Last year, FOX introduced a few new non-scripted programs, and the Beat Shazam TV show was one those which escaped cancellation. Now that the novelty has worn off, will fans return for the second season, or is this FOX TV series just a one-hit wonder? Will Beat Shazam be cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
An interactive, musical game show hosted by Jamie Foxx, Beat Shazam features a group of two-player teams, who race against the clock, and each other, to identify song selections. Corinne Foxx has joined as the Deejay in the second season. During each round, Foxx presents a choice of two musical categories. The object is to be the first team to correctly identify the song’s title. While low-scoring teams are eliminated from the FOX game show, the team which banks the most money will ultimately advance to compete against the Shazam app, for a chance at a huge cash prize.
