When words aren't enough, emojis come to the rescue!

E! News invaded the set of Empire to get all the juicy season two scoop we could pry out of the cast of Fox's record-breaking drama. While they revealed some shocking details about the new season (make sure to tune into E! News tonight at 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. to find out what they said!) they also picked out the emojis they think go best with season two. 

And then they each acted out the emojis they picked. And we got it all on camera. You are so welcome.

Press play on our exclusive video above now to watch the hilarity go down!

Empire, Taraji P. Henson


Why did Taraji P. Henson pick the shocked and sobbing emojis?!

"You can't do it in two," Henson says. "You have to use all of the emojis for this show." 

We don't doubt that!

Trai Byers, Empire


Trai Byers agreed with his onscreen mama, and also picked the shocked emoji, while Bryshere Gray went even more dramatic and opted for the wide eyes emoji.

Kaitlin Doubleday, Grace Gealey, Serayah and Ta'Rhonda Jones also had some top-notch picks, but Jussie Smollett and Gabourey Sidibe win all of the awards for their emoji choices.

Because you absolutely have not lived until you're able to use the correct "Boo Boo Kitty" emoji combination. Just. Pure. Genius.
