(CNN) -- Nick Cannon is proud of his wife Mariah Carey's "trooper" mentality in the face of her injury.
Carey dislocated her shoulder on Sunday while shooting her latest music promo for her single "#Beautiful" in New York City. Immediately after the accident, she visited New York's Hospital for Special Surgery on the Upper East Side to have her shoulder reset.
Cannon was with the mother of his two children when she sustained the trauma, and he is shocked by how strong Carey was through all the pain.
"She's such a trooper," Nick told the "Today" show Tuesday. "I was going to rush to the hospital with her, [but she said,] 'You get back in there and finish that video!' Then, after they put [her] shoulder back in place, bandaged her all up, she came back to the video early in the morning and finished out everything."
Apparently when Carey went down she donned full diva attire.
"She was in this nice, beautiful gown, heels on and everything, and was kind of on this platform and reached and slipped and fell on her whole side," he said.
Cannon added that his wife's injuries were a little more dramatic than initially reported, as the songstress' bones were also damaged.
"It was pretty serious," he said. "Not only did she dislocate her shoulder, she actually cracked a rib and ... she chipped her shoulder bone."
Despite her injury, it's rumored that Carey will still perform in upcoming shows.
She is set to sing at a free concert on Central Park's Great Lawn July 13, an event in association with Major League Baseball to benefit the Hurricane Sandy Relief.
The singer is currently promoting her album "The Art of Letting Go," which is scheduled for release this year.

Nick Cannon Talks Wild 'N Out & Says He's "Way More Talented" Than Ryan Seacrest
"I'm way more talented than Ryan Seacrest," Nick Cannon told Hip-Hop Wired. "I may not be the most talented person in the world, but I'm way more talented than Ryan Seacrest. He's a great host but what else does he do? Get highlights and wear little suits. I love you, Ryan. But I'm just saying, give me a little more credit."
Clearly Cannon was just joking around, we think. Mariah Carey's hubby also revealed that he is working on a reality show about the Wild 'N Out models (Note: we're sold) as well as what inspired him to get the show back on the air.
Nick Cannon 'Wild 'N Out' 2013: Eminem Asked to Join as Cast Returns to MTV2
Nick Cannon Presents: Wild 'N Out is returning to TV after a six-year hiatus and Cannon, the show's producer and host, wants Eminem to be a part of it.
"I asked Eminem to do it," he told Vibe, in an interview published on July 4. "That'll be an amazing show. That'd be big for hip-hop. But I still think he's a little scared."
Cannon asking for an Eminem cameo on the show may come as a shock to fans, since the rapper has a turbulent history with Mariah Carey. Eminem reportedly started dating Carey, who is now Cannon's wife, in 2001. However, Carey vehemently denied the relationship existed.
In response to Carey's denial, the 40-year-old rapper negatively referenced her twice on his fourth studio album The Eminem Show, released in 2002. He also mentioned her again on The Re-Up, his 2006 compilation album. Three years later, the rapper lashed out at Cannon on the song The Warning from the album Relapse. He reportedly rapped about Cannon, "You're going to ruin my career, you better get one."
Carey retaliated with her own song Obsessed, from her 2009 album Memoirs of Imperfect Angel.
Aside from Eminem, Cannon also said he asked two other superstar rappers to make an appearance on Wild 'N Out: Kanye West and Jay-Z.
"Yo come on man, quit playing,' " Cannon said he told Jay-Z. "He was like 'You really think I'm going to wild out?' "
About getting West on the show, Cannon said, "Kanye is still my man, still one of my close friends. I think this time around, when we shot it, he was in the middle of making the album that's out now."
West appeared in an episode back in 2008 where he memorably freestyled a whole set on stage. While West won't be on the show again this season, Jay-Z's cameo wasn't confirmed or denied.
Confirmed rappers this season include A$AP Rocky, Mac Miller and 2 Chainz. Comedians Lil Duval, Kevin Hart and Mike Epps will also be on the show. Wild 'N Out premieres July 9 on MTV2 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT.
Nick Cannon on Reviving 'Wild 'n Out': 'We're Coming Back to Take the Crown'
THR: Is that one of the biggest differences now versus 2005, when the show began, that everybody expects jokes to land quicker?
Cannon: I call it the ADD generation. If you want to get their attention, you have to hit them hard and hit them fast. I think we’ve done that. But we’ve also incorporated so much stuff from social media and online, like the way we cast the show. I literally went on Twitter and asked who’s the funniest person online. It’s involving all of those brands and all those forms of content and media. I feel like Wild ‘n Out is bringing that. It’s a type of show that can adapt to the way television is structured now, because it’s event TV. You want to be able to talk about the first episode on Twitter, but at the same time you can watch it over and over again, and with some of those competition shows, you can’t really do that. It kind of checks all those boxes and lives in both worlds of being able to repeat well, but then at the same time you get to check [it out] the first time it comes home.
THR: When it was originally on MTV, it was a little ahead of its time. Now it’s a big thing to incorporate social media, for instance, into a show.
Cannon: It’s cool. People would always say that, like, "The show is so ahead of its time. I wish it was still on." Even the fact we’ve seen all the people that it launched, after the show went away: Kevin Hart, Katt Williams. These people continued to do their thing and have a huge online audience. I feel like we were the first ones to start to capitalize on that and now everybody’s doing it, so we’re coming back to take the crown.
