Jamie Foxx is reviving American TV talent show Showtime At The Apollo.

The actor and singer made the announcement when he appeared on stage at charity fundraiser Apollo in the Hamptons, The New York Post reports.

Jamie said: "The Apollo did it long before American Idol, except the audience were the judges."

The Hollywood star will executive-produce the show for BET.

Showtime At The Apollo ran on TV for 21 years until 2008. Performers, ranging from professional to amateur, would demonstrate their talent, sometimes getting booed off stage by the audience.

Horrible Bosses star Jamie himself was booed off the show as a young comedian.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

You long to have some fun, but responsibilities require your attention. Set some reasonable goals and then reward yourself when you finish them in the allotted time. Having incentives will keep you focused and productive. Fortunately, a loved one is offering lots of support. Lean on this friend when you feel discouraged. With their encouragement, you'll be able to finish work in record time. After hours, you'll be able to share a good meal together. Do your best to balance work with play.More
