"It's an honor to be nominated, and terrifyingly wonderful to be singing in front of people who have captured my imagination over and over again," Adele said in a statement to Access Hollywood. "It's something I've never experienced and probably only ever will once!"

"We have enormous respect for Adele's unique artistry as a songwriter and a singer," Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, the producers of this year's Academy Awards, said. "She is currently one of the most successful recording artists in the world, and we believe that her performance of 'Skyfall' will be an exciting Oscar moment for audiences watching at the Dolby Theatre and on television screens around the world."
