You might not think  Ne-Yo and Barbra Streisand have many fans in common.

But just wait until next month when Streisand is honored at the Kennedy Center Honors gala.

I've just got word that Ne-Yo will be one of the performers paying tribute to the legendary diva. Yes, the 26-year-old R&B crooner will be singing a Streisand tune, according to a source.

He's not the only performer I'm hearing about...

Queen Latifah is thisclose to also singing for Babs, another source tells me.

Beyoncé Knowles recently confirmed she's on the Streisand bill. She'll be belting out "The Way We Were."

Knowles and Latifah performed at the Kennedy Centers Honors three years ago for honoree Tina Turner.

Streisand, Morgan Freeman, choreographer Twyla Tharp and Pete Townsend and Roger Daltrey of the Who will be honored at the 31st annual gala in Washington, D.C. on Dec. 7. The star-studded affair, hosted by Caroline Kennedy, airs on CBS on Dec. 30.

Reps for Ne-Yo and Latifah did not comment.
