Our beloved Empire co-stars, Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard were very impressive on LL Cool J’s Lip Sync Battle.
Taraji sung Mary J. Blige’s “Just Fine” and brought out the Queen of Hip Hop/Soul to aide with the feel good song. His cameo to Boyz II Men’s “I’ll Make Love to You” didn’t stand a chance after Taraji’s performance with her special guest.
In round 2, Terrence dressed up like Rick James and sung The Commodores “Brick House”. Meanwhile, Taraji got all glamorous and sung “Material Girl”. And of course, the duo couldn’t leave without singing their oscar-winning hit “Hard Out Here For a Pimp” from the movie Hustle & Flow.
Check out the two go head to head on the season finale of Lip Sync Battle above.
America’s favorite family is back
Lee Daniels‘ record-setting drama, Empire, starring Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson, will be returning for a much-anticipated second season, and above, you can watch its latest trailer.
The show that gripped the nation, about a high-profile record label run by a defunct family whose closeted skeletons include murder, sickness, adultery and prison, quickly developed a cult-like fan base, brought so much attention to the music used within the show that the artists became stars in real life, highlighted by their own BET Awards segment.
Terrence is in an orange jumpsuit, the brothers are torn as to whom the family should look to for leadership, and Cookie is wreaking havoc, as expected.
Fans are anxious, nervous, but excited for the bitter sweet finale of the hit series Empire, which kicks off in less than 45 minutes.
The cast Terrance Howard, Taraji P. Henson, Jussie Smollet, Trai Byers, and Bryshere “Yazz” Gray have already delivered an incredible season and the ratings are through the roof. The anticipation for the 2-hour long finale tonight is building after Taraji, known to Empire fans as “Cookie Lyon,” appeared on the Steve Harvey Show this morning.
“I’m just so sorry for what we are going to do to you guys, it’s bad!” Henson mentioned about the episode. Watch a clip of her interview above and be sure to catch the season finale of Empire on FOX at 8pm EST tonight!
