Mariah Carey Joins ‘Empire’ Season 3

Empire has cast one of the biggest stars in the music industry for Season 3: Mariah Carey will be featured in a guest-starring role in the FOX hit. And that’s not all!

Mariah will also perform on Empire this season. She will play the role of Kitty, a “mega-superstar who comes to Empire to collaborate with Jamal Lyon (Jussie Smollett) on an explosive new song.” However, when the duet plans hit a snag, “Kitty helps Jamal dig deep to overcome personal difficulties and reach a musical breakthrough.”

Mariah’s guest-spot on the show will air Wednesday, Oct. 5 on FOX. She joins a cast of guest stars for Season 3 that includes Taye Diggs, Sierra McClain, French Montana and Birdman, who will be playing himself.

This should be an interesting addition to the cast, if nothing else. And given Mariah’s Billboard cred, she might end up getting the show its best-selling single. Either way, I’m stoked for Empire Season 3, which will be premiering on September 21. Get hyped!
