Adele will perform her latest single release Skyfall for the first time at the Oscars ceremony on February 24.

The performance of the James Bond theme song (produced by Paul Epworth) is nominated in the Original Song category and will mark the Brit singer’s first televised US performance since the Grammy Awards in February 2012, where she picked up all of the six prizes she was nominated for and performed Rolling In The Deep.

Adele said in a statement: "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.

"It's something I've never experienced and probably only ever will once."

Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, producers of the 2013 Oscars, said in a statement: "We have enormous respect for Adele's unique artistry as a songwriter and a singer.

"She is currently one of the most successful recording artists in the world, and we believe that her performance of Skyfall will be an exciting Oscar moment for audiences watching at the Dolby Theatre and on television screens around the world."

In the Original Song category. Skyfall is up against Before My Time from Chasing Ice, Pi's Lullaby from Life Of Pi, Suddenly from Les Misérables and Everybody Needs A Best Friend from Ted.
