Empire: Mariah Carey to make appearance on hit Tv show

In March, Jussie Smollet, who plays Jamal on the hit show, took to Instagram to beg Mariah Carey to come on Empire.

Apparently, his wish has been granted.

"Watch her on Empire, you guys, She's coming on Empire," Lee Daniels, the hit show's co-creater told a crowd that had gathered at the event.

Empire will make it the fourth time Mariah Carey is working with Lee Daniels. They had previously worked together on the films Precious, Tennessee and Lee Daniels' The Butler. The casting decision was one that many were waiting for, as Daniels helped Carey resurrect her big screen career with her stripped-down role in 2009's Precious.

The Oscar-nominated director's relationship with Mariah goes a long way back to the first film he directed, 2005's Shadowboxer, where he was introduced to the singer by a mutual friend.

"I stopped everything I was doing to make sure that I was here for you, because you've always been there for me, Mariah, before Lee Daniels was Lee Daniels," Daniels said at today's Walk of Fame ceremony. "I love you with all my heart. I'm so proud of you."

Daniels went on to call out what most people were thinking.

"I thought you already had a star on the Walk of Fame," Daniels said. "You deserved one a long time ago."

In fact, Carey's star has been in the works since 2007, according to Time, but has taken eight years to get everything just right.
