Barbra Streisand will take the stage at the Oscars on February 24.

Get your DVR ready because Barbra Streisand is singing at the Oscars! Streisand will perform at the Academy Awards ceremony on February 24. 

Streisand has not performed at the Academy Awards in 36 years. Her first and only Oscar performance was singing the love theme from A Star is Born back in 1977. The diva won her first Oscar for the movie musical Funny Girl in 1968 and a subsequent trophy for "Evergreen" in 1977. Her other movie musical credit is starring in the film adaptation of the Broadway musical Hello, Dolly! Streisand is also planning to star in a new film version of Gypsy. Could it be Babs will appear on the telecast as be part of the previously announced tribute to movie musicals?

“In an evening that celebrates the artistry of movies and music how could the telecast be complete without Barbra Streisand?” said Oscars producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron in a statement.

The 85th Academy Awards, hosted by Seth MacFarlane,  will be broadcast live on February 24 on ABC. 

In honor of Babs' big return to the Oscars, here's a clip of the Funny Girl song we hope she chooses to perform live.
