About Don’t Forget the Lyrics!

Contestants’ musical memory is challenged, as they get one song closer to winning $1 million if they “Don’t Forget the Lyrics!” Contestants choose songs from different genres, decades and musical artists. Then they take center stage to sing alongside the studio band as the lyrics are projected on screen — but when the music stops and the words disappear, the contestants must belt out the correct missing lyrics. If they sing nine songs correctly, they are presented with a No. 1 hit and attempt to sing the final missing lyrics for the top prize of $1 million.

The weekly episode of Don’t Forget the Lyrics! airs every Thursday at 9/8 C on FOX. Available to stream on Hulu the next day.

BEAT SHAZAM is an interactive game show that pits teams of two against the clock and each other as they attempt to identify the biggest hit songs of all time. In the end, the team with the most money banked will outlast the competition and go against Shazam, the popular song identification app, for the chance to win up to $1 million dollars.

Don’t miss the weekly episode of Beat Shazam every Tuesday at 8/7 C on FOX. Available to stream on Hulu the next day.
