See Eminem perform on top of the Empire State Building tonight

The Los Angeles–based Jimmy Kimmel Live! comes to Brooklyn for five nights this week, broadcasting from BAM's Howard Gilman Opera House. The show has a few surprises up its sleeve beyond just stealing little kids' candy, and midtown passersby got a sneak peek at one of those as the Empire State Building flashed an insane array of colors around 11pm on October 6.

“Someone on molly is controlling the Empire State Building,” one Tweeter noted.

It turns out that was all for an Eminem performance being filmed on the building's 103rd floor. The special rooftop area, a good 17 levels above the normal observation area on the 86th floor, should feature on at least part of the video in which Em reportedly raps his tune "Venom" off the soundtrack of the movie of the same name. If you are about that kind of thing, director James Larese shot the scene using Google's new Pixel 3 smartphone.

We'll get a chance to hear and see what they were up to tonight on Jimmy Kimmel Live! If that's past your bedtime look for the clip posted online early tomorrow.

Update: Watch it below.
