At long last, it appears Mariah Carey is finally coming to “Empire.” The show has teased her potential guest spot seemingly since its inception, but now, at last, it appears the R&B legend is finally coming to the silver screen.
Carey will take on the role of Kitty, an expert musician enlisted to help Jamal, played by the incomparable Jussie Smollett, regain his mojo as a singer. Smollett told Entertainment Weekly that “[Working with Mariah] was great. She’s a sweetheart. She’s a professional and, you know, this is a long time coming.”
Listen to Smollett and Carey’s duet, “Infamous,” recorded for next week’s episode, below.
Carey’s new E! show, “Mariah’s World,” debuts December 4 at 9 PM EST.
“Empire” airs Wednesdays at 9 PM on Fox.
