The announcement was made moments ago at the Television Critics Association Press Tour in Beverly Hills by Dana Walden, CEO of Fox Television Group and David Madden, President of Fox Broadcasting Company.
Per a network press release: “Carey will play Kitty, a mega-superstar who comes to Empire to collaborate with Jamal Lyon (Jussie Smollett) on an explosive new song. When the duet encounters obstacles, Kitty helps Jamal dig deep to overcome personal difficulties and reach a musical breakthrough.”
Carey — one of the biggest selling female artists of all time — is also set to star in the eight part doc-series MARIAH’S WORLD.
Previously announced guests for the upcoming season of EMPIRE include: Taye Diggs, Sierra McClain, French Montana and Birdman
EMPIRE returns September 21 on Fox.
