Adele confirms Grammys comeback

Adele is gearing up for her big comeback after confirming she is to take to the stage at the 2012 Grammy Awards.

The British superstar has not performed in public since calling off a string of tour dates to undergo surgery to her vocal cords last year (11).

Now Adele has thrilled fans by announcing she'll make her return to the spotlight at the most prestigious event in the music calendar.

In a post on her Twitter.com page, she writes, "Ima be, Ima be (sic) singing at the Grammys. It's been so long I started to forget I was a singer! I can't wait, speak soon xx"

The 54th Grammy Awards, to be held on 12 February (12), will be a big night for Adele - she has also been nominated for six statues.

Coldplay, Rihanna, Sir Paul McCartney, Kelly Clarkson, the Foo Fighters, Bruno Mars, Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift have also been booked to perform.
