Nick Cannon is out of the woods.

After undergoing successful treatment for kidney failure, the America's Got Talent host was released from Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center over the weekend and is already plotting his return to the airwaves.

Well, he was strong enough to tweet his congrats to Jay-Z and Beyoncé yesterday...

"Nick Cannon was released over the weekend to be with his family," rep Tracy Nguyen said in a statement. "He is resting and recovering at home and would like to thank everyone who has expressed concern, well wishes and prayers. He plans to return to his live morning radio show broadcast Rollin' with Nick Cannon on 92.3 NOW FM on January 17th, 6-10am EST."

What a trouper! (And what a plug!)

Cannon was first hospitalized with "mild kidney failure" early last week while he and Carey were vacationing in Aspen. He was transferred to Cedars, where he received a haircut and underwent surgery.

"Recovering... about to be stronger than ever! !" he tweeted Friday.

Carey wrote yesterday, apparently from home: "Up w/NC watching@BishopJakes -a true inspiration as always. Nick is getting better+we love+appreciate all the ongoing kind words!"
