Smash Books Liza Minnelli as Season Two Guest Star—and She'll Be Singing, Too!

SATC 2, Sex and the City 2 Movie, Liza Minnelli Craig Blankenhorn/MMIX New Line Productions, Inc.

You cannot get more Broadway than this.

Legend/superstar Liza Minnelli will guest star on an episode of Smash in season two, NBC announced today. The Tony, Oscar, Golden Globe, Grammy and Emmy award-winner (EGOT!) will play herself and sing an original song with Tom (Christian Borle).

"Liza Minnelli is the essence of a multi-talented, singular show business sensation, particularly for her extraordinary contributions to Broadway," NBC Chairman Robert Greenblatt said in a statement. "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."

Minnelli's episode, titled "The Surprise Party" is set to air in Spring 2013. Smash returns with its second season on Thursday, Feb. 5.
