NEW YORK (AP) — Barbra Streisand has some advice for Jimmy Fallon — don’t give up your night job.

Streisand made her first appearance in decades on the “Tonight Show” last night. Fallon noted she was last on the show 50 years ago, when Johnny Carson was the host.

Her new album of duets, “Partners” is out today.

Streisand and Fallon did a duet parody, with Fallon doing Elvis’ part.

Streisand jokingly asked if he really wants to be a singer.

Streisand was Fallon’s only guest and he insisted she sit in the host’s chair at the desk. Fallon joked she might as well, because she’ll never be coming back.

Streisand’s last appearance on the “Tonight Show” was back in 1963 when Johnny Carson was host. At the time, Streisand was promoting her debut album. She has since gone on to record more than 50 albums.
