Hollywood star Jamie Foxx snapped in Dublin while filming new game show Beat Shazam




HOLLYWOOD superstar Jamie Foxx has arrived in Ireland to film a new game show he is filming here.

The Oscar-winning American is pictured here leaving the upmarket Brown Thomas store in Dublin’s Grafton Street on Friday evening.

Jamie and his entourage left the store laden with designer bags and stopped to take photos with fans who had gathered outside the store.

He and his entourage were then taken away in a fleet of Range Rovers.

Earlier today Jamie posted an Instagram story saying ‘It doesn’t rain all the time in Ireland’ with a panoramic shot of the Irish countryside with the words ‘Peace Ireland sun #rare’ to his 14.3million Instagram followers.

The Sunday World previously revealed how the star planned to spend a week in Dublin to host a game show.

It will feature a series called Beat Shazam, in which contestants can win up to $1 million in prizes.

The Texan hosts the show with his daughter Connie and the contestants are all Americans, with the audience being Irish.

The show is made by the same Irish production company that recently hosted the music show Name That Tune, which was presented by American Idol judge Randy Jackson and actress Jane Krakowski.

Filming of that show had to be halted late last year after a Covid outbreak at Fonthill Studios in west Dublin, with Krakowski and several other crew members stricken with the virus.

Guest judge Mel B managed to film her segment of the show before the outbreak and when she resumed filming in Dublin earlier this year, Kelly Osbourne flew in to be another star mentor.

The Dublin production of Name That Tune also featured American contestants, with an Irish audience.

The Irish creators of the Dublin productions of Beat the Shazam and Name That Tune are Bigger Stage.

The company was recently formed by former Virgin Media chief executive Pat Kiely and its highest-profile production was The Big Deal, which was hosted by Vogue Williams and had judges including Boy George, Jedward, Deirdre OKane and JLS star Aston Merrygold.

In addition to father and daughter duo Foxx, Beat Shazam also stars actress October Gonzalez.

Jamie (54) recently said everyone was going to do a game show.

He further added that the world has changed and said that in ancient times, one made movies and one had a scarf around one’s neck and one could only do these things.

Speaking of Beat Shazam, Jamie Foxx said the show was musical, fun and family-friendly.”

Beat Shazam airs on the Fox network in the United States and has over three million viewers every week.

Its format centers around three teams of two players who each compete through four rounds to identify a series of songs, cashing in cash for each correct answer.

After the fourth round, the team with the highest score faces off against the Shazam app, attempting to increase their winnings by naming up to six songs before they can identify them.

Any team that beats Shazam on all six songs wins the grand prize of $1 million.

So far, three teams in the five series to date have won the jackpot.

The show had a slew of star guests including Mariah Carey, MC Hammer, Michael Bolton, Snoop Dogg, Smokey Robinson, TLC, Joey McIntyre, Lance Bass and Shaquille ONeal.

An episode featuring a guest appearance by Demi Lovato was scheduled to air in July 2018, but a new, different episode aired instead due to Lovato being hospitalized after an apparent overdose.

The episode eventually aired in September 2018 with Lovato’s appearance removed.

Jamie Foxx made his breakthrough in 1991 when he joined the cast as a featured actor on the comedy sketch show In Living Color until the show ended in 1994.

Following this success, Foxx was given his own television sitcom The Jamie Foxx Show.

The father-of-two then became widely known for his portrayal of Ray Charles in the 2004 biopic Ray, for which he won the Best Actor Oscar.
