BET’s sister network Centric announced Wednesday that Soror Gladys Knight will serve as the “lead judge” on “Apollo Live.”
The new series is a singing competition at New York’s famed Apollo Theater and puts a new spin on the venue’s popular “Amateur Night” showcase. It will debut in the fall 2012.
Knight joins previously announced judges Doug E. Fresh and Michael Bivins of New Edition and Bell Biv DeVoe. “Apollo Live” is executive produced by Jamie Foxx. Comedian-actor Tony Rock will host the show.
Centric said the series’ winner will take home a cash prize.
I don’t know about other judges Doug E Fresh and Michael Bivins?
(WTH?) But I am sure Soror Knight can hold her own!!!!
