Was there ever any doubt that the Empire finale would be absolutely bonkers?
In just two hours, Empire crammed in approximately six seasons' worth of material – and we wouldn't have it any other way.
The finale was a bit of a convoluted ... not mess, per se, but certainly something that requires a brief recap. Here's what happened in the season 1 finale of Empire, as told in 9 GIFs (and 3 Tweets!).

Empire is adding another superstar to its roster – Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson – and People.com has the exclusive first listen to her new song featured on the show.
On the hit drama's upcoming episode – airing Wednesday, March 11, on Fox at 9 p.m. ET – Hudson plays Michelle, who forms a new musical relationship with eldest son Andre, played by Trai Byers.
Hudson's fellow Grammy winner Mary J. Blige also guest stars as a woman from the past of patriarch Lucious Lyon's – played by Terrence Howard.
Hudson lends her powerful voice to the song "Remember the Music." (Catch that and other tunes on the upcoming Original Soundtrack from Season 1 of Empire, out March 10.)

It's been four years since Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda have appeared together on the big screen. And after the chilly reception for Sex and the City 2, it seemed we may never see the fabulous friends together again.

It's Michael Jackson, so at least he has good taste.
Hudson was a guest on Late Night with Seth Meyers Tuesday, and noted that her son, David Daniel Otunga Jr., has only her feelings at heart: He didn't want to make her feel bad that Jackson was his favorite singer, so he amended his statement to put Mom at No. 1 in the singing slot, and MJ at No. 1 in dancing.
(Interestingly, Hudson was actually pregnant with David while she performed at an MJ memorial.)
