Jamie Foxx Will Not Host New Season of ‘Beat Shazam’ amid Health Concerns – According to reports, Jamie Foxx and his daughter Corinne Foxx will not appear in the upcoming season of Beat Shazam. According to The Hollywood Reporter, FOX is bringing in Nick Cannon to replace him as host of the musical game show, while Kelly Osbourne will take over as the evening’s DJ.
The news comes amid ongoing health concerns for the 55-year-old Oscar winner. Corinne, 29, claimed in a statement last month that the comedian has been hospitalized since April 11 due to a “medical complication” while in Atlanta filming his latest movie Back in Action.

“We wanted to share that my father, Jamie Foxx, experienced a medical complication yesterday,” she shared on behalf of the Foxx family. The statement continued, “Luckily, due to quick action and great care, he is already on his way to recovery. We know how beloved he is and appreciate your prayers. The family asks for privacy during this time.”
In the weeks since the Ray actor was admitted to the hospital, his loved ones have expressed their support on social media. Friends including Kerry Washington, LeBron James, Martin Lawrence, Tracy Morgan, and Steve Harvey have publicly addressed the star’s private health fight.
“I love Jamie. Jamie’s a good friend of mine…my prayers go up for Jamie,” Morgan, 54, told Entertainment Tonight on April 20. “He’s strong, he’s a fighter, he’s gonna come out of it and he’s good. He’s gonna be stronger and better than ever.”
“I’ve been there. I was on the other side in a coma for 10 days, so I know about being hospitalized,” continued Morgan, referring to his accident in 2014 when a Walmart truck slammed into his limousine, killing his friend James McNair and leaving Morgan with life-threatening injuries.
