Barbra Streisand is set to make somewhat of a comeback next month with reports that the singer and actress will be performing at the Oscars for the first time in 36 years.
The legendary 'Woman In Love' singer will be taking to the stage at the Academy Awards on February 24th for the first time in 36 years, with her appearance no doubt set to bring back momentous memories for the entertainer.

Streisand last performed at the Oscars in 1977 when she sung 'Evergreen', the theme for 'A Star Is Born' which also earned her an award for the Best Original Song with Paul Williams. Streisand has also won a Best Actress Oscar for her role in 'Funny Girl.'
Academy Award producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron said in a statement: “In an evening that celebrates the artistry of movies and music, how could the telecast be complete without Barbra Streisand?”
“We are honoured 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.”
Details of the performance are being kept under wraps but the singer will no doubt put on a show! Perhaps Streisand can offer some words of encouragement to Adele, who is also set to perform during the ceremony, singing the James Bond theme track 'Skyfall.'
Similar to Streisand's previous win, Adele is hoping to take home the Best Original Song award for the ballad, which was co-written by Paul Epworth.
