Fox may be done with American Idol, but they're not giving up their love of singing competitions. The network announced Thursday that it's launching "Fox's Next Empire Artist," a nationwide bus tour that will give fans the chance to try their hand at Empire's songs.

The gold Empire bus, naturally, outfitted with its own recording studio, will travel to 15 cities across the United States for fans to record their versions of songs from the series. Fans will also have the chance to record an a capella version to submit to the "Fox's Next Empire Artist" contest, the winner of which will appear on the show's upcoming second season.

And if recording your own tunes isn't enough, fans can also be a part of a special photo experience, standing in for Lucious Lyon, and will be treated to Cookie's fresh-baked cookies.

Everyone's out to get Lucious on Empire
