U.K. sensation Adele has been booked to sing the Oscar nominated "Skyfall" theme during the show. From a demographic and audience standpoint, this is a major coup for the show, booking one of the most popular artists on the planet, it will not only will it be her first television appearance since the Grammys last year, but the first time she's performed the "Skyfall" theme live. Good work, producers. Now the question is whether or not the other Best Original Song contenders will get to perform their numbers as well, and with Seth MacFarlane's "Ted" nominated (and with him being a big showtunes fan) and "Les Miserables" a massive box office success, we'd wager it's a pretty good bet we'll be seeing five performances through the evening instead of a medley.
The Oscars will air on February 24th so tune in to find out if Adele will take home her first Oscar too. [Deadline]
