Empire Season 3 will include guest-starring role and performance by Mariah Carey. This is quite a achievement for the show. Mariah is the best-selling female recording artist of all time!

Empire Season 3 is set to premiere on Fox on Wednesday September 21st 2016 but we will have to wait until October 5th to see Mariah. She is playing Kitty, a mega-superstar who comes to Empire to collaborate with Jamal Lyon (Jussie Smollett).

Along the way the duet encounters obstacles with their explosive new song. As a result Kitty has to help Jamal dig deep to overcome some personal difficulties. Together we hope they will reach a musical breakthrough!
