It looks like once a host of a show needs a temporary replacement, this particular entertainer is summoned.

With Jamie Foxx currently in recovery for a medical emergency that recently took place, his good friend, Nick Cannon has offered to step in and take over his hosting duties on the hit television show, Beat Shazam. The show, seen locally on Fox is slated to return for Season 6 on May 23.

According to Deadline, the All That performer will fill in for Foxx when filming starts in Ireland. Cannon had stepped in as guest host when talk show host, Wendy Wiliams also went on a medical hiatus in 2019.

Fox released a statement confirming the news of Cannon subbing for Foxx.

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 the 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. 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,” Fox said in a written statement.

Foxx’s daughter, Corinne, is the DJ for Beat Shazam and will also be sitting out this upcoming season as Kelly Osbourne will step in in her absence.

Meanwhile, the In Living Color alum took to his Instagram account to acknowledge the love he has been receiving as he continues to recuperate in the hospital. In an entry on Wednesday, Foxx wrote to his 16 million plus followers by writing, “Appreciate all the love!!! Feeling blessed.”
