*“Empire” fans can get a fix next month when Jussie Smollett and Bryshere “Yazz” Gray come off hiatus to suit up for the 2015 Billboard Music Awards.
The actors, who play brothers Jamal and Hakeem Lyon, will team with Estelle to perform “Conqueror” and “You’re So Beautiful” from the Fox series.
Smollett and Estelle sang “Conqueror” on one episode, while “You’re So Beautiful” — Terrence Howard’s character’s signature song — has been performed numerous times.
“There’s no way I could possibly love music more than I already do. The Billboard Music Awards has been the epitome of celebrating some of the best of the best in music,” Smollett said. “To be included as a performer on this year’s celebration is a huge honor.”
“I’m still living in a dream — the success of Empire and now getting the honor to perform at the Billboard Music Awards. It’s truly a blessing,” added Yazz.
“My hope is that ‘Conqueror’ will continue to inspire people as much as possible. It’s such a powerful message! I cannot wait to perform it at the Billboard Music Awards with Jussie!” said Estelle.
The Empire brothers and Estelle aren’t the only big names performing at the May 17 show. It was recently revealed that Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea will perform their collabo “Pretty Girls,” and many more incredible artists are playing the BBMAs: Fall Out Boy featuring Wiz Khalifa, Kelly Clarkson, Hozier, Nick Jonas, John Legend, Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, and Meghan Trainor.
The 2015 Billboard Music Awards will be hosted by Ludacris and Chrissy Teigen and broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, May 17 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
