The “EMPIRE” cast was ready to turn up at the FOX L.A. Screenings party last night. Peep pics of Taraji P. Henson, Terrence Howard, Jussie Smollett, Bryshere Gray, Tyrese and more inside….

“EMPIRE” mom Taraji P. Henson changed up her hair game with a head full of waves for the FOX L.A. Screenings party on the Fox Studio Lot last night. The YBF chick got some big wavy hair with blonde highlights, serving up a little Janet Jackson Velvet Rope tease. And we’re loving it.

Terrence Howard aka Luscious Lyon, who’s expecting a baby boy this month with his wife Miranda Howard, came out to party it up with his cast mates.

Upcoming “Minority Report” star Meagan Good was on the scene as well. She caught up with up her co-star Laura Regan during the night’s festivities. The FOX drama pilot is the sequel to the Steven Spielberg-directed movie set 10 years after the end of Precrime in D.C. The sequel series is expected to come to FOX this Fall on Mondays at 9pm ET.

“EMPIRE” breakout star Jussie Smollett and Terrence had some fun with fans before Jussie hit the stage to perform.

The man behind all of the good music on “Empire,” superproducer Timbaland was also in the mix, snapping it up with Tyrese. Ty has been hinting he may be starring in season 2. Yes, “Baby Boy’s” Jody and Yvette may be reuniting.

“The Lyons” were all smiles backstage.

“Cookie” got kissy with her son “Jamal” before he rocked the stage.

Baby Boy stars “Jody” & “Yvette” were busy snapping “us-ies” in the audience as the party got started. We are SO here for a Jody & Yvette reunion on the upcoming season…IF the rumors are true.

Taraji was all about the “us-ies” last night snapping it up with Timbland, Ty and Terrence. Tyrese captioned, “The best moment of the night is Terrence Howard walked up to me and said “So you talking shit about me on Instagram huh? #EmpireMoves keep your hands off of my #CookieJar – This season is gonna be some furniture moving around this mother f%€|€!r” Ha!

“Empire” star and singer V. Bozeman was also in the mix.

Tyrese rolled into the party in style. He and Timbaland took a moment to hang out in Ty’s custom Rolls-Royce Ghost Sprinter van. He captioned, “#VoltronGhostSprinter @Timbaland let’s just say we’re about to do some heavy heavy shit!!!!!” Must be nice.

Jussie and Bryshere aka Yazz The Greatest hit the stage to perform their hot tracks “You’re So Beautiful” and “Money For Nothing.”

V. Bozeman flexed her vocals on “What Is Love.”

And look who else was there…Estelle Darlings! She hit the stage with Jussie to perform their duet “Conqueror.” Peep a clip below:
