Singing sensational Adele has confirmed that she will make her long awaited musical comeback at this year's Grammy awards.

The 23-year-old Someone Like You hit maker , who was forced to cancel all her live dates following throat surgery on her vocal cords in November last year, will hit the stage at the prestigious US awards on February 21 before her highly anticipated performance at the Brit Awards just over a week later.

Adele took to Twitter to share the good news with fans by tweeting: "Ima be, Ima be singing at the Grammys. It's been so long I started to forget I was a singer! I can't wait, speak soon."

The British star is up for six gongs at this year's Grammy's including nominations for the coveted song of the year for Rolling In The Deep and best album of the year for 2011.

She has also earned three Brit Award nominations for the 2012 Brit Awards and is set to perform at the event a year after her powerful rendition of Someone Like You at the annual ceremony made her a worldwide superstar.

In a statement confirming her up and coming Grammy performance , the Rolling In The Deep singer said: "I'm immensely proud to have been asked to perform at this year's Grammy Awards.

"It's an absolute honour to be included in such a night, and for it to be my first performance in months is very exciting and of course nerve-racking, but what a way to get back into it all."

She has already been tipped to be a frontrunner at the annual awards ceremony following the success of her iconic album 21.
