(CBS) Adele will return to the stage on Feb. 12 for the 54th annual Grammy Awards, marking her first performance in nearly five months.

Last fall, the British singer was forced to scrap her tour to undergo vocal cord surgery.

"I'm immensely proud to have been asked to perform at this year's Grammy Awards," said Adele 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."

Adele, who's up for six Grammys, joins a long list of performers that includes Glen Campbell, Paul McCartney, Jason Aldean, Kelly Clarkson, Coldplay and Rihanna, Foo Fighters, Bruno Mars, Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift.

The "Rolling in the Deep" is already confirmed to play the Brit Awards on Feb. 21.

She's also back on social media, recently posting a note to clear up reports about her new beau, Simon Konecki, who heads up the U.K. charity, Drop4Drop.

Earlier this month, Adele wrote, "This is the first and last time I will comment on the details of my relationship with Simon. Contrary to reports and headlines in the press today, Simon is divorced and has been for 4 years. Everyone in our lives separately and together wish us nothing but the best, and vice versa. These are the facts. Take care and see you all in February."

The Grammys will air live Feb. 12 on CBS at 8 p.m. ET.
