It’s so nice to see Barbra Streisand back where she belongs: the Oscar stage.

After 36 years, Babs will grace the Academy Awards stage for a special performance. No word yet on what that will entail.

Barbra last performed on the awards show in 1977 when she sang “Evergreen” from A Star Is Born, which won the Best Original Song statue later that same night. This was Barbra’s second win. She won her first Oscar in 1968 taking home the Best Actress statue for Funny Girl.

This year’s award’s show will also include performances from Adele and Norah Jones, both of whom are nominated for Best Original Song.

Watch Barbra take the stage for the 85th Academy Awards, hosted by Seth MacFarlane, February 24 on ABC.
