Anyone worrying about the effects of Adele's emergency throat surgery on her voice can rest assured: The soulful singer's still got it.

Though her upcoming performance at the Grammy Awards had been widely touted as the first televised post-surgery gig for Adele, CBS pulled a bit of a coup by airing a clip of Adele singing "Rolling In The Deep" for Anderson Cooper.

In a teaser clip for the show, Cooper asks her to sing the runaway single off 21 and she obliges without hesitation, launching into a typically rousing performance, sans any backing music.

It will be nice for Adele to find herself in the spotlight for her music again, recent headlines focused on disparaging comments about her weight from none other than designer Karl Lagerfeld. The singer responded and dismissed his comments by saying she represented real women, and Cooper himself has since also weighed in on the matter.

Adele is heavily favored to win a number of awards at this year's Grammy Awards, which take place on February 12. She's nominated for six awards (second only to Kanye West's seven noms), including album of the year, record of the year and song of the year.

Her album, 21, came in at number one on the Billboard albums chart this week, for the nineteenth nonconsecutive time.
