First Adele, then Norah Jones, and now two-time Academy Award winner Barbra Streisand. That’s what we call an all-star lineup.

On Wednesday (January 30), Oscar producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron announced that the 70-year-old will take the award show stage after taking a 36 year break.

“In an evening that celebrates the artistry of movies and music how could the telecast be complete without Barbra Streisand? 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,” the two stated in a press release.

Streisand won her first Oscar for Best Actress in “Funny Girl” back in 1968 and was nominated again in 1973 for her role in “The Way We Were.”
