The beat goes on this summer. Nick Cannon Will Replace Jamie Foxx as ‘Beat Shazam’ Guest Host Amid Hospitalization during its sixth season, the show confirmed on Wednesday. The news comes amid Foxx’s hospitalization in Atlanta after suffering an emergency “medical complication” three weeks ago.
Foxx’s daughter, Corinne, who serves as a DJ on the show, also seems to be sitting out of upcoming episodes as TMZ reports that she remains by the Oscar winner’s side in the hospital. According to the show’s announcement, Kelly Osbourne will fill in for Corinne as guest DJ. Beat Shazam is filmed in Ireland and is scheduled to air on Fox beginning May 23.
“Beat Shazam has been an unscripted mainstay on the FOX schedule for six seasons and counting. This season, not wanting fans of the game show to miss a minute of fun, Nick Cannon has offered to fill in as guest host for his friends, Jamie and Corinne Foxx. Kelly Osbourne will be filling in as guest DJ,” a statement shared on Instagram read. “Everyone at FOX Entertainment wishes Jamie well as he continues his recovery and we greatly appreciate Nick’s willingness to jump in and help this summer.”
Corinne first announced that her father had suffered from an unspecified health crisis on April 12.
“We wanted to share that, my father, Jamie Foxx, experienced a medical complication yesterday. Luckily, due to quick action and great care, he is already on his way to recovery,” she said at the time.
