FOX introduced The Four: Battle for Stardom TV show back in January of this year. The newest competitive reality TV series for singers ran for 12 episodes over the course of six weeks, and was the network’s top-rated unscripted primetime program. Now it’s back for a second season, just a few months later. Can it attract the summertime audience? Will The Four: Battle for Stardom be cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned.
Solo artist and Black Eyed Peas vocalist Fergie hosts The Four: Battle for Stardom, in which singers face off in hopes of winning a promotional deal with iHeartRadio. During the FOX competition, the contestants, or “gladiators,” are advised by industry pros Sean Combs, DJ Khaled, and Meghan Trainor. In addition to the IHeartRadio promotion, the winner will also benefit by having Combs, Khaled, and Trainor join their team and guide them toward stardom. The season two gladiators are Carvena Jones, James Graham, Stephanie Zelaya, and Sharaya J.
