Adele is nominated for six Grammys

Adele is ready for her triumphant return.

The British star is back to sing her way to the top after canceling her 10-city U.S. tour last year to undergo throat surgery, breaking the hearts of her enormous fan base.

In a blog post last October, Adele declared to her fans that she had to have the surgery to “make sure I can always sing and always make music for you to the best of my ability.”

Well, she’s back.

The “Rolling in the deep” singer showed off her vocals for the first time since surgery when CBS Morning News teased her upcoming appearance on 60 Minutes.

In the video, Anderson Cooper asked her to sing “Rolling in the Deep,” and she obliged by breaking out her post-surgery voice and serenading the host of AC 360.

“There’s a fire starting in my heart,” she sang a cappella, while looking off to the side.

The true test for Adele will come on Sunday when she sings live during the Grammys, where she is up for six awards, including album of the year.

“A couple days after finally being able to talk again I’m pretty speechless,” the singer wrote in her blog in December. “Thank you so much to the academy for nominating this record for 6 Grammys!!! This has been the best year as it is but to end 2011 with this incredible achievement and honour is beyond anything I can express.

“Thank you to every single person who has taken a shining to this record, for making it have such an impact, this record has taken on a life of its own thanks to you. I made the record and you’ve made it what’s its become.”
