Adele’s “Skyfall” Performance At The Oscars: Review Revue



:: The Los Angeles Times felt Shirley Bassey and Adele’s Bond songs saved the night: “Like Bassey, she doesn’t succumb to the drama inherent in the song’s big-band orchestration. Adele practically tunes it out, and though Oscar host Seth MacFarlane joked earlier that Adele would be “shouting” at the audience, she did anything but, keeping her vocals low and her tone slyly conversational.”

:: MTV found nothing to gripe about: “Adele let loose with her very own James Bond tribute on Sunday night’s (February 24) Oscars. Done up in sequined all-black everything, the diva gave a flawless performance of the theme song for ‘Skyfall’.”

:: HitFix felt Adele’s vocals could have been more prominent in the mix: “All night, the house orchestra tended to overpower vocals — including on other powerhouse performances from 007-famed Shirley Bassey and Dreamgirls Oscars winner Jennifer Hudson. While Adele kept her kinder notes understated like in the recording, her backing band seemed to challenge her. Great performance on her part, but an iffy mix.”

:: also lamented the vocal mix: “In her first televised performance since giving birth to her child, Adele belted out Skyfall‘s title track to the excitement of many. But from the second she stepped out on that Oscar stage (introduced by America’s other favorite no-filter queen, Jennifer Lawrence), the emotional rollercoaster we were ready to board was not ready for us. The mix seemed to overpower Adele — an impressive feat considering the strength the singer holds in her incredible vocal chords — and she seemed visibly frustrated through the entirety.”
