Just like Lucious Lyon – played by Terrence Howard on FOX's hip-hop drama series, "Empire" – pits his three sons against each other to compete to be his successor, so is the network now looking for local talent.

Beginning July 16, Philadelphians can enter to win an appearance on "Empire."

FOX is hosting a traveling singing competition, giving fans the chance to record their own versions of "Empire's" biggest hits, like "No Apologies" and "Drip Drop." In addition, fans will also get to record an a cappella version of those songs, which can also be submitted for the contest.

A special cameo on Season Two of "Empire" is offered as the grand prize.

FOX's "Next Empire Artist" competition and bus tour will visit 15 cities, nationwide, and Philly is toward the end of the tour.

Starting in Los Angeles, the gold "Empire" bus, outfitted with its own mini recording studio, will make its way across the country in search of recruits.

The Philly stop will take place Sept. 5 and 6 with a location yet to be determined. No purchase necessary to enter to win. For additional rules and information, visit www.fox.com/empire/next-empire-artist-rules.
