The British singer attended the Golden Globes for her first public appearance since becoming a mum last year, where Skyfall won in the Best Original Song category.

Before the ceremony, the 24-year-old music star admitted to E!'s Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet that she was worried about living up to the "responsibility" of providing a 007 song.

"I got the script a long time ago and it took quite a while to convince me to do the actual song," she said.

"It's a big responsibility doing a Bond song. Paul McCartney's done it, Shirley Bassey's the queen of them. I was worried I was going to let everybody down by doing it.

"But I got convinced and I loved the script and I think Sam Mendes is just incredible. Daniel Craig is a gorgeous Bond... It paid off and everyone loved it."

She said of recording the track - which has also been nominated for an Oscar - with a 77-piece orchestra: "It was absolutely amazing. I was very pregnant and I was very emotional. It was very exciting, epic and I felt like Frank Sinatra."
