Adele Is Set To Perform At The 2017 Grammy Awards
Music sensation Adele is making one of the biggest nights in the music industry even bigger – yes, that’s right, the British singer is set to perform at this year’s Grammys.
It was announced at the beginning of the weekend by the Recording Academy that the Rolling In The Deep singer has joined the line up for the 2017 show.
She is set to perform a song from her award-winning album 25 at the event on February 12 at LA’s Staple Center.
This isn’t the first time the London-born artist has performed live at the Grammys – she took to the stage in 2009, 2012 and 2016, but this will arguably be her biggest performance yet.
Also in the highly anticipated lineup for this year’s show are John Legend, Metallica, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban.
Adele has won 10 Grammys during her career, and is now up to win a possible five more, with her nominations including ‘Record of the Year’ for ‘Hello’, Song of the Year for ‘Hello’, Best Pop Solo Performance for ‘Hello’ and Best Pop Vocal Album for ’25’.
Despite being a worldwide sellout, her third album 25 is up against some tough competition this year with the likes of Beyoncé‘s Lemonade and Justin Bieber‘s Purpose being nominated in the album category too.
Even though the record was released a staggering 17 months prior to the 2017 Grammys, there’s a chance the 28-year old could scoop up the gong again.
Adele is hoping to have a smooth Grammy’s experience this year on stage. The star was left astounded last year when her rendition of song ‘All I Ask’ was overshadowed by her microphone dropping onto the piano keys and a backup sound system having to be used instead.
The talented and soulful singer didn’t let the awkward moment phase her though, with the Academy President Neil Portnow saying,
All credit to her for how professional she is… She did a great job and we certainly don’t like when those things happen, but those things happen sometimes.
