'The Four: Battle For Stardom' Spoiler: Which Artists Survived Week Four Of Competition?
FOX's singing competition The Four: Battle for Stardom is in its fourth week. Who rose to the occasion and became a part of The Four?
Zhavia, Jason Warrior, Rell Jerv, and Tim Johnson, Jr. opened the show with Bruno Mars and Cardi B's "Finesse."
Round One: Nicolina
Nicolina, 22, started her music career by posting YouTube videos. Now, she wants the panel to help her pursue a career in music. She tackled The Chainsmokers and Daya's "Don't Let Me Down." Charlie Walk stated that Nicolina was competitive, but she did not give him goosebumps. Meghan Trainor thought that she was uncomfortable on stage. The panel agreed that Nicolina was unworthy of challenging The Four
Round Two: Ravaughn Versus Jason Warrior
Singer-songwriter Ravaughn used to be part of the background vocals for Brandy, Keyshia Cole, and all six seasons of Glee. She met Ne-Yo, and even signed a recording contract. However, Ravaughn could not handle the pressure of having a music career. DJ Khaled recognized the Carson, California native from various recording sessions. For her audition, piece, Ravaughn sang Demi Lovato's "Sorry Not Sorry."
Diddy referred to Ravaughn as a Bad Boy artist and called the performance "sexy." DJ Khaled failed to get the crowd's attention with an air horn, but he complemented Ravaughn's dedication. The panel had to deliberate about Ravaugn's performance, but they decided that she was worthy of challenging The Four.
Ravaughn chose Jason Warrior. Last week, Warrior caused some drama when an artist challenged him.
Warrior sang David Guetta and Sia's "Titanium" and delivered an epic vocal performance that gave the audience the chills. Ravaughn chose Brandy's "Have You Ever." The song was much better than her audition piece.
The panel had opposing views on who won the battle, but the audience chose Warrior, thus, eliminating Ravaughn from the show.
Round Three: Edi Callier
After surviving a diabetic coma, Edi Callier decided to pursue a career in the music industry. Callier was the first artist to decorate the microphone stand with his scarf, Ms. Esmeralda. He sang Nick Jonas' "Jealous," and the crowd fell in love with his showmanship. The Four seemed impressed with the performance, but his sweet vocals did not dazzle Walk. Trainor loved his confidence and vocal riffs. Sadly, all four panelists admitted that Callier was unworthy of challenging The Four.
Round Four: Nick Harrison Versus Rell Jerv
Rapper Nick Harrison wanted one of The Four chairs and a chance to work with Diddy and DJ Khaled. When 28-year-old performed Diddy's "Bad Boy for Life," the rap icons in the panel bobbed their heads. Trainor called him a star, and the show's host, Fergie, complemented his performance. Diddy and DJ Khaled wanted to see a rap battle between Harrison and Rell Jerv.
Harrison stepped up when the panel invited him to perform against Rell. Rell dedicated his next song to his kids, and set the stage on fire with his rendition of "Feeling Alright." He reminded viewers why he could be the next Kanye or Kendrick. Harrison countered Rell's performance with a superb freestyle set.
Trainor wanted to sign Harrison to a label but Walk preferred Rell's performance. The audience took the "All About That Bass" singer-songwriter's side and gave Harrison a seat.
Round Five: Josh Wyper
Josh Wyper met his wife when he was the lead singer of his band, The Pompadoors. He acknowledged the presence of his wife and father before he sang Chris Stapleton's "Tennessee Whiskey." Wyper's voice reminded viewers of Bryan Adams and Rod Stewart. However, Warrior thought it was karaoke. The performance did not move Diddy, and the Adams failed to challenge The Four.
Round Six: Kendyle Paige Versus Zhavia
Kendyle Paige, 20, received an ultimatum from her father. She had until the end of 2018 to pursue a music career and then she had to go to school. Paige picked G-Easy and Bebe Rexha's "Me, Myself And I" for her audition. Paige scared Trainor, but the "No" singer-songwriter did not believe she could beat Tim or Zhavia.
There was a heated debate among the panel members, but after their discussion, the judges decided to give Paige another chance. Paige chose Zhavia, the first artist to beat an original member of The Four.
Zhavia performed her rendition of Rihanna's "Diamonds." While she gave a personal spin to the song, viewers couldn't help but compare her version to La'Porsha Renae's iconic cover of the song during the final season of the FOX version of American Idol.
Paige countered with ZAYN's "Pillowtalk." The audience decided to give Zhavia's chair to Paige, leaving the entire studio in shock. The performance brought Trainor to tears, she didn't believe Paige deserved a shot in challenging The Four. After a hug from Diddy, Zhavia said farewell to the competition.
Next week, more artists will challenge Warrior, Johnson, Harrison, and Paige for the show's grand prize -a music career backed by the panel and the prestigious "On the Verge" Artist award from iHeartRadio.
The producers also wanted fans to invite an eliminated artist to return to the competition.
