Liza Presents Rolex Dance Award to Ann-Margret
At the Career Transition for Dancers Gala, held Tuesday, Oct. 8, at New York's City Center, living legend Liza Minnelli presented her friend Ann-Margret with the 2013 Rolex Dance Award, the same award Minnelli was given at last year's event.
Among her remarks, Liza was going to say (according to her publicist Scott Gorenstein), "I may be her biggest fan ... along with 32 million other people. Why? Because of who she is and how she makes us feel. I remember seeing her in a movie with Elvis Presley, and for the first time I was not looking at Elvis the entire time. I was looking at her!"

After being introduced and beginning her tribute to Ann-Margret, a technical miscue occurred and the curtains rose to reveal Ann-Margret before Liza had a chance to properly finish her remarks.

Momentarily taken aback, Liza exclaimed, “Damn! I stayed up all night writing this!” and flashed her speech for all to see. Ann-Margret embraced Liza and said to her, “Can you believe the two of us are still alive?!”
