Taraji P. Henson, who plays the outspoken ex-con “Cookie” Lyon on the network’s hit “Empire,” and her co-star Terrence Howard are bringing their distinctive love-hate chemistry to a Christmas TV special.

“Taraji and Terrence’s White Hot Holidays,” airing at 8 p.m. Dec. 9 on WFLD-Channel 32, will “spread cheer, goodwill and some holiday magic,” Fox said in its announcement Monday. A duet by the hosts is promised, along with Christmas carol performances byMary J. Blige, John Legend and Jamie Foxx.

Though “Empire” shoots in Chicago, the special will tape in Los Angeles.
