Throughout the first four episodes of Fox’s new reality TV show “The Four: Battle For Stardom,” nine artists have been eliminated after previously claiming a chair. In Episode 5, the judging panel comprised of Sean Combs, DJ Khaled, Meghan Trainor and Charlie Walk will bring back at least one of those rejected hopefuls for a second chance at the top prize. Which former member of The Four would you like to see return to the competition? Vote in our poll below and sound off in the comments section about this new competition series hosted by Fergie.
Candice Boyd – The 28-year-old R&B singer won over the panel with a passionate performance of “I’m Going Down” in week two. She then challenged the Aussie heartthrob, Ash, and out-sang him with her rendition of “Dangerous Woman.” Just one week later Candice lost her chair to Tim Johnson Jr., despite giving her best performance of the series with “Here.”
Cheyenne Elliott – At 23 years old, this ambitious songstress is the descendant of pop music royalty. The granddaughter of Dionne Warwick and cousin of Whitney Houston broke into the series with her performance of “Wings” in week two. She then lasered in on Lex, a hip-hop artist in the original Four. Cheyenne stole Lex’s seat with a performance of “Too Good at Goodbyes” before losing her spot one week later to another hip-hop artist, Rell.
Rell Jerv – This 24-year-old rapper has the distinction of being the only artist to perform his own original music throughout the series. He first impressed the panel with his catchy audition song, “Pools,” in week 3. After advancing, Rell decided to challenge Cheyenne and defeated her with a blistering performance of “I Own It.” One week later, Rell fell to Nick Harrison, a fellow hip-hop artist who remains in The Four today.
Elanese Lansen – The 22-year-old Latin/pop singer was chosen as an original member of The Four. Her time was limited, however, when Elanese fell victim to the very first challenge of the series. After her performance of “Echame la Culpa,” she lost her chair to 16-year old Zhavia.
Lex Lu – At 32 years old, this rapper was the oldest original member of The Four. Her fun fashion choices and charismatic personality won the audience over when she defeated her first challenger, Illakriss, with a performance of “Wild Thoughts.” One week later, her performance of “Bad and Boujee” lacked the energy it needed and she lost her chair to Cheyenne.
Ash Minor – It was no secret that this 23-year-old pop singer from Australia was chosen as an original member of The Four as much for his charm and good looks as his voice. But this heartthrob could indeed carry a tune, although his performance of “Adorn” in week two was not enough to keep him in the competition. He was defeated by Candice while Meghan was left in tears.
Blair Perkins – The original R&B singer in The Four knew how to work the stage like a pro and had a voice worthy of praise. But the 25-year-old had only one chance to show off his talent. After performing “Stay With Me” in the final challenge of week one, Blair lost his chair to Saeed.
Saeed Renaud – At 37 years old, this Grammy-winning songwriter is the oldest in the competition thus far. His large frame and loveable personality won over the audience immediately, but it was his audition of “Run to You” that floored the panel. In his challenge, he took down Blair with a performance of “Love Me Again,” before losing his chair the following week to Jason Warrior. Fergie burst into tears at his elimination.
Zhavia – This outspoken 16-year-old is the youngest in the competition and was considered the front-runner to win it all by the panel up until her elimination in week four. She broke into The Four after her audition of “Location” led her into a challenge with Elanese. She defeated the original member of The Four with a performance of “Unforgettable.” Two weeks later she defended her chair with “Killing Me Softly with His Song” but in week four her performance of “Diamonds” was not enough to stop Kendyle Paige from stealing her seat.
