Shazam, the world's leading media discovery company, today announces that "American Idol" will be Shazam-enabled through the rest of the season to give fans another way to experience more of their favorite show in real time. Now, when they use Shazam while watching the program, fans can get immediate access to the song list with links to buy the music for all the performers; links to Twitter feeds from insiders and the general
public; links to the official social media channels; and video and photos from www.americanidol.com.
Tune Wednesday nights 8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed on FOX, when the remaining AMERICAN IDOL finalists perform songs from the eighties. When fans use Shazam anytime during the show, they will have a quick and easy way to access: * List of songs -- see what the finalists are performing with links to buy the music both by the finalist and the original artist. * www.americanidol.com video and photos -- see additional videos and photos of the show, including clips from previous episodes. * Sharing -- get in the national conversation! Follow the Tweets from "insiders" and the public and share your own thoughts about the show on Facebook and Twitter!
"As we surpass more than 200 million users worldwide, this initiative marks another major achievement for Shazam -- AMERICAN IDOL is the first live series following the successful Shazam for TV integration of this year's Super Bowl and GRAMMY Awards. We're really excited to make another flagship show Shazam-enabled, after the world's biggest sporting event, the biggest night in music, and now television's most-watched show," said Andrew Fisher, Shazam CEO.
