Steve Harvey will continue to host the show. There is a new wrinkle, however: Adrienne Haughton (Adrienne Bailon) will be joining Steve as co-host.

Apollo’s Amateur Night — the long-running, live talent competition, now in its 82nd year — will be featured prominently on the show. Up-and-coming artists will have a chance to perform in front of one of the toughest audience in the world: the Apollo crowd. (To put things in perspective, Lauryn Hill once got booed off the Apollo stage.)
