Mariah Carey will enter the Lyons den for the upcoming season of Empire. According to a release from Fox, the iconic songstress will guest and perform as a mega-star named Kitty on the hit series from Lee Daniels on Wednesday, Oct. 5.

Additional celebrities who have been tapped for Empire’s third season including rapper French Montana, actor Taye Diggs, actress Sierra McClain and rapper Birdman, who shall play himself.

Carey and Daniels have teamed together in the past for films that the singer starred in including the 2013 historical drama The Butler and 2009’s emotional flick Precious. In addition to Empire, Mimi will also bring the glamor to small screens for her forthcoming E! reality show Mariah’s World debuting Dec. 4.

She recently toyed with the idea of a second season for the show, telling Billboard after her TCA appearance last week, “If I’m touring or in the studio and doing things that are intertwined with my life as a singer, musician, writer and if people see that and respond to it, then we should do it.” She adds, “If I’m sitting around getting pedicures, then we shouldn’t do it … I don’t have the relaxing spa day or these other things that are somehow very intriguing to the rest of the world. To me that’s boring as hell. But that’s just me.”

Empire will strike back for its third season when the premiere airs Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 9 p.m. ET on Fox.
