Thursday night marked the sixth and final episode of Fox’s The Four: Battle for Stardom, the new singing competition format on Fox. Host Fergie and panelists Sean “Diddy” Combs, DJ Khaled and Meghan Trainor were back, but in the wake of sexual harassment allegations, Charlie Walk did not return.
For the past six weeks, artists have attempted to unseat “the four.” Potential challengers sang solos, and the panelists had to unanimously vote in favor of the newcomer directly challenging a member of the four sitting artists. The challenger then chose one of the four to go head-to-head with, and both artists sang. The decision for who got to stay and who had to go was then in the hands of the live audience. During week five, four artists who were previously eliminated got to come back for another chance.
Now, heading into the finale, the final four were Evvie McKinney, Zhavia, Candice Boyd and Vincint Cannady. Zhavia and Boyd were both comeback artists who prevailed during their second chance. The winning artist, crowned at the end, gets a record contract and the title of iHeartRadio’s On the Verge artists, jumpstarting their career.
The rules on the last night were a little complicated: For round one, each member of the four performed, and the audience voted for their favorite. That artist then got to choose who sang against who in head-to-head battles in round two.
