Back in 1977, she sang "Evergreen," the theme from "A Star Is Born," on the telecast. The tune, which Streisand co-wrote, won the Academy Award for Best Original Song that year. Streisand also starred in the film.

It's already been announced that this year's Oscars, which will air on ABC February 24, will include a tribute to movie musicals, and performances by not only Adele, but also Norah Jones.
