Stevie Nicks is bringing her magic to American Horror Story: Coven and we have the bewitching photos! Nicks will play herself in the appropriately titled "The Magical Delights of Stevie Nicks" airing on Wednesday, Jan. 8 at 10 p.m. on FX.
In the episode, Fiona (Jessica Lange) brings the Fleetwood Mac singer to the obsessed Misty Day (Lily Rabe) as a way to test her. Rabe and Nicks will sing together. Take a minute and let that sink in. Amazing, right?
Throughout the show, Rabe's character has been talking about Nicks and Coven has used her music in more than one episode. Series co-creator Ryan Murphy said Nicks was an inspiration for Rabe's Misty Day and he's even consulted her about the show.
"I love her character, she is obsessed with Stevie Nicks. The season really is an allegory and a metaphor for any minority group in the country where you feel alone, so she's a girl that has never known any other witches and all she's ever known is Stevie Nicks," he said. "So I reached out to Stevie Nicks and asked her if we could use her music, and she thought about it for a while and then she said, 'Oh OK, since it's you, I'll do it.' … It's really fun and great and we use I think eight Stevie Nicks songs this year, so that's our musical stuff that we do."
Coven co-star Gabourey Sidibe told E! News that Nicks was "awesome." "You can tell she really likes the show too. She was like, 'Who's going to be the next Supreme!?' She was all in it and gets really, really excited. It was fun having her," she said.
