Shazam Ranks the Oscars’ Top Performances [Infographic]


Music and television identification app Shazam has released an infographic, detailing consumer interest in the musical numbers from the 2015 Oscars. While the Academy Awards may put movies on center stage, viewers also expressed interest in musical numbers, with Adam Levine and Maroon 5’s performance of “Lost Stars” earning the most “Shazams” of the night.

Other top “Shazamed” Oscars moments include Rita Ora’s performance of “Grateful,” and Tim McGraw’s performance of “I’m Not Gonna Miss You.”

The Shazam app launched on iOS in 2008, and is used to identify songs in a user’s surroundings. By 2011, the app was expanded to support television identification, as users can “Shazam” television programs and commercials to receive more information (and even special offers) about the shows and products they’re viewing.

Shazam is available to download for free on the iTunes App Store and Google Play.
