Adele, the UK’s own “iron lung” singer, is to perform at the Grammy Awards ceremony on Sunday. She has been nominated for Album of the Year, Song of the Year and Record of the Year.

The Recording Academy announced on Jan. 20 that Adele is to sing at the awards presentation ceremony in the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The Recording Academy has already announced that Metallica, Carrie Underwood, John Legend and Keith Urban will all be on the performance list on the day.

During her performance at the Grammy Awards last year, a microphone fell onto the piano strings, followed by the audio momentarily dropping out.

This year, the singer, who has already won 10 Grammies, has been nominated for another five, including Album of the Year for “25” and Best Pop Vocal Album.
