Following what can only be described as an AWESOME 12 months, Adele is set to return to the Grammys.
While it was initially teased that the British singer, along with Beyoncé, would be performing at the awards show, which takes place on February 12th, Grammy bosses confirmed the news that Adele would be returning to the Grammy stage.
Having already won 10 (!) Grammys, the singer is nominated for a incredible five further awards at this year’s event: album of the year and best pop vocal album for her record breaking album 25; and record of the year, song of the year, and best pop solo performance for “Hello.”
Now Adele is set to perform at the Grammys for a third time.
The London-born singer previously attended the awards show, which honors the best music from the past 12 months, last year, in which she performed her track “All I Ask.” However, the performance was met with technical difficulties, leaving the performance pitchy.
The singer quickly took to Twitter to explain what had occurred during the performance, saying that it was all down to a pesky piano mic. “Shit happens.”
She then later said that she was treating herself to an In-n-Out burger, which we totally get tbh.
It’s expected that Adele will sweep up at the awards, especially given that her third album, 25, has gone on to become the second biggest selling album of the millennium. The collection is only eclipsed by 21, the singer’s second album. Indeed, 25 became the first album to sell 3.38 million copies in one week in the U.S., beating a record held by Britney Spears and *NSYNC
Meanwhile, Adele will join John Legend, Metallica, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban in performing at the Grammys. It’s also rumored that Beyoncé, who has become the most nominated in woman in Grammy history with her album Lemonade, will perform at the event.
The 59th Grammy Awards telecast will take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. They will air live on CBS on Sunday, February 12th at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
