Semi Final

Amateur Night Ad

Amateur Night’s best and brightest light up the Apollo stage as winners from the Quarter-Final return for their last chance to compete before the Grand Finale.  Which of these emerging stars will land a spot in the final show and take home the $20,000 grand prize? Join the experience and cast your vote  in an interactive evening unlike any other. Who will be one step closer to becoming the next Ella Fitzgerald,  Luther Vandross, Lauryn Hill, H.E.R, Machine Gun Kelly or Jazmine Sullivan? At Amateur Night, YOU DECIDE!.

Amateur Night at the Apollo sponsored by Coca-Cola, is hosted by the comedian Capone. Each show begins with a festive pre-party featuring video and music by DJ Jess. Keep a lookout for C.P. Lacey, the resident Executioner who sweeps bad talent off the stage!
