'Showtime At The Apollo' Returns With Ja Rule And Ashanti
The classic Showtime at the Apollo talent show is back. The program debuted in 1987, and closed its doors in 2008. Like old times, comedian Steve Harvey is set to host the venue at The Apollo in Harlem, which airs on Monday (Dec. 5), at 8 p.m. EST on FOX. Additionally, a two-hour special will follow in early 2017 featuring snippets of the show's weekly Amateur Night competition.
The event is responsible for launching the careers of superstars like Alicia Keys, Lauryn Hill, Michael Jackson, James Brown, D. Angelo, and The Jackson 5. Besides showcasing new talent, Showtime at the Apollo also hosts performances from established artists. In this forthcoming episode, Ashanti and Ja Rule take the stage.
