What the what?! Kelly Rowland will play Lucious Lyon’s (Terrence Howard) mom on Empire! Yes you read that right! In what world is the sweet-heart of Destiny’s Child related to him?! We all know Empire has mastered emotional flashbacks. I mean who can forget little Jamal being thrown in a trashcan?

Well the flashbacks will be back in season two and according to E! News Kelly will star as Lucious’s mom in one of them!

At this point, who isn’t in Empire?! I mean they already have Alicia Keys, Chris Rock, and Lenny Kravitz joining the show… Wait! It’s no secret that Lucious is loosely based on Jay-Z so… if Kelly is on the show….WILL BEYONCÉ BE NEXT?!  Can we make that happen please!

Season 2 of Empire will debut Sept. 23 on FOX.

Are you excited for Empire?
