'Empire': Pitbull to Guest Star and Perform in Season 2

Pitbull Hosts Again

The musician started off his monologue just after Swift's performance, of which the host joked, "She just sold another 68 million albums!" And since he's called "Pitbull, Mr. 305, Mr. Worldwide — with three names, they should pay me triple!" He also joked that among the audience, he saw "black, white, pink, purple, orange, Asian, Latinos —and guess what? President Obama said, we can all stay!" in reference to his immigration address, and laughed, "ABC found out last year that when I spoke just 3 Spanish words, ratings went up 142 percent, so get ready for three hours of just subtitles!"

Empire's season two musical roster is starting to give the Grammys a run for its money.

Pitbull is the latest artist to land a guest appearance in the hip-hop drama's upcoming second season, Fox announced at the Television Critics Association summer press tour Thursday.

The "Give Me Everything" singer and rapper (real name: Armando Christian Perez) will also perform “No Doubt About It” on the show alongside Jussie Smollett, who plays singer and newly installed Empire Records head Jamal.

Pitbull joins a long and impressive list of musical talent set to appear, including Alicia Keys, Lenny Kravitz, Ne-Yo, Kelly Rowland and Ludacris.

On Wednesday, co-creator Lee Daniels revealed that Mariah Carey will guest this season. However, sources tell THR a deal is not yet in place.

 Season two of Empire premieres on Sept. 23 at 9 p.m. on Fox.
