In the Season 2 fall finale episode of Star, ‘Climax,’ the Midtown artists put their hard work to the test at the showcase. As Star (Jude Demorest) says to herself in the mirror, “If everything goes right, I get my music and my man.” That’s a tall order as her man Noah (Luke James) kisses her sister Alexandra (Ryan Destiny) on stage. Also on stage at the Midtown showcase is singer Gigi who rocks a Tina Turner-inspired black fringe suit.
Gigi is portrayed by singer Keke Palmer. As an actress, Palmer is known for her roles on Scream: The TV Series (Kym), Masters of Sex (Coral), Scream Queens (Zayday Williams), 90210 (Elizabeth Royce Harwood), and True Jackson, VP (True Jackson), among others. Fun fact: Palmer made her acting debut in the 2004 film Barbershop 2: Back in Business as Gina’s (Queen Latifah) niece. Star airs Wednesdays at 9pm on FOX, right after Empire.
