It was a surprise that American Idol wouldn’t be returning on Fox but it looks like they have filled the void.
Time to get that audition tape ready because The Four: Battle for Stardom comes to the small screen in the new year, with Fergie as your host.
This show will feature four “top-notch singers” battling each week for the chance at a career, also includes a star-making panel comprised of Sean “Diddy” Combs, DJ Khaled, Meghan Trainor, and record label executive Charlie Walk.
“This is a unique and modern show format that I believe will set the standard for the next generation of singing competition series on TV,” said Fergie in a statement. “I am looking forward to being by the contestants’ sides during what could be the most important performances of their lives. Along with these amazing panelists whom I know and love, I hope my experiences as a solo artist and as a member of The Black Eyed Peas can help guide them in their quest to make it in the music industry.”
The Four: Battle for Stardom premieres Thursday, January 4th. Check your local listings for the air time.
