For two seasons, Timbaland provided the musical score for FOX’s “Empire,” but now, two other musical heavyweights are moving in. Timbo is stepping down as music supervising producer and Rodney Jerkins is stepping in. Hitmaking songwriter Ester Dean is also stepping in to provide the lyrical content.
John Legend brought in Stevie Wonder, Stephen Merchant (the “announcer”), and puppets for one of the most epic syncs of Outkast’s 2003 hit “Hey Ya!” Legend went all out with the green set, background singers/dancers, the straight bob wig, suspenders, even a fake mole to look as much like Andre 3000 as he could.
Queen Bey did not come here to play with you, h**s. She came to slay, b*tch. Last night (Aug. 28), Beyonce showed who’s boss by performing a medley of five songs from her Lemonade album. Her set took place mid-show, but probably should have been scheduled towards the end, because the caliber of her performance left little else to want.
