Adele to sing Bond theme at Oscars ceremony

Rumours abound that she will appear on stage with all six Bond actors

Adele will sing the theme to 23rd Bond film 'Skyfall' at the Oscars, it's been confirmed, the first time she has ever performed the song live.

The news comes as rumours gather that all six Bond actors - Daniel Craig, Pierce Brosnan, Timothy Dalton, Roger Moore, George Lazenby and Sean Connery - will appear on stage at the ceremony to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the series.

It's also rumoured that Adele's performance could be the centre-piece for the appearance.

Though 'Skyfall' did not receive a coveted Best Picture nomination, the theme song, penned by Adele and producer Paul Epworth, did get itself a Best Original Song nomination, and is currently the bookies' favourite to win.

“It's an honour to be nominated and terrifyingly wonderful to be singing in front of people who have captured my imagination over and over again,” she said. “It's something I've never experienced and probably only ever will once!”

The singer recently collected a Golden Globe for the song.

Meanwhile, 'Skyfall' is the first Bond theme to be nominated for an Oscar since 'For Your Eyes Only' by Sheena Easton in 1981.

The ceremony takes place on February 24.
