Multi-Grammy winning superstar, Mariah Carey makes her appearance on Fox’s sudsy Empire (9PMET/8CT) tonight! Mariah plays the role of Kitty – a hit singer – brought in by none other than Cookie (Taraji P, Henson) to team with her son Jamal on a hot new duet.
Problem is … Jamal (Jussie Smollett) is getting addicted to painkillers which gives Jussie Smollett meaty story material during Empire’s new season.
In the clip released to promote Carey’s guest-star turn, she is seen in studio trying to cut the duet with Jamal, but he struggles, and Kitty (Mariah Carey) wants to just get the song in the can. The duet “Infamous” is indeed a new single duet from Carey and Smollett, to boot.
Watch the clip from Empire after the jump. Then let us know if you are looking forward to seeing Mariah on Empire Wednesday night in the comment section below, and if you like the musical icon guest appearances on the primetime soaps!
