NEW YORK -- Adele will perform her James Bond theme song, "Skyfall," at the Oscars, her first U.S. performance since last year's Grammy Awards.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences said Wednesday that the British singer/songwriter will perform the Oscar-nominated song at the 85th annual Academy Awards on Feb. 24. She and producer Paul Epworth are nominated for best original song for "Skyfall."

The announcement isn't much of a surprise, considering Adele's award-show ubiquity. She recently won a Golden Globe for the Bond song.

Adele hasn't previously sung "Skyfall" live for an audience. She said in a statement that she's honored to be singing in front of people who've captured her imagination. The Oscars also will present a tribute to James Bond, marking the 50th anniversary of the franchise.
