Jamie Foxx is reviving Showtime At The Apollo

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.

You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
