Adele at Oscars

Adele will perform the James Bond theme ‘‘Skyfall’’ at the Oscars, her first US performance since last year’s Grammy Awards. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences said Wednesday that Adele will sing the Oscar-nominated song at the 85th annual Academy Awards on Feb. 24. She and producer Paul Epworth are nominated for best original song. The announcement isn’t much of a surprise considering Adele’s award show ubiquity. She won a Golden Globe for the Bond theme. The Oscars will also present a tribute to James Bond, marking the 50th anniversary of the franchise. (AP)

Black Keys sue again

The Black Keys are remaining vigilant when it comes to sound-a-like songs. The Nashville duo is suing Pinnacle Entertainment in New York federal court. Drummer Patrick Carney and singer-guitarist Dan Auerbach say the casino owner commissioned a song that sounds like their hit ‘‘Howlin’ for You’’ for a commercial advertising two of its Louisiana properties. They are asking a judge for an injunction and compensation. The Keys recently settled lawsuits against Pizza Hut and Home Depot over similar charges. The Keys are up for five trophies at next month’s Grammy Awards, and Auerbach also has been nominated for producer of the year. (AP)
