Contestants on 'Today's Voice' Pay Tribute to Guest Judge Liza Minnelli (VIDEO)

Today's Voice competition on 'Today'It's not often that reality show contestants kiss up celebrity judges in three-part harmony, but it happened Wednesday on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC). It was the final elimination round on 'Today's Voice,' a singing competition inspired by the hit show 'The Voice,' and Liza Minnelli returned once again a guest judge.

There were three contestants left, singing 'New York, New York,' which Minnelli sang in Martin Scorsese's 1977 film of the same name. They used the original closing lines, but added a lyrical twist: "If I can make it there, I'll make it anywhere/Come on come through, New York/This song was made famous by Liza Minnelli."

That made Minnelli so happy, she burst into song herself, making a little coda of "My little town blues." They may have missed out on any competitive edge resulting from the flattery, though: No one has an advantage if they all do it.

Sorry, this is Frank's song. Don't care who did it first. Besides all Liza ever did was screach and shout out her songs. Frank own this song lock, stock and baarrel.

I doubt the contestants know who Frank Sinatra is. Cuz, he's, like, dead.
