Fox show Empire came to life at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday, May 17, when Bryshere “Yazz” Gray (who plays Hakeem Lyon) performed alongside Empire cast member Jussie Smollett (who plays Jamal Lyon) and Estelle.
The three artists/actors performed a medley of their Empire hits: Gray and Smollett performed “You’re So Beautiful,” but not before Smollett and Estelle killed their duet, “Conqueror.” “Conqueror” is originally featured on Estelle’s album, True Romance.
Empire viewership grew tremendously through out the first season, with 16.7 million viewers tuning in for its finale. And as presenter and Empire cast member, Taraji P. Henson (who plays Cookie), said, the show’s soundtrack debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
