Adele already received award recognition for her James Bond theme song Skyfall and many are thrilled to see her take the stage at the Academy Awards on Feb. 24 to perform after a long hiatus, but fans might not get the thrill of a live show like they hoped for. 

The United Kingdom native received a Golden Globe in January and a BRIT Award on Wednesday for Skyfall, which is also nominated for Best Original Score and Best Original Song at the Oscars. Adele will perform the song on stage Sunday but will be accompanied by a pre-recorded track, according to The Huffington Post.

"Most of the performers who take the stage on Oscar night have pre-recorded their song with the orchestra ahead of the live show," a singer who has performed at the Academy Awards said. "This is not unusual and Adele will do the same. It's almost always done when a show is live. Then if anything goes wrong or something happens, the producers in the control room can cut to tape." 

An industry insider added that Adele "is old-school" and will sing live at the show but that the pre-recorded track will be provided as a "backup option" in case anything goes wrong. 

Skyfall was written by Adele and Paul Epworth. It is the first Bond theme to be nominated for an Oscar since For Your Eyes Only in 1981, according to the report.

The singer accepted her BRIT Award for Best British Single on Wednesday via a recorded message. She was not in London to accept the award in person because she was already in Los Angeles preparing for her Oscars performance. Other nominees in the category included Florence + The Machine, Coldplay featuring Rihanna, Robbie Williams, Jessie J, Alex Clare, Emeli Sande and more.

Watch the Academy Awards live on Feb. 24 at 7 p.m. ET. For a full list of the night's nominees, click here.
