Earlier this month, it was reported that Mariah Carey would appear on the upcoming third season of Empire playing a pop star named Kitty who visit the label for a duet with Jamal Lyon (Jussie Smollett). She helps him overcome personal issues, and the result is an emotional duet.
Now, FOX has released a trailer for the forthcoming season (which begins on Sept. 21st), and we can see a bit of how Carey’s character Kitty fits into the story line.
At one point in the trailer, she says “You always got a trick up your sleeve,” then for a split second, we see her and Jamal in the studio.
Carey’s episode will air on Wednesday, Oct. 5th, 9 pm ET.
