Barbra Streisand will also perform at this year’s Grammy Awards, alongside other big acts including Mick Jagger and Gwyneth Paltrow. The Grammys will air on Sunday, February 13th on CBS.

Barbra, who was introduced by Prince (???) at this evening’s main event said, “I love music for what it does for the soul… It syncs with the rhythm of our hearts.”

Someone Tweeted that Barbra sang the entire first half of “Windmills of Your Mind” a capella, stating Streisand’s set was long and amazing and a real crowd-pleaser.

Undoubtedly, what must have been the best line of the night?  Streisand reportedly said, “My niece recently watched a DVD of Funny Girl for the first time and asked me why I was singing songs from Glee.”  [Special thanks to @BHSushi for posting these great tidbits!]

Don’t expect to see Streisand belt with the kids of Glee anytime soon, however.  ET’s Nancy O’Dell got the scoop
on her feelings about Glee‘s renditions of her songs and asked if she would ever consider doing the show. “Not if I can help it,” Barbra replied. “She’s pretty good,” Streisand said of Lea Michele.

Oh, come on Barbra!  It’d be fun!

Follow @MissMusicNerd for a blow by blow account of the evening.  Inexplicably, the event was not streamed on “Grammy Live” to the chagrin of everyone who tuned in only to get stuck watching recaps of past Grammy nights on the much hyped Grammy / YouTube  “live” page.
