Update #1: (May 3, 2023): The person tapped to replace Jamie Foxx as host of the Fox music competition series “Beat Shazam” has been revealed.

According to reports, Nick Cannon will be filling in as a guest host for season six of the game show amid Jamie’s ongoing hospitalization.

As of now, it’s unclear if Jamie will make a return during the upcoming season.


Original story: (May 3, 2023): Another project is moving forward without Jamie Foxx as he deals with a health issue.

According to reports, the new season of “Beat Shazam” will look a little different. The Fox series is a musical game show where players compete for a large monetary prize by identifying songs. Jamie Foxx is one of the executive producers for the project and he also serves as the host alongside his daughter Corinne Foxx.

However, new reports are claiming that filming for the upcoming season of the game show has kicked off and the “Collateral” actor has been replaced as the host due to the fact that he remains in the hospital and is unable to film. 

Corinne Foxx has reportedly decided that she won’t be on season six of the show– set to air on May 23 – so she can stick by her father’s side during his recovery.

According to reports, sources close to Jamie Foxx have shared that he needs all the prayers he can get from fans, pleading with his supporters to “pray for Jamie.”

As you may recall, the Oscar-winning actor wasn’t able to appear on set for the final days of filming for his upcoming project “Back In Action” because he was admitted to an Atlanta hospital for a “medical complication” last month.

The reason for his hospitalization remains undisclosed. Initially, producers put the movie on pause, however, filming eventually resumed and Jamie’s remaining scenes were reportedly filmed with a body double.

As previously reported, on Apr. 12 Corinne Foxx announced the shocking news that Jamie was in the hospital. However, she didn’t provide in-depth details about what happened to her famous father. Corinne, 29, wrote:

“From the Foxx Family: 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 added:

“We know how beloved he is and appreciate your prayers. The family asks for privacy during this time. 

Much love,

The Foxx Family.”

Days after his hospitalization, insiders close to the 55-year-old comedian gave an update on his health and revealed that he’s “doing a lot better.”

In addition, they said that the “Ray” actor is “communicating now, and that’s good news.”
