Fox launches contest to find next Empire artist


Plenty of characters on Fox’s Empire are thirsty for fame, and now the network is opening the doors of the fictional Empire Entertainment to real musicians across the country: On Thursday, Fox announced the start of its “Fox’s Next Empire Artist” bus tour. Starting in Los Angeles, the Empire bus will travel to 15 different cities, equipped with a recording studio where fans can record their own versions of Empire’s hits, which means a slew of fan recordings of “Drip Drop”are coming Fox’s way. Yikes.

Fans will also have the chance to record a capella versions of the songs to submit to the “Fox’s Next Empire Artist” contest, and the winner will appear as a new Empire Entertainment artist in the upcoming second season. Who wouldn’t want a chance to have Cookie Lyon throw a shoe at them?


Empire returns on September 23.
