Beat Shazam is a FOX game show where contestants compete to identify songs based on their lyrics from a wide range of genres.

As the show must go on, fans eagerly anticipate the return of Foxx, whose infectious enthusiasm and charm have made Beat Shazam an engaging and beloved experience. Until then, Cannon and Kelly Osbourne will undoubtedly strive to uphold the show’s legacy, maintaining the same level of excitement and entertainment that fans have come to expect.
