FOX hit ‘Empire’ may be beefing up to 18 episodes for its second season, but we’re beginning to wonder how it’ll accommodate the growing list of stars on its cast.

Mariah Carey is the latest name confirmed to appear on the music drama’s sophomore run.

Details below…

Confirmation came via creator Lee Daniels, who cheekily slotted in the news while tributing the singer at her Hollywood Walk of Fame presentation last night.

Speaking in front of the thousands in attendance, acclaimed director Daniels didn’t disclose the diva’s role. His words, however, did incite a chorus of cheers.

The ‘We Belong Together’ has previously worked with Daniels on movies including ‘The Butler,’ ‘Precious,’ and 2008 dramedy ‘Tennessee’ – for which she earned praise from critics.

Carey joins previously announced new guest stars Kelly Rowland, Chris Rock, Lenny Kravitz, Alicia Keys, and, Adam Rodriguez.

***********

Great to see Mimi diversifying her media portfolio. ‘Empire’ is as hot a show as a show gets at the moment, as such it’s an awesome look for her – and all involved.

Here’s hoping all these cool moves she’s making serve as a pre-cursor to a musical comeback.

    Ok enough with the guest appearances now… it’s looking like it’s starting to become more about ratings than the actual storyline

    Knew something like this would come through after seeing Lee Daniels at her ‘Walk of Fame’ ceremony.

    Plus Empire IS about the music industry so………

    Ever heard of..

    “Too many chefs ruins the broth”

    When has an all star cast come through with a good show or film? Nuff said

    Mariah should have played Courtney Love’s part. Perfect Part for her. FADED could have been the hit single she has been searching for but as usually Mariah’s drama and super dramatic life got in the way of — great music.

    Faded is a hit.
    Faded is her hit.
    Faded was slept on.
    Faded.

    P O W E R, after watching P O W E R empire just feels, well. Weak.

    Hopefully, Mimi Mariah brings her wisegirl vibe and it gets better.

    Cookie vs. Mariah yasssssssssssssssss

    I don’t watch the show, it seems to becoming a “You get a part, you get a part, everbody gets a part” and it will ruin the show.

    Only one dark skin guest in a country where most blacks are not light skin????? Chile …………
    They probably gonna make Kelly ghetto or crazy or something since she is the only guest star darker than a paper sack.
    I cant believe black people watch this sambo mess.
