Those two shows will feature the remaining semi-finalist’s performances.

The "Fame" series chronicles Debbie Allen's attempts to recruit multi-talented performers (ages 16 and up) from across the country, followed by an intense "boot camp" drill by Allen. The 24 finalists will perform solo and group routines in front of host Joey Fatone, celebrity panelists such as Carnie Wilson, music mogul Johnny Wright and top radio personality JoJo Wright, as well as their family and friends. After the field is narrowed, viewers at home will determine who ultimately travels the path all the way to "Fame."
"Fame" is produced by MGM Television Entertainment and Stone Stanley Entertainment with David G. Stanley, Scott A. Stone and multiple Emmy-Award winner Jeff Margolis serving as executive producers.
