After a syndication run spanning 21 years, Showtime at the Apollo is back with a brand new revival of the much-loved series.
The show is a weekly variety style competition featuring musical performers, singers, comedians, and more. Taping of the show’s all-new holiday specials has begun. All-new episodes of the series, hosted by Steve Harvey, will air on Fox. Harvey originally hosted Showtime at the Apollo from 1993 to 2000, as well as two well-received specials in recent years.
This exciting revamp of the series will have you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. Watch as the mix of budding talent and seasoned veterans take the iconic stage by storm. Up-and-coming artists step up to perform in front of a live audience. Those in the audience get the chance to judge performers by cheering or booing. Amateurs who fail to win over the brutal crowd are booed off the stage. With the added fun of audience interaction with a group of animated folks, the series promises to be entertaining.
The Apollo’s legendary Amateur Night has launched the careers of many now iconic performers, such as Michael Jackson and the Jackson Five, Stevie Wonder, D’Angelo, Lauryn Hill, James Brown, and countless others. Showtime at the Apollo’s reincarnation stays true to the most cherished elements of the Apollo’s Amateur Nights. Though highlighting the amazing performances from established artists, the series intends to not only put on a great show, but also to uncover the next great talent. With host Steve Harvey, this newest revamp brings the nostalgia full circle.
Showtime at the Apollo returns with the perfect atmosphere for nurturing budding talent to create epochal performances that the audience won’t soon forget. You won’t want to miss any of these all-new episodes, including the holiday themed episodes coming this season. An immensely talented cast of guest stars like Snoop Dogg, Fifth Harmony, Boyz II Men and DMX will surround host Steve Harvey as they liven up the holidays. It will be a truly spectacular celebration from Fox. Be sure to tune in on Dec. 14 on Fox!
