Jussie Smollett And Yazz The Greatest Billboard Music Awards Video: Watch Empire Stars’ Performance Here!
Jussie Smollett and Yazz The Greatest performed “You’re So Beautiful” at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday. The song, which was first performed on “Empire,” was co-written by Smollet. See the Billboard Music Awards video below.
Smollett and Yazz, whose real name is Brashere Y. Gray, were also joined by Estelle for “Conqueror,” which also debuted on “Empire” earlier this year. The performance was introduced by Taraji P. Henson, whose character Cookie Lyon has been the breakout of the hit Fox series. Before taking the stage, the actress turned heads on the red carpet in her cut-out dress, which appeared to require going commando.
As Gossip Cop reported, Smollett and Yazz recently gave a performance of “You’re So Beautiful” on “Good Morning America.” On “Empire,” Smollet and Yazz play brothers Jamal and Hakeem Lyon, respectively. When the season ended, Smollet’s Jamal was supposed to take over Empire Records from his dad Lucious, played by Terrence Howard, while Yazz’s Hakeem was busy building a rap career. Henson plays their mother and Lucious’ ex.
As Henson pointed out, the “Empire” soundtrack debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 Albums chart upon its release. Check out the video of the “Empire” stars taking over the BBMAs below!
