Singer/actress Liza Minnelli is heading to the small screen to make a guest appearance on hit music drama Smash.

The TV show revolves around the creation of a Broadway musical and now producers have recruited real-life theatre icon Minnelli to star and perform an original song with actor Christian Borle during an episode entitled The Surprise Party, which will air next spring.

Executive Robert Greenblatt says, "Liza Minnelli is the essence of a multi-talented, singular show business sensation, particularly for her extraordinary contributions to Broadway. So what could be more fitting than to have her legendary talent on a show that celebrates a world Liza has dazzled for decades?"

Minnelli won't be the only celebrity featuring in the program's upcoming second season - Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson is also slated to join the cast.
