ADELE will perform at the ACADEMY AWARDS - OSCARS!

Quote:
We are delighted to confirm that Adele will perform her Oscar-nominated song Skyfall at the 85th Academy Awards in Los Angeles on 24 February.

Adele will perform Skyfall live for the first time anywhere during her exclusive Oscar show performance. It will also be Adele's first public performance since the Grammys last year [February 2012].

Just when you think it doesn't get any more boring than Billy Crystal hosting, they put Adele on stage

Do no harm, but take no shit.

But can't believe it's been almost one year since her last public performance.

Great so more of her standing in one place singing. Basically if you've seen 1 Adele performance, you have seen them all. She'll probably wear black as well.

SERENA 21 GRAND SLAMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

When you have the kind of vocal talent and charisma that Adele does, you don't distract from that with cheap slutty gimmicks.

Better distract with something, I rather pay to watch performers, entertainers.

I don't pay to watch someone stand on stage and sing in one spot, no matter how good the voice is, I have youtube for that, for free.

And yes Adele does have an amazing voice, one of, if not the best out of the current singers out there. Though Beyonce and Lady Gaga both have amazing voices as well (I'm not saying Adele's caliber.) but they still go out and dance and entertain also.

SERENA 21 GRAND SLAMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So this means 21 will sell another 100k copies that week, even though Skyfall isn't even on that album.

Most of the greatest vocalists of all time do/did what you don't like: they stood there and sang! As do classical singers. Some of us appreciate that! Not criticising your musical choices, just saying!
