BET’s sister network Centric announced Wednesday that Knight will work as the “lead judge” on “Apollo Live.” The new series is a singing competition at New York’s famed Apollo Theater and puts a new spin on the venue’s popular “Amateur Night” showcase. It will debut in the fall.
Knight joins previously announced judges Doug E. Fresh and Michael Bivins of New Edition and Bell Biv DeVoe.
Attorneys announced a settlement between Frederic von Anhalt, Gabor’s husband of 25 years, and her daughter Constance Francesca Hilton during a hearing. Superior Court Judge Reva Goetz approved the provisions, which call for financial oversight by several attorneys and allow Hilton to visit with her mother weekly.
Von Anhalt will continue to make medical decision about his wife’s care.
Florence Welch explained the situation on Twitter on Wednesday.
As well as passing on her apologies to fans, Welch tweeted about what happened, saying: “I cannot sing for a week ... seriously I felt something snap, it was very frightening.”
The Sept. 7 telethon will air commercial-free on ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC and on cable channels.
