Anyone (in the know) can tell us what Barbra is going to sing at the Oscars ?

It's been so quiet - think they really want it to be a big surprise.

Whatever it is, it will be complete and utter torture.

Hollywood Reporter:

Once they realized that movie music would be the show’s unifying theme, the two producers say they knew they also had to go to Streisand, whom they’ve both known for years. “She hasn’t sung on the show in 36 years, and she has only sung once before,” says Zadan. “So we went to her right away and explained our concept for the show.” They won’t reveal exactly what Streisand will perform. “During the course of the show, at some point, Barbra Streisand is going to come on and do something really special and blow people away,” Zadan teases.

A GYPSY showstopper: "Everythings Coming Up Roses" or "Roses Turn".

She could still get away with that Magical Special Guest thang a few years ago. But her voice has declined, and she seems everywhere lately. She's in danger of heading into Liza territory: everyone endures it and claps politely, because their mom told them she used to be big.

by Bruce Vilanchreply 602/20/2013

She'll be singing "My Heart Will Go On." I've pre-ordered my ortolan.

Vanity Fair:

Barbra Streisand is performing this year. She is famously particular about what angles she is filmed from and other performance details . . . Has she given you any feedback about the sets for her number?

We showed her the design for the [number] that she is doing, and she was enormously enthusiastic. I’ve only heard positive things from her and am absolutely looking forward to seeing her onstage.

by Bruce Vilanchreply 802/20/2013

She seemed incapable of singing Evergreen on some show a couple of years ago. She sang it whispery, like Peggy Lee in her twilight years.

by Bruce Vilanchreply 902/20/2013

I'm thinking a full Funny Girl/Hello Dolly/Clear Day/Yentl medley.

The Way We Were against the montage of corpses.

She's going to issue an apology to those who bought tickets to see The Guilt Trip.

R11 is correct

by Bruce Vilanchreply 1302/20/2013

They're worried about her pitch problems, so it was decided it was be best if she performed a tribute to Philip Glass.

BARBRA STREISAND is sparing no expense to make sure her first Academy Awards performance since 1977 is one that nobody will ever forget.

To achieve that goal, sources say she’s undergoing a million-dollar makeover!

In preparation for her Feb. 24 performance, the 70-year-old legend of stage and screen has hired personal trainers and a nutritionist, and flown in “facial specialists” from Europe. She’s also installed a state-of-the-art gym, a performance studio and a meditation room in her Malibu mansion and ordered several custom designer gowns so she has options for the big night.

“All told, Barbra will have spent almost $1 million,” said a source, adding that the “Guilt Trip” star wants to drop at least 20 pounds from her 5-foot-5 frame.

And after years of saying she’d never undergo plastic surgery, Barbra has reportedly been flying to New York to visit the office of Dr. Patricia Wexler for “facial fat transplantation” procedures. This involves taking fat from a patient’s thighs and injecting it into the face to fill wrinkles.

“She also brings in facial experts from Europe regularly and will have them on-call throughout Oscarweek,” continued the source.

Since Babs intends to be dressed to the nines for the show, she’s asked her close friend, designer Donna Karan to create “at least five one-of-a-kind couture gowns,” which will cost at least $100,000.

She’s also been tuning up her vocals in her new home recording studio and meditating in her yoga studio to calm her famously jittery nerves.

Said the source: “Barbra’s spending a million dollars to make sure that her Oscar night performance is perfect – for herself and for everyone else.”

After that, an army of experts invaded her house on Sunset Boulevard. She went through a merciless series of treatments, massages, sweat cabinets, baths, ice compresses, electric devices. She lived on vegetable juices and went to bed at nine. She was determined to be ready... ready for those cameras that would never turn.

by Bruce Vilanchreply 1602/20/2013

Barbra has said that she's wearing a turban on Oscar night.

by Bruce Vilanchreply 1702/20/2013

"... sources say she’s undergoing a million-dollar makeover!"

Hello, Gorgeous!

by Bruce Vilanchreply 1802/20/2013

Riffing off # 16 - have never understood why she doesn't forget about "Gypsy", and do an amazing Norma Desmond, in the film version of "Sunset Blvd." Yes, it'd be creepy, but the music is great, and she could have a great young love interest in 'Joe' - I say Bradley Cooper.

by Bruce Vilanchreply 1902/20/2013

LOL, R15. Barbra does not need to have fat transferred to her face because she is already SO FAT all over.

by Bruce Vilanchreply 2002/20/2013

Because the female lead in Sunset Blvd. has to be someone who could have been a star in the silent era.

Barbra could not possibly have been one of the silent greats.

by Bruce Vilanchreply 2102/20/2013

[quote]have never understood why she doesn't forget about "Gypsy", and do an amazing Norma Desmond, in the film version of "Sunset Blvd."

