Sketch Spotlight: The ‘Empire’ Parody At The 2015 BET Awards!

Sketches, Spotlight: Sketches / Stand Up

BET Awards hosts Tracee Ellis Ross and Anthony Anderson performed an ode to their Fox hit “Empire” during a Sunday skit, which was crashed by the real Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard) himself.

“You touched my relaxer,” Ross, in character as Taraji P. Henson‘s Cookie, yelled at Anderson, playing Lucious. “And I know you touched it, because you had straight hair at the beginning of the ‘Empire’ episode, and then in the middle you didn’t have straight hair, and then you had straight hair again at the end of the episode.”

Shoes were then threatened to be thrown over the product theft.

When the “Black-ish” male lead called out Howard for his ever-changing hairstyle, the actual “Empire” star scored the biggest laughs of the performance.

“I don’t go no perm no more,” Howard explained. “Started getting a bald spot.”
