Oscars 2013: Barbra Streisand to Perform for First Time in 36 Years

The two-time Academy Award winner will give "a very special performance."

Barbra Streisand will perform at this year's Academy Awards, taking the Oscar stage for the first time in 36 years.

"In an evening that celebrates the artistry of movies and music, how could the telecast be complete without Barbra Streisand?" said the ceremony's producers, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, in a statement Wednesday. "We are honored that she has agreed to do a very special performance."

No word on what that entails. Streisand, who starred in the 2012 comedy The Guilt Trip opposite Seth Rogen, last performed at the Academy Awards in 1977, when she sang "Evergreen" from A Star Is Born, for which she shared the best original song Oscar with lyricist Paul Williams.

The legendary entertainer also scored a best actress Oscar for 1968's Funny Girl. She was nominated in 1973 for her role in The Way We Were and later for producing 1991's The Prince of Tides, a best picture contender, as well as co-writing the song "I Finally Found Someone" from 1996's The Mirror Has Two Faces. She also has won eight Grammys, four Emmys and a special Tony Award in 1970.

The Oscars will be presented Feb. 24 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.
