Beat Shazam will see contestants attempt to identify popular and obscure songs quicker than the popular mobile app. Initially participants will face off against one another before a finalist progresses to face the all-knowing Shazam. Coming to FOX at an unconfirmed date, the show is Shazam's latest effort at moving into television. In recent years the company has provided extra content via T.V. adverts for NFL and also allowed users to identify a T.V. show by tagging its audio. The Hollywood Reporter states that Beat Shazam is expected to fill the gap left by American Idol.
