Because Fox’s “Empire” is a show about music — not just any show about music, but a VERY POPULAR show about music — it’s no surprise that the 2015 Billboard Music Awards commissioned a couple of cast members to grace the stage for a performance medley.
After a brief introduction from the “Empire” matriarch herself, Ms. Cookie Lyon (aka Taraji P. Henson, lol), Jamal (Jussie Smollett) performed “Conquerer” with Estelle, which was immediately followed by a joint performance of “You’re So Beautiful” with Hakeem (Bryshere “Yazz” Gray).
Watch it here:
A great performance and all, but what about “Drip Drop?” Twitter asked the same question:
Am I the only one that wanted to see them perform "Drip Drop" ??? #BBMAs
