When I was a kid, I used to stay up late on Saturday nights to watch the famous variety show, Showtime At the Apollo, on channel 4 at 1am. From the amazing singers, rappers, dancers, and poets that graced the stage, after rubbing the legendary tree stump for good luck, to the not so talented performers that never ceased to escape the chants of “Wap wap!” from the audience, those Sunday mornings were filled with some awe moments as well as laughs.

For that reason, no one could be more pleased than myself to announce that Jamie Foxx is teaming up with cancelled show’s executive producer, Don Weiner, to bring the popular singing competition show back to life, but on BET. As of yet, here is no date  for when the show will air.
