feature a tribute to the James Bond film franchise, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary and which (as you’re probably aware) Adele recently became a part of with her song “Skyfall.”
The logic goes that Adele would perform the song during the tribute, marking her first onstage appearance in more than a year. And that might not be the only time she shows up during the telecast, either: “Skyfall” is also on the shortlist of tracks eligible for the Best Original Song Oscar, and is widely expected to pick a nod when nominations are announced on January 10.
A spokesperson for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which presents the Oscars, did not respond to MTV News‘ request for comment on the matter by press time… of course, it’s entirely possible fans might be seeing Adele before that show airs: “Skyfall” is also nominated for Best Original Song at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards.
There’s been no word on whether Adele will perform or appear at the Globes; when MTV News spoke to her frequent collaborator (and “Skyfall” producer) Paul Epworth last month, he said he had “no idea” about her plans for the show.
