What a beautiful group!
We can feel the love!
We almost EXPLODED from ecstasy overload after finding out that Babz would be returning to the Oscars stage for the first time in an AGE to perform a special musical number, but our curiosity concerning WHAT she'd be singing has proven almost unbearable…
Barbra Streisand singing "Memories" during in memoriam at #oscars. This is gonna b powerful!

YES YES YES YES YES YES YES!!!
Memories is a Babz CLASSIC and sweetly rips at our insides every time we hear it!
Ch-ch-check out a vintage Barbra singing Memories live (above)!
If you are unfortunately uninformed about Memories or the movie it originally came from, The Way We Were, then let us illuminate you: The Way We Were starred a young Barbra Streisand and Robert Redford as a couple who fall in love but can never quite seem to satisfy one another.
We don't want to spoil the ending, but trust us, it's a poignant, emotional experience about relationships and identity!
SO insanely THRILLED by this song choice for Sunday's Oscars! Someone fetch the smelling salts cause we are straight swooning over here!
