On Wednesday, December 14, FOX is presenting a night of music and drama. Airing one night only at a special time, Empire's Season Three fall finale (8 p.m. ET/PT) kicks off the night, followed by the special premiere of Star (9 p.m. ET/PT). From Academy Award and Golden Globe nominee Lee Daniels and Tom Donaghy, Star will then premiere in its regular time period with an all-new episode Wednesday, January 4 (9 p.m. ET/PT).

Featuring a soundtrack of original music and stunning music performances, Star is an emotionally powerful drama that follows three talented young singers -- desperate for a new start and with ambitions of stardom -- as they navigate the cut-throat music business. The series stars Academy Award nominee and Emmy Award, Grammy Award and Golden Globe Award winner Queen Latifah as Carlotta and Emmy Award nominee Benjamin Bratt as Jahil, and newcomers Jude Demorest as Star, Ryan Destiny as Alexandra, Brittany O'Grady as Simone and Amiyah Scott as Cotton. The series also will feature guest stars Grammy Award winner Lenny Kravitz, supermodel/actress Naomi Campbell and Grammy Award-nominated musician and actor Tyrese Gibson.
