Cannon knows something about guest hosts after Niecy Nash-Betts stepped into his role on The Masked Singer during the fifth season after he tested positive for Covid.

Foxx was hospitalized three weeks ago with a medical complication, revealed by his daughter Corrine Foxx. “We know how beloved he is and appreciate your prayers,” she said.

Beat Shazam is an interactive game show that pits teams of two against the clock, and each other, as they attempt to identify the biggest hit songs of all time. The team with the most money banked will compete against the Shazam app for a chance to win $1 million.

The series is set to return to Fox on May 23.

Beat Shazam was created by Jeff Apploff and Wes Kauble and is produced by Apploff Entertainment, MGM Alternative Television and BiggerStage in association with Shazam. Apploff, Mark Burnett, Barry Poznick, Lauren Zalaznick, Pat Kiely, Sean O’Riordan and Foxx serve as executive producers.

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 statement.
