LOS ANGELES, Aug. 26 (UPI) — Empire is giving fans a first glimpse of guest star Mariah Carey.
The Fox series released a new Season 3 teaser this week featuring the 46-year-old singer as the character Kitty.
The preview sees Kitty appear to address an offscreen Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson), remarking, “You always have a trick up your sleeve.” It also shows the character in the recording studio with Jamal Lyon (Jussie Smollett).
“It’s not going to be Mariah Carey,” she said. “We’ve had a couple of conversations and I think she is going to be pretty glamorous, but I don’t know. We’ll see.”
Carey has also collaborated with Empire creator Lee Daniels on his movies Precious and The Butler. The singer previously appeared on Ally McBeal and voiced characters on American Dad.
