Music’s biggest night was already a big night for Adele: She’s nominated in six categories – a career high, and Kanye West only has her outnumbered by a single nod.
But the 2012 Grammy Awards represents another special milestone for the bluesy Brit with the powerhouse voice. Just two months after she underwent throat surgery for a hemorrhaged vocal chord, Adele will return to the stage for the first time since announcing the cancelation of her North American tour.
“Ima be, Ima be singing at the Grammys,” Adele, who’s currently dating former financier Simon Konecki, Tweeted Tuesday. “It’s been so long I started to forget I was a singer! I can’t wait.”
