After accepting an award for “Skyfall” at the Golden Globes, Adele will get on stage again and perform her Oscar-nominated theme song from the newest James Bond movie at the 85th Academy Awards ceremony, the show's producers said Wednesday.

"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,” said Adele. “It's something I've never experienced and probably only ever will once!"

The performance will be the first time she will have performed "Skyfall" live and her first U.S. TV performance since the Grammys last year.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the song, "Skyfall," from the James Bond film, is nominated in the best original song category at the Oscars.

Written by Adele and Paul Epworth, it is the first Bond theme ever to debut in Billboard's top 10 chart and the first to be nominated for an Oscar since "For Your Eyes Only" in 1981. 

The Academy Awards air on Feb. 24, hosted by Seth MacFarlane.
