After nearly four months of silence, Adele will break the whisper spell on February 21 at the Brit Awards. The Grammy-nominated singer has been off the live performance radar since surgery to stop bleeding from a polyp on her vocal cords in November, but organizers of the show confirmed on Thursday that she will sing again at the event where she is nominated for three awards.
“F—ing happy, thank you for the nods xx,” she Tweeted on Thursday in response to the nominations.
Adele is not, however, the most nominated act at the Brits. She shares three nods with Jessie J, while unknown-in-the U.S. singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran topped an nominees with four nominations. Among the acts tapped in the International Group category are: Foo Fighters, Fleet Foxes, Jay-Z/Kanye West, Lady Antebellum and Maroon 5. In the International Female Solo Artist Rihanna will face off against Beyoncé, Bjork, Feist and Lady Gaga.
While the Brit Awards confirmation is great news for Adele’s fans, there is still no word on whether she’ll take the stage at the February 12 Grammy Awards, where she’s up for six honors. She also Tweeted the message, “Looking forward to the @theGrammys on Feb. 12!” a short after her Brit Awards note, indicating that, at the very least, she’ll be in the room for the show.
A recent report claimed that she is in talks to sing on the show now that she’s begun talking again with her doctor’s permission. Since she doesn’t want to rush back and injure her vocal cord again, the singer is reportedly waiting until early next month to decide if she can sing in public again as early as the Grammys.
