Demi Lovato arrives at the Marc Jacobs Spring 2017 fashion show during New York Fashion Week at the Hammerstein Ballroom on Sept. 15, 2016 in New York City.  

Demi Lovato was scheduled to appear on Fox's Beat Shazam on Tuesday night (July 24), but in the hours after her reported hospitalization for an apparent overdose, the network announced plans to air a different episode.   

"Tonight's previously scheduled episode of Beat Shazam featured a guest appearance by Demi Lovato," Fox Broadcasting Company said in a statement. "In light of recent reports, we have decided to replace the episode of Beat Shazam with another all-new episode. Our thoughts go out to Demi and her family.”     

The pop star's most recent tweet was advertising the show that evening. The episode was filmed back in December 2017, along with the rest of season 2 of the Jamie Foxx-hosted game show. Beat Shazam hasn't announced which episode will replace Lovato's.    

Lovato was rushed to the hospital earlier in the day following an apparent heroin overdose, according to TMZ. Sources later told People magazine that she is now in "stable" condition.
