FOX Renews Beat Shazam


The interactive music game show Beat Shazam is getting a second season on FOX in the U.S.

Hosted and executive produced by Jamie Foxx, Beat Shazam pits teams of two against the clock and each other as they attempt to identify the biggest hit songs of all time. The show is inspired by the Shazam music app, which has been downloaded more than 1 billion times.

Foxx will return as host and executive producer for season two, along with executive producers Mark Burnett and Jeff Apploff.

“Jamie is the ultimate host and entertainer,” said Rob Wade, the president of alternative entertainment and specials at Fox Broadcasting Company. “He’s a larger-than-life personality, with a passion for music that’s infectious, and we can’t wait to have him return for another great round of Beat Shazam in season two.”
