The Lyons (Taraji P. Henson, Terrence Howard, Jussie Smollett & Bryshere “Yazz” Gray) brought a superb presentation to the main stage, only this time out of their actual Empire characters, but as themselves, performing with the likes of: John Legend, Chris Brown, Tank, Patti Labelle, Mary J. Blige and more.
Chris grace the stage paying homage to the “Lucious Lyon” character, donned in all brown paired with a white tee under his blazer, and a brown fedora.
Performing the classic “This Christmas” with singer Tank and his current single “Back To Sleep”, you could notice a slight vocal tension in Chris’ voice, which affected the singer’s overall performance, showing that he was clearly under the weather.
MJ didn't score 50 every night. I'm just glad I was given the opportunity. #HappyHolidays ❤️

Of course, Social Media had a lot to say [in the negative zone] and “Cookie” aka Taraji jumped in to save the day.

Sick or not, Chris stayed committed to his performance and that’s all that counts. He carried out the task as a true performer should.
Congrats to everyone that took part. It was indeed a great show! We hope Patti brought some of her famous pies for everyone backstage! 🙂
