Plot Synopsis

Hosted by Fergie with panelists Sean 'Diddy' Sean Combs, DJ Khaled, Meghan Trainor, and Charlie Walk, THE FOUR: BATTLE FOR STARDOM is a six-episode singing competition series that begins where the other shows end: with the best. These four top-notch singers, spanning all music genres, fight each week to defend their coveted seats on the show, as determined newcomers challenge them and try to knock them out of the competition. The singer who is the last standing at the end of the competition earns the ultimate prize: the panel of industry experts becomes key players on the winner's team. This elite group of starmakers guide the winner's career to help make him or her a breakout star. As part of the grand prize, the winner will be named an iHeartRadio "On The Verge" artist. iHeartRadio's On The Verge program provides artists with unparalleled national reach through on-air radio exposure, as well as digital and social support across iHeartMedia's powerful range of music and entertainment platforms. On Sunday, December 31, 2017 at 9:54pm ET/PT, FOX premiered a six-minute sneak peek of THE FOUR: BATTLE FOR STARDOM, which debuted on Thursday, January 4, 2018 from 8-10pm. At the end of Season 1, soul singer Evvie McKinney, from Memphis, TN, bested three other finalists -- R&B singer Candice Boyd, gospel singer Vincint Cannady, and 16-year-old Zhavia -- and was crowned the first-ever champion, receiving the ultimate prize: career mentorship by the panel of experts. Season 2 of THE FOUR: BATTLE FOR STARDOM premiered on Thursday, June 7, 2018 from 8-10pm ET/PT on FOX, with Sean "Diddy" Combs, DJ Khaled and Meghan Trainor returning as panelists, alongside Fergie as host. After a worldwide search, four recording artists, spanning all music genres, have been chosen to enter the competition of a lifetime. Thes four singers -- Carvena Jones (Jackson, MS); James Graham (Chelmsford, Essex, England); Stephanie Zelaya (Guatemala City, Guatemala); and Sharaya J. (Atlanta, GA) -- will fight to defend their coveted spots on the stage, as newcomers challenge them and try to knock them out of the competition.
