5 things you need to know about Beat Shazam
By Bandook - January 26, 2018
THE HOST IS THE BIG DRAW Multi-award winning actor and singer-songwriter Jamie Foxx (who’s also the show’s executive producer) brings his A-Game. But will the contestants? FAMILIAR FORMAT
If you’re an Indian or a Brit, think of it as Kaun Banega Crorepati Official/Who Wants To Be a Millionaire’s ‘Fastest Finger First’ round with a musical twist. 3 teams of two contestants each square off over five rounds. The one who banks the most money at the end of it, goes head-to-head with Shazam (the app). If the contestant can guess six songs before the app, they win the prize money.
THE PRIZE MONEY IS H-U-G-E!
For a guessing game? For sure. You have to know all songs in all genres of music really, really well. The winner takes it all? How much you ask? $1 million, that’s how much!
YOU CAN PLAY ALONG
Keep Shazam in ‘on’ mode on any device and let it detect the song, if you can’t. Going by the teasers, we hope they decide to make an Indian version of this show. It does look addictive.The show, which originally aired on FOX, premieres on Indian televisions on Friday (January 12, 2018) at 9 pm on Colors Infinity.>
