Adele has said that's she's more than nervous when it comes to singing at the Academy Awards ceremony later this month in Los Angeles.

The London singer will be performing 'Skyfall', her and Paul Epworth's song from last year's Bond film of the same name.

Speaking after collecting her award for Best Pop Solo Performance for her live version of 'Set Fire To The Rain' at last night's Grammys, the star was asked how she was feeling about singing live at the Oscars ceremony on February 24 at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. Adele responded:

I'm shitting myself!

'Skyfall' has been nominated for Best Original Song at the Academy Awards. In a messaged posted on the website of her label, XL Recordings, Adele said:

"It's an honour to be nominated and terrifyingly wonderful to be singing in front of people who have captured my imagination over and over again. It's something I've never experienced and probably only ever will once!"

Adele has already picked up a Golden Globe for 'Skyfall'.

Mumford & Sons and The Black Keys also scooped up Grammy Awards last night (February 10).

The Black Keys bagged the most success overall, winning four of the six awards for which they had been shortlisted including Best Rock Song and Best Rock Album for 'El Camino'.

Frontman Dan Auerbach also received an extra prize for Non-Classical Producer for his work on for his work on Dr. John's 'Locked Down' and other albums.

Mumford & Sons picked up the coveted Record Of The Year prize for their second album 'Babel'. They were presented with the award by Adele. "We figured we weren't going to win anything, because The Black Keys have been sweeping up all day, and deservedly so," Marcus Mumford told the audience.
