Adele to make comeback at Grammys

01 February 2012, 10:45

United States - British soul singer Adele is to make her much-awaited comeback after throat surgery at the upcoming Grammys show, organisers of the music industry awards bash said on Tuesday.

Adele, who is nominated for six awards including three of the key categories at the February 12 show, has been out of action since October when a throat problem forced her to cancel all engagements for the rest of the year.

"I'm immensely proud to have been asked to perform at this year's Grammy Awards," said Adele, whose hits include Someone Like You and Rolling in the Deep, in a statement issued by Grammys organisers The Recording Academy.


"It's an absolute honour to be included in such a night, and for it to be my first performance in months is very exciting and of course nerve-racking, but what a way to get back into it all," she added.

Adele, 23, has continued to attract awards nominations and wins despite being dogged by her health problems last year, and was second only to Kanye west in Grammys nods. The US rapper is up for seven prizes.

The Grammys, the music industry's top star-studded awards bash, will also feature performances from pop legend Paul McCartney, as well as Coldplay, Rihanna, the Foo Fighters, Bruno Mars, Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift.

Iconic US band The Beach Boys announced in December that they expect to appear at the Grammys, ahead of a 50th anniversary reunion tour, although they were not included in the line-up so far put out by Grammy organisers.
