The singer, who was hospitalized last week for a stomach flu, tweeted a picture of herself with an IV drip in her arm, which lead to campaign officials to seek a replacement for the sick pop star.

Criss' addition becomes the second change for the gala as they've switched from the SLS Hotel to the Beverly Wilshire as ticket demands rose due to Obama's stance on gay marriage. The event is expected to sell out.
