A brand new line-up of contestants competes for the chance to perform during the July 12 Show Off and move on to Top Dog on August 16. It all leads to the chance of winning the title of Super Top Dog and the cash prizes of $5,000 in the Child Star category and $20,000 in the Adult category on November 22! Aspiring musicians, singers, dancers, comedians, rappers and spoken word artists try their best to please the audiences that can make them an Apollo legend. Then 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. And keep a lookout for C.P. Lacey, the resident Executioner who sweeps bad talent off the stage.
