Liza Minnelli to guest star on second season of NBC's 'Smash'

By Gina DiFalco,

Liza Minnelli will guest star on NBC’s Smash in its second season.

Minnelli will play herself in an episode that will air next year called "The Surprise Party." She will even sing an original song with Tony-award winner Christian Borle, written by Smash composers Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, EW reports.

NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt said in a statement of the Oscar, Tony, Grammy and Emmy award winner "Liza Minnelli is the essence of a multi-talented, singular show business sensation, particularly for her extraordinary contributions to Broadway.”

Greenblatt continued, "So what could be more fitting than to have her legendary talent on a show that celebrates a world Liza has dazzled for decades? I had the pleasure of working with Liza when we restored her landmark television special 'Liza With a Z' at Showtime, and to see her artistry up close and personal is a thing to behold,” HitFix reports.

The second season of the show will premiere on Tuesday, February 5 and other guest stars include Jennifer Hudson, Jesse L. Martin and Sean Hayes.
