There was some news that the cast of Les Miserables were going to perform at the Oscars but so far, at least in my news streams, I never got a confirmation on that. But now it is being reported that Adele will be there to perform Skyfall.
The AMPAS will be paying tribute to the 50th anniversary of Bond. Many believed that meant Skyfall would have been the first film nominated for Best Picture. It probably would have if the Oscars had stuck with an even ten. But since they have a system of each member only choosing five it was less likely, since not that many people who have put Skyfall at number one.
“It’s an honor to be nominated and terrifyingly wonderful to be singing in front of people who have captured my imagination over and over again,” Adele said after nominations were announced. “It’s something I’ve never experienced and probably only ever will once!”
The Oscars will unfurl, amid much fanfare, on Sunday, February 24, 2013.
