Empire has been a big success for Fox and has brought new meaning to the musical drama tv genre, the ratings for the show have been very good and its overall reception has been very positive. How could Empire top itself you ask? the answer is to include more cameos. This shows the acting is already spot on but cameos could help the show garner even more attention. We have already seen Snoop Dogg appear on this show so why not bring more talented black musicians on the show as well. I've compiled this list just to see who could fit well on the show.
Ne-Yo has been one of those rappers who has fallen under the radar as of late but is still very much in the game. Ne-Yo rose to fame at a young age and was signed to Columbia records in 2000.N e-Yo also has great talent as a songwriter and actor so he would blend well.
2. Beyonce Knowles
This might be an obvious choice but Beyonce's star-power could greatly Contribute to the show. If Her name were attached to the show it could equal a massive ratings spike and more people tuning in just to see her perform. Beyonce could even use the show as a platform to release new songs or singles.
Jay-Z is another prominent Musician who could also offer significant Star power if he was added to show.He has made a name for himself as one of the best rappers and top entrepreneurs in the Industry.Jay-Z started out with no record label and sold CD's out of his car to put himself out there. Overall Jay-Z is definitely a must for the show.
4. Kanye West
Not much to say here but here it goes. While a vast majority of people have negative perceptions of West, he still is regarded as great rapper and has a legion of fans who will support anything he does. Kanye has been called many things but you can't call him untalented.people don't like Kanye but I think the show could play that off in a way that makes people want to watch it.
Drake is another top talent that could help with the shows ratings. He is considered one the top rappers in the industry and continues to maintain his reputation despite the personal drama and rivalry with other rappers. Drake might even be open to appearing on the show, so he is the right choice for this kind of show.
6. Nicki Minaj
Nicki Minaj is another celebrity that could contribute to the show. her reputation is a bit mixed between loyal fans and harsh critics.She has become one of the most prominent female rappers despite the controversy and drama that is constantly swirling around her. Minaj is another Musician who is likely to express interest in appearing on the show.
7. Alicia Keys
Alicia Keys is another top Talent who has fallen off the main radar but is still very much around. right now it appears that she is doing TV work right now so it would be no surprise if she has her sights set on "Empire".
8. Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne is another musician who is most likely on the radar to appear on a show like this. He would feel right at home and it would be a great way for him to display his talent while getting more positive press and attention.
9. Kyle Massey
Kyle Massey is an up and coming rapper/actor. he was a former Disney channel star who was famous for being on Corey in the house and that's so raven.His last tv appearance was a cameo on the DC comics tv series "[Gotham](series:1127075)". currently his co-star Raven Simone made an appearance on [Empire](movie:784585). Massey is still trying to boost his career as a rapper and being on this show could help so I doubt he would pass up the opportunity to be on this show.
Rihanna seems like a very clear choice for the show. she is arguably one of the top performers in Hollywood working today. she can act and sing so her appearance on Empire would seem natural.Rihanna hasn't been on screen for a while but voice a character in an animated movie called "Home". She doesn't need to be on the show but I'm sure she might at some point.
11. Jaden Smith
Jaden smith hasn't had the best of luck in the media but that could change at some point if he decides to star in another movie or TV show.Jaden is an actor and a musician so that could translate well to Empire.if he tries to get on the show many would hope it is his decision to do it and not at the urging or prestige of his parents.
