Celebrity singer Shirley Bassey will open the BAFTA film awards with the James Bond tribute.

Bassey has long been associated with 007, holding the record for most Bond songs by the song “Goldfinger” in 1964, “Diamonds Are Forever” in 1971, and “Moonraker” in 1979.

The British Academy noted that in the 60 years since Dr. No premiered in 1962, the James Bond franchise had earned 32 BAFTA nominations and four wins to date.

The singer will perform “an iconic Bond theme” although which one will only be revealed on the night.

This year’s BAFTA Awards will celebrate a number of iconic British film franchises, including Bond and Harry Potter.

Also performing on the night will be Emilia Jones, star of awards darling CODA. Jones — who has a BAFTA nomination for best actress in a leading role — will perform a rendition of Joni Mitchell’s balled “Both Sides Now,” taken from the film.

“CODA” lead Emilia Jones is also set to perform during the ceremony with a rendition of “Both Sides Now” by Joni Mitchell.

The BAFTA Awards will take place in London on March 13.
