*Performers, special guests and a first trailer have been revealed for Fox’s resurrection of “Showtime at the Apollo,” a two-hour special airing Monday, Dec. 5 (8-10 p.m. ET) featuring returning host Steve Harvey.
Tracy Morgan, Mike Epps and Gabriel Iglesias; rappers Doug E. Fresh and Rakim; and musical acts Bell Biv DeVoe, John Legend, Flo Rida and En Vogue are all slated to take the stage.
The special will showcase Apollo’s legendary Amateur Night – the long-running, live talent competition, now in its 82nd year – which provides a platform for up-and-coming artists to perform in front of a crowd that won’t hesitate to boo you off the stage.
“I’m excited to be going back home to the Apollo to celebrate the history of this great theater,” said Harvey. “I have great memories from my time there, and this is going to be a homecoming party that you won’t want to miss.”

An additional one-hour special, also hosted by Harvey, will air in early 2017.
