"In an evening that celebrates the artistry of movies and music, how could the telecast be complete without Barbra Streisand?" producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron said in a statement. "We are honored that she has agreed to do a very special performance on this year's Oscars, her first time singing on the show in 36 years."
Streisand, 70, last performed in 1977 when she won the Best Original Song Oscar for "Evergreen" from the film A Star Is Born. Streisand previously won the Best Actress award for her role in 1968's Funny Girl and has since been nominated for The Way We Were in 1973, for producing The Prince of Tides in 1991 and in 1996 for co-writing the song "I Finally Found Someone" from The Mirror Has Two Faces.
Are you excited for her performance?
