NEW YORK, April 11 (UPI) -- Liza Minnelli opened the TV Land Awards show at Manhattan's Jacob Javits Center with a performance of her signature song "New York New York."

Among the attendees at the weekend event were Barbara Walters, Stevie Wonder, Ben Stiller, Jane Lynch, Paul Reiser, Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves, Wendie Malick and the cast of "The Real Housewives of New York."

The celebrities were on hand to honor talk-show host Regis Philbin, recording artists Daryl Hall and John Oates and the casts of the sitcoms "The Cosby Show," "Family Ties," "Welcome Back, Kotter" and "The Facts of Life."

Other highlights of the ceremony included Stevie Wonder's impromptu performance of "Higher Ground," Billy Vera singing "At This Moment" and a parody of the Oscar-winning film "The King's Speech" featuring Susan Olsen as Cindy Brady, the character who famously overcame a lisp in an episode of 1970s sitcom "The Brady Bunch."

The show is to air on TV Land April 17.
