It’s going to be another fun-filled season of “Beat Shazam.”
Triple threat super-star Jamie Foxx is back, helping music fans beat Shazam on the second season of his uber popular game show, and this time he’s getting some help from his daughter, Corinne, who is the show’s newest DJ.
“He called me and said would you be interested and I was like of course,” explained Corinne. “We both love music, it’s been kind of a bonding experience for us, we both like the same kind of music even though [he’s] a lot older than I am, so it just made sense.”
But besides getting a double dose of Foxx on Fox, Jamie spilled the beans about who the surprise guest would be this season.
“Beyonce!,” he said with a sneaky smile before revealing he was just joking. “Yep, we got Beyonce from San Bernardino.”
He then added, “Listen, we know Ed Sheeran is going to [be on], The Chainsmokers, Smokey Robinson, Bell Biv Devoe … a lot of people.”
And as for if Foxx himself will perform, he told us of course, before expressing his excitement for being able to showcase all of his loves – acting, music and comedy – on one platform.
“Ten years ago you wouldn’t have been able to get a way with this, but now everyone does television, movies commercials. I wanted to be in a spot where I owned the show, but at the same time be able to bring joy, and great artist to everyone.”
“Beat Shazam” returns to Fox May 29th at 8/7c.
