'Empire' -- Meet Lucious Lyons' Mama ... Kelly Rowland?!!

Terrence Howard’s character on Empire owes everything to Kelly Rowland … cause she’s going to play his mother on the show for season 2.

Kelly is set to make an appearance on the upcoming season in the form of a flashback as Lucious Lyon’s mother.

The 34-year-old singer recently popped up in a post from the official Empire writers Twitter account hanging with the screenwriters.

She’s joining a long list of guest stars jumping on the show – Chris Rock, Lenny Kravitz, Alicia Keys and Marisa Tomei.

The new season starts September 23rd.
