‘Showtime At The Apollo’ being picked up by FOX as a weekly series

The Apollo Theater and FOX today announced that SHOWTIME AT THE APOLLO has been picked up as a one-hour weekly series featuring Emmy Award-winning personality Steve Harvey as host. Set to debut during the 2017-2018 season, SHOWTIME AT THE APOLLO is a reimagining of the classic talent showcase series.

“We all had such a blast on the two specials that aired earlier this season, that we thought it really deserved being a weekly event,” said Harvey. “But our mission is a little different this time around. Instead of just putting on a great show, we’re going to do that and find the next great comic and the next big music star. That’s what the Apollo is all about. My roots are on that stage and I can’t wait to be there every week, looking for great talent. Who said you can’t go back home again?”

Featured in the series are elements from the Apollo’s legendary Amateur Night – the long-running, live talent competition, now in its 82nd year – which provides a platform for up-and-coming artists to perform in front of the toughest audience in the world. The Apollo audience is famed as one of entertainment’s most boisterous and brutally honest, and those amateurs who don’t win them over must endure the wrath of this notorious crowd.

The Apollo Theater launched the careers of many iconic artists, including James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Lauryn Hill, Michael Jackson and The Jackson Five, D’Angelo and countless others. Its venerable stage show, Amateur Night at the Apollo, has long been revered by artists as a transformative experience during which up-and-coming talent feel the power of the legendary performers who have come before them, while audience response can help make or break a career.

In each episode, Harvey will be joined by some of the biggest stars in comedy and music. Artists featured in the two SHOWTIME AT THE APOLLO specials that aired earlier this season on FOX include John Legend, Ashanti, Ja Rule, Busta Rhymes, Doug E. Fresh, Chaka Khan, Anderson.Paak & The Free Nationals, Flo Rida, Rakim, T.I. featuring Meek Mill, Quavo and RaRa, Bell Biv Devoe, En Vogue and Jodeci; and comedians Anthony Anderson, Chris Rock, Tracy Morgan, George Lopez, Jay Pharoah, Mike Epps and Gabriel Iglesias.

Open auditions for SHOWTIME AT THE APOLLO will be held at the legendary Theater on Sunday, April 23rd. Additional auditions will be held in select cities across the country.

This audition is open to singers, dancers, comedians and musicians of all ages and musical styles. Artists are encouraged to arrive early as auditions are on a first come first seen basis and only the first 300 acts per venue will be seen. More complete details are outlined below and available on www.apollotheater.org.

Steve Harvey To Host 2-Hour SHOWTIME AT THE APOLLO Special On FOX

Emmy Award-winning personality Steve Harvey will host SHOWTIME AT THE APOLLO, a two-hour event and re-imagining of the classic talent showcase series, in which Harvey will celebrate his return to the famed theater, where he launched his own career, and where he’ll be joined by some of the biggest stars in comedy and music. The star-studded special will air Monday, Dec. 5 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. An additional one-hour special, also hosted by Harvey, will air in early 2017.

Also to be featured in the special are elements from the Apollo’s legendary Amateur Night – the long-running, live talent competition, now in its 82nd year – which provides a platform for up-and-coming artists to perform in front of the toughest audience in the world. The Apollo audience is famed as one of entertainment’s most boisterous and brutally honest and those amateurs who don’t win over the crowd risk being booed off the stage. Amateur Night at the Apollo launched the careers of many iconic artists, including James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Lauryn Hill, Michael Jackson and The Jackson Five, D’Angelo and countless others, and the show continues to present new talent on the legendary Apollo stage every Wednesday night. The Apollo Theater’s Amateur Night has long been revered by artists as a transformative experience during which up-and-coming talent feel the power of the legendary performers who have come before them, while audience response can help make or break a career.

 “I’m excited to be going back home to the Apollo to celebrate the history of this great theater,” said Harvey. “I have great memories from my time there, and this is going to be a homecoming party that you won’t want to miss.”

Jonelle Procope, President and CEO of the Apollo Theater and an executive producer of the special said:

“Since its inception in 1934, the world’s original talent competition – Amateur Night at the Apollo – was, and continues to be, a primary source for discovering new talent and spotlighting up-and-coming artists. That tradition was extended with the successful 21-year run of the ‘Showtime at the Apollo’ television program. We’re proud to continue to produce our live, weekly show, and are equally excited to be partnering with FOX to produce this SHOWTIME AT THE APOLLO special and to bring the Apollo experience back to television!”

David Madden, President, Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company says:

“The Apollo Theater played a crucial role in so many of this nation’s most talented artists, including Steve, and we couldn’t be happier to have him lead us back to this legendary venue. We’re sure this will be a fantastic night of entertainment.”

Hey, Kim…Can we tag along?!

Recently, Kim Kardashian and her “Clique”, as she stated, hit up Cannes on Tuesday and had dinner that evening with a few familiar faces in tow for the festivities.

Pictured above are: British Formula One Racer/Kendall Jenner‘s Alleged Boo – Lewis Hamilton, Comedian & Talk Show HostSteve & Marjorie Harvey, Producer of ‘The Kardashians’ franchise show/Radio Show Host — Ryan Seacrest, Rapper Tyga, Kris Jenner‘s Beau – Corey Gamble and more.

The most shocking part was seeing Steve and his wife Marjorie, and Tyga on-hand. Could this be the new “Clique.” Or what is momager Kris cooking up? We know she all about building relationships and brands! You can’t be mad at her!

But, all in all, we’re sure everyone has a good time!

[Fly-LIGHTs][Red Carpet] ‘Think Like A Man’ Atlanta Premiere …

Last night there was plenty of star power at the premiere of ‘Think Like A Man’ in Atlanta, GA . Steve Harvey and the majority of the cast brought their talents through to promote the new flick. Peep the carpet style…

Fly girl, Lala Anthony  was trendy and chic in a leather color blocking dress and Christian Louboutin ankle booties.

#WeLike

Gabrielle Union was a beauty in a yellow gown, she looked regal, her hair should have pulled her hair back.

Micheal Ealy was ready for an interview in his khaki suit.

Couple of the moment, Selita Ebanks and Terrence J were all smiles.

Keisha Knight Pulliam

That fishbone braid, that shirt tied up in the front, that long split …

#GoodByeGurl

The shortest one in charge, Kevin Hart played it cool as always.

Ne-Yo …. ummmmm came straight from the studio.

I’m into Regina Hall‘s situation. She normally looks every bit of crazy …

T.I. kept it Akoo fresh on the carpet, #BRANDING, I’m not mad at all.

Singer Jacob Latimore hit the carpet with Nelly. As you can see, Nelly was in his signature V Neck and jeans…look if it ain’t broke

I’m so mad at Tasha Smith‘s wig … I love her so much. I’m just gonna assume there’s a gun under the wig and the wig threatened to kill her entire family if they didn’t take him.

And of course Steve Harvey and his wife were on deck … looking like the first family of Bed-side Baptist.

-Stay Fly!
