R&B singer Candice made her first appearance during Week 2, though she was later eliminated and then saved by the judges. And 16-year-old Zhavia was the season’s first challenger who was brought back last week following her recent elimination.

4. What happened to Charlie Walk?
At the end of Thursday’s two-hour finale, all-star judges Sean Combs, DJ Khaled and Meghan Trainor will determine which of the final four deserves to be named iHeartRadio’s “On the Verge” artist and awarded a recording contract. But, hey, weren’t there originally four judges? In the wake of allegations of inappropriate behavior, the fourth judge, Charlie Walk, left the series after the filming of last week’s fifth episode. “Out of respect for the contestants, my fellow judges and everyone involved with the show, I have made the decision not to attend the finale of ‘The Four,'” Walk said in a statement. “I do not want my presence to be a distraction.”
