Jamie Foxx Makes Return To ‘Beat Shazam’ For Season 7

The show will return for season 7 on Tuesday, May 28, at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

After being unable to host Beat Shazam for season 6 due to being hospitalized after a health scare, comedian and host Jamie Foxx will be making a return for season seven.

Foxx released a trailer for the upcoming season, slated to debut in May. The trailer shows that Foxx and his daughter, Corinne, who is a co-host of the program, are returning.

The network announced that the Any Given Sunday actor is back. The show will return for season 7 on Tuesday, May 28, at 8 p.m. ET/PT. It will also be shown on the Hulu streaming platform.

“Jamie and Corinne are the heart and soul of Beat Shazam,” said Allison Wallach, FOX Entertainment’s president of unscripted entertainment, in a written statement.

“As our undeniably dynamic father-daughter hosting team, they bring a relationship like no other to a show like no other, and it’s wonderful having them back on set this season.”

In April 2023, reports started hitting the news cycle about Foxx being hospitalized for an undisclosed illness. His daughter, Corinne, posted a message on her Instagram account informing people that her father was recovering after the medical emergency. Word of his health scare started popping up one day after the comedian was photographed in Atlanta on the set for his Netflix film Back in Action.

On Dec. 4, the talented artist appeared at the Critics Choice Association’s Celebration of Cinema and Television: Honoring Black, Latino and AAPI Achievements to accept the Vanguard Award. After receiving a standing ovation when he went to collect the award, he said that taking a walk to the podium was something he couldn’t do “six months ago.”

“I wouldn’t wish what I went through on my worst enemy because it’s tough,” Foxx said.

He continued, “I have a new respect for life. I have a new respect for my art. I watched so many movies and listened to so many songs, trying to have the time go by. Don’t give up on your art, man, don’t give up.”

Check him out when the show returns in May.
