Barbra Streisand just upped the ante of this year’s Tony Awards. The icon, who hasn’t appeared on the Tony Awards stage since 1970, when she won an honorary “Star of the Decade” award, has been revealed as a presenter for this year’s ceremony. She’s in good company: The 2016 show presenter list also includes Cate Blanchett, Steve Martin, Saoirse Ronan and Oprah Winfrey. James Corden, a past Tony Award winner, will host.

The awards ceremony will take place on June 12 at the Beacon Theatre in New York, and be broadcast live on CBS. “Hamilton” set a record for nominations this year, garnering 16 across all categories, including two for best performance by an actor in a leading role in a musical.
