Adding to her Grammy and Golden Globe wins, Adele picked up an Oscar for her James Bond song “Skyfall,” and like the other winners, she also got rather emotional.
Adele is the first female in the history of the Billboard Hot 100 to have three singles in the top 10 at the same time as a lead artist, and the first female artist to have two albums in the top five of the Billboard 200 and two singles in the top five of the Billboard Hot 100 simultaneously. And now also she has got an Oscar award.
“In her sparkling black dress, Adele played the new millennium Bond vixen when she took the stage to perform her Oscar-winning James Bond theme song, “Skyfall.” With its sparking backdrop, orchestra and choir, Adele proved to be diva number one. Ten years after “Chicago” resurrected the movie musical, Richard Gere, Queen Latifah, Renée Zellweger and Zeta-Jones all took the stage to hand out the Original Score Oscar to Mychael Danna for his work on “Life of Pi.”
The foursome stuck around to hand out Best Original Song. But first Norah Jonas took the stage to perform her track from “Ted,” “Everybody Needs A Best Friend.” Even with “Best Friend” songwriter MacFarlane hosting, the prize went to Adele and Paul Epworth for their James Bond theme.”
