Don't call it a comeback!

Two big names will be taking to the stage after years of taking time off from music. First up: Barbra Streisand.

The legendary singer and actress is set to perform at the Oscars for the first time in 36 years with a "very special performance" that will pay tribute to music and movies.

Streisand, who last performed at the Oscars in 1977 to sing "A Star is Born," will be a welcome addition to the February 24 telecast, according to show producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron.

“In an evening that celebrates the artistry of movies and music, how could the telecast be complete without Barbra Streisand?" said the producers. "We are honored that she has agreed to do a very special performance on this year’s Oscars, her first time singing on the show in 36 years."

The other big name to step back into music is Justin Timberlake, who will be bringing his "Suit and Tie" to the Grammys.

Timberlake, who has taken time off in recent years to focus on business ventures and his acting career, will perform at the awards show for the first time in four years. The jack-of-all-trades star broke news of his third upcoming solo album, "The 20/20 Experience," earlier this month.
