*It was only a matter of time before Lee Daniels got his muse Mariah Carey to appear on “Empire.”

Fox announced today that it will indeed happen this fall, when the chanteuse makes a guest appearance on Daniels’ series as Kitty, a mega-superstar who comes to Empire to collaborate with Jamal Lyon (Jussie Smollett) on an new song. When the duet encounters obstacles, Kitty helps Jamal dig deep to overcome personal difficulties and reach a musical breakthrough.

Carey’s episode will air Wednesday, Oct. 5 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).

Season 3 of “Empire” premieres Wednesday, Sept. 21 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). Additional guest stars this season include Taye Diggs, Sierra McClain, rapper French Montana and music mogul Birdman, who plays himself.

Mariah will also premiere in the 8-part E! reality series “Mariah’s World,” premiering on Dec. 4.
