Man vs. machine.
A new game show based on music discovery app Shazam is coming to FOX.
Contestants on Beat Shazam will compete to identify particular songs (in the same way that the app helps you uncover the title and artist behind a track) to make it to the next round. If successful, then they’ll go up against the app to win the game.
No debut date has been set, but it will fill the void for music-based competition on the network left by the conclusion of American Idol earlier this year.
Shazam first began expanding into TV in 2012, teaming up with several brands to make their Super Bowl commercials Shazam-enabled. Last year, it was announced that the mobile phone app will soon let users to identify sights as well as sounds.
