"Empire" Season 1 may have ended months ago, but its stars, Jussie Smollett (Jamal) and Bryshere “Yazz” Gray (Hakeem), reunited at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday to perform “Conqueror,” featuring Estelle, and “You’re So Beautiful." Taraji P. Henson, who plays Cookie, introduced her co-stars with, "Prepare to celebrate the music of 'Empire!'"
“There’s no way I could possibly love music more than I already do,” Smollett told Billboard before the show. “The Billboard Music Awards has been the epitome of celebrating some of the best of the best in music. To be included as a performer on this year’s celebration is a huge honor.”
"I'm still living in a dream -- the success of Empire and now getting the honor to perform at the Billboard Music Awards. It's truly a blessing," Yazz told Billboard.
