Students in the Hamilton in New York City Program  recently attended an amateur night at the Apollo Theater. Amateur night at the Apollo is a quintessential talent competition that serves as a model for Star Search and American Idol. The comedian Capone, known as Gangsta of Comedy, hosted the show and kept the evening animated and energetic with the audience responding throughout the show to his hilarious jokes and teasing.

The competition was held in two parts. The first part of the Amateur Night was reserved for the “stars of tomorrow” with young artists from 5 to 15 years. The second focused on candidates older than age 15 years. After the performance of each potential talent, the public got to vote by cheer or jeer. First place went to one whose cheers reached the highest decibel level - an amazing beat boxer from South Korea who can make five different sounds at the same time won first place.
