Fergie is coming to Fox.
The singer has been chosen to host the network’s new music competition show ‘The Four.’
“I am very excited and proud to be the host of ‘The Four: Battle for Stardom,’” Fergie said in a statement.
“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. 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.”
You may or may not have heard, but ‘The Four’ is a music competition show featuring Diddy, DJ Khaled, Meghan Trainor and record exec Charlie Walk as judges.
Unlike rival shows like NBC’s ‘The Voice’ and ABC’s newly-revived ‘American Idol,’ ‘The Four’ picks up past the audition phase of the competitions.
The finalists, chosen from their auditions, will try to defend their coveted spots on the stage, as they are challenged individually by new singers determined to replace them. Each week, if any of the four are outperformed, they’ll go home and their challengers will take their place.
Those challengers could be fans who had been sitting on a couch one week, and singing onstage the next. Viewers will get the chance to literally submit audition tapes. Similar to American Idol, viewers will be able to vote from home on Four contestants. More specifically, TV watchers will get to decide who is brought on the show by voting on the available streamed auditions and influencing which challengers will take on ‘The Four’.
If the existing four singers outperform their challengers, then they survive to sing another week, until the end of the season, when the singers have safely secured their spots on stage and face off against each other, resulting in one being named the winner.
We’re slightly over the music competition shows, but we’ll give it a go.
