Actor in Fox's 'Rent' is injured and the show wasn't live

Rent: Live! set to air on FOX Sunday night

Due to the untimely injury, Fox told The Hollywood Reporter that some recorded segments from Saturday's dress rehearsal will be used during the live broadcast, a tactic that has been used previously in live musical broadcasts.

This time the cast includes Broadway veteran Brandon Victor Dixon, recording artists Tinashe and Mario, and Vanessa Hudgens of "High School Musical".

In a statement, Fox confirmed to TV Guide: "Last night during a live performance of Fox's production of Rent, one of the actors, Brennin Hunt, was injured". But despite the injury, the network promised that the broadcast would go on, and during the first commercial break, the cast explained that much of Sunday's show would be pre-taped. "In the spirit of "RENT", everyone - producers and cast, original and current - is dedicated to ensuring that tonight's broadcast must, and will, go on", they said in a statement.

The final act was upheld as a live performance with the injured actor sitting on a table with his leg, bound in a black cast, propped up on a chair.

Democrats knew that after Trump made his speech and proposal Saturday - and now are prepared to make their counteroffer. The letter was essentially a dare to Pelosi to prevent him from delivering the State of the Union in the Chamber.

CNN Entertainment said: "Anyone who has seen Rent on stage, in all its abundant glory, likely remembers the wallop that it delivered in person, and Fox's telecast couldn't help but feel like a pallid imitation".

The rest of the cast joined in for the musical's major numbers, and as it came to a close, the episode faded to black and then came back up on the set, only now the entire cast - mostly out of costume - stood together on stage with a message for those watching at home.

"'But Rent has always been about community, resiliency and bouncing back, so the show must go on", added Valentina, who plays Angel. They've showered me with love and kindness, which is the essence of this musical, and I am just truly honored and blessed to be a part of this Rent family, and I hope you guys enjoy tonight'. Rather than participate in the final choreography, Hunt remained seated.
