SANTA MONICA, Calif., Jan. 31 (UPI) -- British singer Adele will make her return to the live stage at the 54th annual Grammy Awards show in Los Angeles, the Recording Academy said Tuesday.

This will be her first time performing live in nearly five months. She was forced to cancel a sold-out U.S. concert tour to undergo surgery on her vocal cords last year.

"I'm immensely proud to have been asked to perform at this year's Grammy Awards," Adele said in a statement. "It's an absolute honor 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."

The 23-year-old recording artist has previously won two Grammy Awards. She is up for six this year.

LL Cool J will serve as host of the Grammy Awards show Feb. 12 at the Staples Center. It is to air on CBS.
