The 'Someone Like You' singer says it will be "terrifyingly wonderful" to perform at this year's Academy Awards.
Adele has been confirmed for a performance at this year's Oscars ceremony after weeks of speculation about her role in this year's show.
The 'Rolling In The Deep' singer will make her first performance in twelve months at the Oscars 2013 next month (24th February) when she performs her James Bond theme song 'Skyfall' live on stage.
"Best 4 Words Ever: Adele Performing At #Oscars," the official Academy Awards Twitter account posted this afternoon, to confirm the much rumoured performance.
"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," Adele said in a statement announcing the performance. "It's something I've never experienced and probably only ever will once.
"We have enormous respect for Adele's unique artistry as a songwriter and a singer," show producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron added. "She is currently one of the most successful recording artists in the world and we believe her performance of 'Skyfall' will be an exciting Oscar moment for audiences watching at the Dolby Theatre and on television screens around the world."
Adele has already had a successful start to 2013 after picking up the gong for Best Original Song for 'Skyfall' at the Golden Globes 2013 earlier this month, where she dedicated her award to partner Simon Konecki and her newborn son.

The Academy Awards 2013 will take place from Los Angeles on 24th February, where Adele has also been nominated in the category for 'Best Original Song' for 'Skyfall'.
