Barbra Streisand to Perform at the Grammy Awards

The iconic Barbra Streisand, 68, will do a rare performance at the 53rd annual Grammy Awards on Sunday, February 13th. In her five-decade career, the notoriously stage-shy legend rarely does public performances save for charities, and has only toured four times.

The eight-time Grammy winner is also nominated in best traditional pop vocal album category for her latest record, Love is the Answer.

Streisand will also be feted at the 2011 Musicares Person of the Year for her "creative accomplishments and philanthropy".

Babs will be joined by other performers at the Grammy’s including Sir Mick Jagger, Eminem, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry among other artists. This will be Jagger’s first performance at the awards. He is scheduled to pay tribute to the late soul singer Solomon Burke.

"I am singing and talking for about 12 to 15 minutes," Streisand said in a phone interview with the LA Times apropos of her Musicares honour and the Grammy performance.

Previously announced presenters include Miley Cyrus, John Legend, Kris Kristofferson Selena Gomez, Norah Jones, LL Cool J, Nicki Minaj, and Blake Shelton.

In addition to her eight Grammy wins, Streisand won two Oscars, four Emmy Awards, and a Tony. She is one of the most commercially and critically successful entertainers in entertainment history, and has sold approximately 140 million albums worldwide.
