The evening, which honors the best in cabaret, comedy & jazz, differs from other award shows in that it features no acceptance speeches. Instead of speeches, the winners perform.
In honor of the 10th anniversary of The Nightlife Awards, the show's creator/producer, Scott Siegel, has announced that this year's show will bring back some of the last decade's most memorable performers in an all-star tribute to New York nightlife. Artists will be announced at a later date.
In a statement Siegel said, "Having Lucie Arnaz and Bill Irwin co-host the 10th Annual Nightlife Awards makes, I think, a powerful comment on the prestige and importance of this show. The respect and admiration that the entertainment community has for these two supremely talented people goes without saying. And far beyond that, they will be delightfully funny and entertaining hosts. When it comes down to it, I don't know who is going to have a better time: the performers on stage or the audience!"
