STAR’s Queen Latifah to Appear on EMPIRE and EMPIRE’s Jussie Smollett to Appear on STAR
On an epic night of music and drama, Carlotta (Queen Latifah) comes face-to-face with Cookie (Taraji P. Henson), Lucious (Terrence Howard) and Jamal Lyon (Jussie Smollett), as the worlds of EMPIRE and STAR collide Wednesday, Sept. 27 on FOX.

The night kicks off with EMPIRE (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). On the brink of Empire Entertainment’s 20th anniversary, Lucious is making his first public appearance after the explosion in Las Vegas, while all members of the Lyon family, as well as Lucious’ nurse, Claudia (guest star Demi Moore), have their own interests in Lucious regaining his physical and mental faculties. Then, on STAR (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), the girls – with Carlotta as their manager – continue to face roadblocks, despite their victory at Atlanta NextFest.
