Ailing songstress Adele, nominated for six Grammys, is planning on attending the awards ceremony in Los Angeles next month and hopes to sing at the event.
Adele was forced to cancel her remaining tour and promotional appearances after undergoing throat surgery last November and is on the shelf indefinitely.
The "Rolling In The Deep" singer is nominated in six categories, including album of the year, record of the year, and song of the year for her second album, 21.
Adele underwent vocal cord microsurgery by Dr. Steven Zeitels to stop recurrent vocal cord hemorrhage (bleeding) from a benign polyp, according to reports.
Her rehabilitation is well underway.
"Adele will be at the Grammys in Los Angeles on February 12 at the Staples Center," a source close to the singer says. "She's thrilled to be nominated."
"It's been a hard time for her because of the surgery. She has begun talking more, with her doctor's permission. Adele's best friend in recent weeks has been warm compresses around her neck to help the healing process of her vocal cords."
"Producers of the Grammys would love to have Adele perform and open the show, but she isn't able to give them an answer yet. She won't be able to give them an answer until the beginning of February, and they completely understand."
Adele has also lost 25 pounds in recent months, according to reports.
