Flu may keep Streisand from singing at Grammys

Grammy nominee Barbra Streisand is recuperating from the flu, which could keep her from performing at the award show Wednesday night with Celine Dion.

"Her doctor is not yet able to determine if the illness will prevent her performance at the awards ceremonies," Dick Guttman, her spokesman in Beverly Hills., Calif., said in a release Sunday night.Streisand, 55, had a fever and was being treated with antibiotics, he said.

She is nominated for two Grammys - one with Dion for their duet "Tell Him" and another for "I Finally Found Someone," from Streisand's film "The Mirror Has Two Faces."

Streisand apparently came down with the flu Friday, the day after her boyfriend, James Brolin, allegedly attacked a newspaper photographer outside a theater.
