Beat Shazam follows three teams of two players who each compete through five rounds to identify a series of songs, banking money for each correct answer. After the fifth round, the highest-scoring team plays head-to-head against the Shazam app, attempting to increase their winnings by naming up to six songs before it can identify them. Any team that beats Shazam on all six songs wins a grand prize of $1 million.
Beat Shazam incorporates many of the same elements as Name That Tune. The teams go head to toe with popular app Shazam in order to get to the grand prize. Shazam identifies songs for you and in this game, you have to identify the song before it does.
An interesting game but lacking a lot of originality, Shazam’s strength is its charismatic host. Since their inceptions on television, game shows have become an easy way to make money and keep people engaged with programing during the off season. While a lot has changed on the surface of television there are still many things that remain the same, the ongoing popularity of game shows.
