Adele fans will be glad to know that they'll soon get a chance to see the British sensation singing live again. She's just been announced as the latest artist to be performing at the 54th annual Grammy Awards.


Adele is nominated for six Grammys, including Album of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Performance. She'll join a growing roster of performers who will hit the stage February 12, including Nicki Minaj, Bruno Mars, Taylor Swift and more.


That the 23-year-old singer-songwriter has been confirmed as a performer at the awards ceremony is noteworthy because of the vocal chord issues she suffered through much of 2011. Adele canceled several tour dates and appearances last year due to hemorrhaging in her throat, which doctors operated on in November.


“Looking forward to @theGRAMMYs on Feb 12!” she wrote on Twitter.


In addition to performing at the Grammy's, Adele will also be hitting the stage at the BRITs, the UK equivalent to the vaunted awards. That show will take place on February 21.


21, the singer's sophomore album that will likely earn her a mantle-full of trophies, just spent its 15th non-consecutive week at number one on the Billboard 200. The last album to claim the top spot that many times was the Titanic soundtrack in 1998.
