Mariah Carey and Jussie Smollett duet in new 'Empire' teaser - WATCH

2016-10-03
Empire is known for booking the biggest names - Naomi Campbell, for example - to guest star in the smash hit musical drama. And this week's episode will be no different, with none other than living legend Mariah Carey teaming up with music's most famous fictional family. Carey, whose reality docuseries Mariah's World kicks off in December, plays “mega-superstar” Kitty in the episode - which we're sure will be something of a stretch for the world-renowned muscial icon.
