Adele Adkins will perform at the 2017 Grammy Awards, the academy has confirmed.
This will be the fourth time the singer-songwriter will be performing at the award ceremony, after gracing the Grammy stage in 2009 (with Sugarland), 2012 and 2016.
Adele, a 10-time Grammy winner, is nominated in five categories, including Record of the Year (Hello), Song of the Year (Hello), Best Pop Solo Performance (Hello) and Best Pop Vocal Album (25).
25 was the best-selling album in the United States in both 2015 and 2016. It is the second biggest album of the millennium, trailing her sophomore album, 21.
Last year, Adele fell victim to a technical mishap while singing All I Ask.
Her microphone fell on the piano keys, which forced the show to switch to a backup sound system that caused a momentary dip in audio quality.
In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, the singer said she “cried all day” after the event.
“It threw the whole thing off. Next time I have any sound issues, I am going to start over. [I will tell them,] ‘Sorry, that’s not working for me.’ Otherwise… bye! In fairness, I would have cried if it went really well. If it was a standout performance, I would have cried as well. I always cry. I was so embarrassed. It can’t get much worse than the Grammys.”
The previously announced Grammy performers include John Legend, Metallica, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban.
Beyoncé leads the pack this year with nine nominations, while Drake, Rihanna and Kanye West have eight nominations each.