Obviously, it's because she IS Norma Desmond.. she has no need to play the part on stage or on the screen when she lives it every day of her life.

by Bruce Vilanchreply 2202/20/2013

She's going to sing "Locked Out Of Heaven"

by Bruce Vilanchreply 2302/20/2013

It's been confirmed she will sing Born This Way and then follow up with All the Single Ladies.

by Bruce Vilanchreply 2402/20/2013

She will be singing with Jennifer Hudson and CZJ. Indeed.

by Bruce Vilanchreply 2502/20/2013

I could on hope she would do "Don't Rain On My Parade"

by Bruce Vilanchreply 2602/20/2013

I'm hoping she comes out in a Snow White costume with Rob Lowe.

by Bruce Vilanchreply 2702/20/2013

Marvin what's his name died last year so she'll be singing a tribute to him. The Way We Were, no doubt.

by Bruce Vilanchreply 2802/20/2013

She'll be singing THE LION SLEEPS TONIGHT with the Cast of Glee. I am only guessing, but the Nose Knows!

I heard she's doing a duet of Gangnam Style with PSI.

by Bruce Vilanchreply 3002/20/2013

She'll sing "Putting It Together" while they show B-roll of the making of all the Best Picture nominees.

by Bruce Vilanchreply 3102/20/2013

Wow! I guess all of the 'Barbra Queens' are asleep right now. Usually they sniff out a derogatory remark about their Goddess and pounce on anyone who dares insult Barbie Girl. No one is defending Barbra... YET! Be prepared to be skinned alive when they awake... and you KNOW they will. They are like vampires, they awake and attack. Those queens are fucking vicious when their glittery-dressed old lady is insulted. Run to the hills, run for your lives!

by Bruce Vilanchreply 3202/20/2013

Barbra will stride on to the stage, hike her dress, pinch a loaf and then take a bow. Or maybe she'll just sing. Tomato/tomatoe.

by Bruce Vilanchreply 3302/20/2013

I hope she does a duet wil Lil Wayne. Her music needs some updating.

by Bruce Vilanchreply 3402/20/2013

[quote]And after years of saying she’d never undergo plastic surgery

huh? The Enquirer had pictures of her leaving a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon after a face lift years ago....she's been cut and pasted

by Bruce Vilanchreply 3502/20/2013

She had a tuck-and-tighten done before she did her first FOKKERS film - that's why she wore that huge turtleneck for her "Inside the Actor's Studio" (was Bradley Cooper in that audience too?)

Def. a tribute to Hamlisch/"The Way We Were" as lead-in to the In Memoriam sequence.

by Bruce Vilanchreply 3602/20/2013

Barbra will be performing with Liza Minnelli and Eminem. Rumor has it that they will performing "Disco Duck", complete with a Busby Berkley-style dance production. Barbra, being the star, gets to wear the yellow duck suit. Can't wait.

by Bruce Vilanchreply 3702/21/2013

[quote]She also brings in facial experts from Europe regularly

So do we. They're called Czech porn stars.

by Bruce Vilanchreply 3802/21/2013

She's going to open the show by singing The Main Event.

by Bruce Vilanchreply 3902/21/2013

She and Ryan could reprise their duet of "You're the Top."

by Bruce Vilanchreply 4002/21/2013

It will be a tribute to Donna Summer, who passed in May '12: Last Dance; Hot Stuff; I Feel Love; MacArthur Park and a duet of Enough Is Enough with son Jason.

by Bruce Vilanchreply 4102/21/2013

"Sell a fucking lamp" !

by Bruce Vilanchreply 4202/21/2013

She and Adele will do a duet, trying to out-sing each other. Thats why Adele could not leave the rehearsals to fly to London to collect her Brit award.

They might do a new version of No More Tears as a tribute to Donna ...

by Bruce Vilanchreply 4302/21/2013

The Best (or Worst) of "Glee"

by Bruce Vilanchreply 4402/21/2013

My almost former-mutha-in-law told me she would be performing Bloodhound Gang's "Bad Touch", followed by 2-Live Crew's "Me So Horny" at the ceremony.

"You and me babe we ain't nothin' but mammals, so let's do it like they do on the Discovery Channel...Get horny now!"

by Bruce Vilanchreply 4502/21/2013

[r42] ... lol, just saw that last night!

by Bruce Vilanchreply 4602/21/2013

Khia has produced Barbra's first foray into rap, the soon-to-be released "Str8 Outta Maliboo". She'll be covering this for her first single.

by Bruce Vilanchreply 4702/21/2013

Word from rehearsals is that she's singing the tired, old "The Way We Were" again during the Dead Celebrities section. She must be trying to kill her career.

by Bruce Vilanchreply 4802/22/2013

R31, I think you're on to something.

Either that, or this new Alan & Marilyn Bergman song of which I heard a demo a few weeks ago but hasn't yet been released. I think it's called "Insufferable."

by Bruce Vilanchreply 4902/22/2013

[quote] Either that, or this new Alan & Marilyn Bergman song of which I heard a demo a few weeks ago but hasn't yet been released. I think it's called "Insufferable."

Ah, so perhaps she'll be singing that in the background during Anne Hathaway's acceptance speech.
