Patti LaBelle with Dancing With the Stars dancing partner Artem Chigvintsev

Although Empire's first season is complete, there's one guest star who has confirmed her return to season 2. Patti LaBelle made a brief appearance before Empire's season ended, and in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, she confirmed her return.

"Patti LaBelle will return," Labelle told reporters. "At first Lee [Daniels] had me playing an angel. I said, 'An angel? That means I'm over!' You know? I'm gone," LaBelle recounted, laughing. "He said, 'OK, Lala. I'm gonna give you a part and you're going to come back all the time.'"

All. The. Time.

One can only imagine the storyline that Daniels will concoct for LaBelle. Will LaBelle's character be #TeamLucious or #TeamCookie? That's the most important question ever!


Although an air date hasn't been set for season 2, you can catch LaBelle strutting her stuff Monday nights on Dancing With the Stars.
