This is the most wonderful thing we've heard all week.

Her empire is about to get even bigger!
FOX talked up the musical drama at the Television Critics Association press tour on Monday, where they confirmed that while the singer WILL NOT be playing herself… she might as well be.
Apparently, Mariah will be portraying a superstar named Kitty — where have we heard that before? — who is brought in to partner up with Jussie Smollett's Jamal for a brand-new song.
That's sounds pretty entertaining in itself, but as long as we get a scene between Mariah and Taraji P. Henson when she stops by on October 5, we'll be content!
Plus, as if that weren't enough, Mariah's other new show Mariah's World premieres on E! this December, which means we're not gonna be emancipating from Mimi anytime soon!
Do U think Mariah has the acting chops to play a fictionalized version of herself??
