Hopefully this show gives BET programming the lift it’s been looking for… We gotta say we’re actually excited to check out “Apollo Live” tonight.
It’s been four years since production of Showtime At The Apollo ceased, but BET is staging a revival of the popular show in the form of Apollo Live with its broadcast premiere on November 29th at 8p/7c.
Birthplace of legends and home of future stars, The Apollo Theater shines anew for the next generation. Brought to you by the brilliant creative trio and executive producers Jamie Foxx, Marcus King, and Don Weiner who put a fresh spin on the classic “Amateur Night” variety show, Apollo Live is both a talent showcase and a singing competition. And there’s some serious talent in the judges seats with the legendary Gladys Knight, veteran emcee Doug E. Fresh, and New Edition’s Michael Bivins as judges. Hosted by comedian Tony Rock, Apollo Live promises to entertain with a bevy of special guest appearances and performances.
Will you be watching? Do you have a favorite Apollo memory?
Don’t forget to tune in at 8pm/7c on Thursdays on BET!
