Adele Going For ‘EGOT’ [VIDEO]
Adele could walk away with an Oscar Award Sunday for her performance for the James Bond movie theme song “Skyfall“. If she indeed wins, which is expected to happen, that wouldn’t be bad for a song she didn’t really have intentions of singing in the first place!
If “Skyfall” wins, Adele will receive an Oscar statue because she co-wrote the song and her trophy will be added to her growing collection. She has already won numerous Grammy Awards and just this week she picked up a Brit Award for the song in addition to earning a Golden Globe Award too!
So what’s next for Adele, she says jokingly if she wins Sunday night she going to go for the EGOT next. EGOT is a term coined by the show 30 Rock which means winning an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony Award. Only 11 people in history have earned the EGOT status including Whoopi Goldberg, Audrey Hepburn and Mel Brooks.
If this is indeed her goal, Adele will need to break into Broadway and get a role on a TV show. She’s confident she can pull it off because she says, “I’m going to do it! I’m going to do a Whoopi. I’m gonna do it!”
Find out if Adele does indeed win an Oscar and begins her trek for the EGOT. The Oscar Awards are Sunday night on ABC beginning at 7:30p and she will perform the song during the show as well.
