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!
