God didn’t need no help, neither do I…- Lucious Lyon
Is it just me, or was that green beauty face mask on the “white wife” no one seems to care for on FOX’s “Empire” a foreshadowing of her demise?
We already know Andre is unraveling because he flushed his meds, but who’s going to get the blame for his psych hold? Yep. It feels like Rhonda’s days are numbered from the promos. The love of a good black woman (Hudson?) will save ‘Dre, bet on it!
Meanwhile, let’s dine on Jussie Smollett’s duet with Estelle, best song so far to come out, (Don’t bring up Drip Drop please)
For fans of this dynastic pot boiler where Lucious Lyon rules despite his grave ALS diagnosis, will get to see the main cast on American Idol.
Tune in tomorrow, Thursday, March 12 (8:00-10:00 PM live ET/tape-delayed PT), for a performance of “No Apologies,” with Jussie Smollett (Jamal Lyon) and Bryshere Gray a.k.a “Yazz” (Hakeem Lyon), featured on the Original Soundtrack of Season One, in stores now. The release is the first in a series of soundtracks that will feature original music from EMPIRE, and will showcase cast members Smollett and Gray, alongside Terrence Howard (Lucious Lyon) and guest stars Courtney Love, Juicy J, Jennifer Hudson, Estelle, Mary J. Blige and Rita Ora.
Tonight, Andre forms a new musical relationship with Michelle (guest star Jennifer Hudson), and a woman from Lucious’ past, Angie (guest star Mary J Blige), comes into the picture. Meanwhile, Lucious invites the whole family over to his home. However, everyone arrives with their own agendas. Hakeem, under the influence of Camilla (Naomi Campbell, never better), sets out to show his father that he’s a true artist and a good businessman. Cookie prepares to state her own agenda for Empire and for her family, when Olivia (guest star Raven-Symone) arrives in the all-new “Sins Of The Father” episode of “Empire” tonight, March 11 (9:01-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. (EMP-110) (TV-14 D, L, S, V).
