Liza Minnelli will be making us laugh and cheer in 2013.

The actress, already booked to reprise the role of Lucille 2 on Arrested Development, will also guest star on a midseason episode of Smash.

In news broken by New York Magazine, the Broadway legend will appear on the installment titled "The Surprise Party" and sing a duet with Tom (Christian Borle).

Smash Season 2 kicks off on February 5 and will feature such other big names as Jennifer Hudson, Jesse L. Martin, Jeremy Jordan and Sean Hayes.

Ok, so, to clarify--by "as herself" does this mean she'll actually be playing "Liza Minnelli," or will it be the Bernadette Peters/Leigh Conroy type of thing where they make her play a fictional approximation of herself? It's weird how the show decides to incorporate some aspects of real-life Broadway but not others.
