By now you all know how much I love legendary diva of stage and screen, Liza Minnelli (still kickin’ at age 65), so watch her open the 2011 TV Land Awards below with one of her signature songs, New York, New York. The entire show airs this coming Sunday (April 17th) at 9PM on TV Land. You know anything that opens with a Liza moment is bound to be good (except for Sex and The City 2).
Renowned singer and actress Liza Minnelli starts off the TV Land Awards 2011 with a bang on Sunday, April 17 at 9 PM ET/PT with a rousing performance of her classic hit New York, New York! For the first time ever in the show’s nine-year history, the awards were held in good old New York, and television’s finest came out to celebrate.
