85th Anniversary Season Opener
Wednesday, February 20, 2019
Featuring Special Guest: Raheem DeVaughn
The 85th anniversary season starts with a brand new line-up of contestants competes for the chance to perform during the March 13th Show Off and move on to Top Dog on May 15th. It all leads to the chance of winning the title of Super Top Dog and a cash prize ($5,000 in the Child Star category and $20,000 in the Adult category) on November 21st!
Aspiring musicians, singers, dancers, comedians, rappers and spoken word artists try their best to please the audiences that can make them an Apollo legend. Get ready to cheer or jeer as you decide who stays and who gets booted off stage. At Amateur Night, you tell the performers to be good or be gone!
Amateur Night at the Apollo is hosted by the comedian Capone. Each show begins with a festive pre-party featuring video and music by DJ Jess followed by the dynamic vocals of Joe Gray, the “Set it Off Man.” And keep a lookout for C.P. Lacey, the resident Executioner who sweeps bad talent off the stage.
