Can you identify a classic song by listening to just four-second snippets of the tune? Have you missed listening to a live band playing during the lockdown? And, last but not least are you in love with Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’s Jane Krakowski and 'American Idol' OG judge Randy Jackson? Well! Then there is no better show than this for you.
Kick start 2021 by yelling at your TV as you will be guessing classic melodies along with the contestants. With host Jane Krakowski and bandleader Randy Jackson, the contestants on the show have a chance to win prize money of $100,000 if they guess correctly. But it won’t be that easy. The exceptionally talented live band under the mentorship of Randy Jackson will be playing a version of the song slightly different from the original. As Krakowski describes it, “Kind of like if Beyonce went Bluegrass.”
The official Twitter handle of the game show posted the first look of it and we can’t keep calm. “GET YOUR JAM ON! Enjoy this first look of #NameThatTune — premiering tomorrow on @FOXTV,” the post said.
The following clip of the show on Twitter with the caption, “Watch the Series Premiere of #NameThatTune, tomorrow on FOX 48!” shows us the contestants are in it to win it. The first episode will definitely set certain standards for contestants to follow.
The vintage musical game show 'Name That Tune' first premiered on NBC Radio in 1952. Originally created and produced by orchestra conductor Harry Salter and his wife Roberta Semple Salter, the series featured contestants competing to correctly identify songs being played by an on-stage orchestra or band.
The 2021 version of ‘Name That Tune’ on FOX will test contestants’ music knowledge, as they battle it out in an assortment of challenging musical games for cash and prizes. Each episode will consist of two stand-alone half-hour contests, each pitting two players against each other as they race against the clock to test their knowledge of songs, performed by the live band.
Each contest features a rotating variety of games from the original format, before the iconic Bid-a-Note round. The player with the most money at the end of Bid-a-Note wins the game and takes his or her bank into the Golden Medley bonus round, for a chance to win additional cash and potentially the $100,000 grand prize.
The one-hour series will premiere on FOX on January 6 at 9 pm ET.
