British singing sensation Adele will be performing at this year's Grammy Awards, the Recording Academy announced on Friday, offering her a chance at redemption one whole year after her set went musically awry last time.

The chart-topping English balladeer will perform a song at the televised February 12 gala in Los Angeles, joining the ranks of the previously announced John Legend and Metallica.

Adele named Billboard Top Artist of the Year for third time

Last year at the Grammys, a microphone fell on the strings of the piano as she sang All I Ask off her blockbuster album 25. The sound briefly went out and Adele's voice drifted out of tune during the rest of the song.

The Recording Academy, which organizes the music industry's premier awards night, took responsibility for the snafu. Adele made light of the situation, telling fans on Twitter that she sulked by indulging in a burger from California's popular In-N-Out chain.
