Adele to perform at Grammys, first time since surgery
Adele is nominated for six Grammys, and she’ll be on deck to collect anything she wins: The 23-year-old singer is set to perform at the awards show.
Adele had surgery on her vocal cords last year, and the Grammys will be the first time she has performed live in five months, the Recording Academy announced Tuesday.
Her sophomore album, “21,” has sold more than 6 million copies in the U.S. It is nominated for album of the year and best pop vocal album. The CD has three singles that have hit the No. 1 spot on the Billboard chart, including “Rolling in the Deep,” which is up for record and song of the year.
While a Fox spokeswoman said Monday that Miss Scherzinger and Mr. Jones will not return for the show’s second season, several websites, including People.com and EW.com, are reporting that Miss Abdul also is departing the show.
According to the Associated Press, Mr. Jones, a British TV personality, called his departure “a shame” on Twitter and added that he couldn’t complain, “as I’ve had a great time.” He gave no reason why he wasn’t returning.
Mr. Jones originally was slated to host “X Factor” alongside Miss Scherzinger, who replaced British pop star Cheryl Cole as a judge when executive producer Simon Cowell and other producers had second thoughts about Miss Cole joining the series.
The second season of “X Factor” is set to debut later this year.
