A brand new line-up of contestants compete for the chance to perform during the September 3 Show Off and move on to the Top Dog on November 19. It all leads to the chance of winning the title of Super Top Dog on November 26 and a cash prize of $10,000!
 
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 master impressionist C.P. Lacey, the resident Executioner who sweeps bad talent off the stage.
 
The contestants are Olutayo, Delynia Jannell, K. Jackman, Quintavious Johnson, David Michael Wyatt, Sakura, Static Rush X5, Jaliyl YaSeen, Dakota, Akua Doku, Victoria Canal, and Nyah the Artist.

From a talent point of view, tonight's TOP DOG show is headed for “Be Good or Be Great” status!  It will be pure Amateur Night entertainment at its best!

Tonight's highlights include: Jawan Mathis (for the ladies), Nicole Vanessa Ortiz (always an Amateur Night favorite), Christian Guardino (Our new kid vocal phenom), Sung Lee (the man of many sounds and featured in CBS Sunday Morning) and our own 15 year old Minnie Riperton - Sydney Arterbridge, just to name a few! The level of talent at this Top Dog is what Amateur Night is all about!  Stop by yourself and send some folk.
