[VIDEO] Amateur Night at Harlem's Apollo Theater Gives Performers a Big Time Shot

Since 1934, the Apollo Theater in Harlem ha offered some sort of an Amateur Night in which anybody off the street can come and perform on the world-famous stage, only to be judged with cheers and boos by the audience.

Amateur Night at the Apollo is one of New York’s most popular live entertainment experiences, attracting performers and audiences the world over. The classic competition is known for its notoriously “tough” audience, gleefully deciding who will “be good or be gone” to win the grand prize. Who will be the next Ella Fitzgerald, James Brown or Michael Jackson? At Amateur Night, you decide.
