Alicia Keys Talks Tonight’s Guest Appearance on “Empire”.

Fox’s “Empire” adds to their already long list of celebrity guest stars Wednesday evening (Nov. 25), and this time, one particular guest star steals the show with a kiss in the final scene.

There were probably a few scenes on Wednesday night’s new episode of “” that took people aback in one way or another, but none probably did it more so than seeing what happened with Jamal and Skye (Alicia Keys) near the end of the episode.Usually when you think about big surprises happening on Fox’s “,” you are thinking about them mostly through the lens of something that puts the characters into a near-death situation. Recording artist Alicia Keys portrays a famous songstress, named Skye, who wants to stray away from her mainstream pop melody for a deeper sound that aligns more with her authentic self. As she gears up to make her guest starring appearance on FOX’s hit TV show, the singer reveals more details about her mysterious character, Sky Summers. “[Sky] is an artist, and she is really looking for the next place that she’s going,” Keys says. “She’s really looking to break out of maybe the boxes that have started to close in on her as an artist.

From the very beginning, Jamal’s character has been labeled as a proud homosexual musical artist, but things change quickly when Skye and Jamal exchange a kiss during a very intimate recording session. The show has set it up that this character is an openly gay man, and we do not see there being any questions or doubt on that being thrown into the mix over the next several weeks. However, she also did prefact that with the following: “The writers were already breaking a story in which — shock of shocks — Jamal hooks up with a girl, after all he’s been through … It’s a conversation that happens among gay people about sexual fluidity — about being devoutly gay, if you will, but there’s a spectrum. I have been talking about to make Sky come to life,” Keys says, noting that the character is not just a version of herself. “It’s the perfect song about right now, you know. There are some folks who aren’t attracted to people of the opposite sex at all, but there are some gay folks who sometimes do find themselves unexpectedly and momentarily attracted.

Not only socially in America, really talking about how we all matter, you know, and one of my favorite lines in the song is, ‘I see a colorful future where skin don’t define any human, and stars are the only things shooting.’ And it’s really, it’s really beautiful, obviously with all the things we’ve been dealing with, you know. Especially when you’re involved in a creative endeavor, those sparks can flare up because when you do something creative with someone and it really catches fire, there’s just nothing sexier.” Ultimately, rest assured that this is a story that is going to heat up and continue to play a big role in the winter finale next week.

Keys is slated to return for another appearance, so you have to assume that with that, the events of tonight will remain a significant subject of conversation. We are seeing him try to grapple with the notion that his life is constantly in flux, his father clearly has issues, and he is rarely on the same page with his brothers.

Speaking of people conflicted and struggling under the weight of various factors in his life, Hakeem seems to be intent for now on sticking with Lyon Dynasty. They all brought something interested to the show, and with the latter it was a nice window into Cookie’s past and what she is hoping to get out of the world. While we’re still not sold per se on Jamal kissing Skye as a huge development, the majority of this episode was entertaining enough to make it something that we’re looking forward to seeing next week for resolution alone.
