Reality shows come up with the new concept of live performances by contestants. They are different from other shows and involve competitions among those who take part in them. One such example of a reality television show is The Four: Battle for Stardom. This American reality show made its debut streaming three years ago on 4th January.
The credit behind the creation of this show goes to Elwin Groot. After the success of the first season, came the renewal of season 2 by two-channel networks (Fox & ITV Entertainment). Now all expectations are on the new third season. But till now no official confirmation has come for its release.
The hosting of the show is done by a team of judges including DJ Khaled, Charlie Walk, Fergie, Meghan Trainor, and Sean Combs. All are popular in the field of music and singing. In the initial season of The Four: Battle For Stardom, the music executive Charlie quit the show. So now there are only 3 panelists left. This reality is also called The Four in short. Phil Heyes is the person behind its direction.
Apart from panelists, the judgment on the performances made by contestants is also done by the studio audience. Whichever contestant comes out the winner, he or she becomes the recipient of a contract from a record label company based in New York and also on an American free radio network. In the previous seasons (1st & 2nd) James and Evvie became the winners. Six people are executive producers of The Four reality show.
It is often noticed that some of the shows are inspired by other shows from different countries. The Four is one such example. This concept of this show was inspired by a show called The Final Four in Israel. If you have been watching The Four from the beginning then you must be knowing that this American reality show is not like other reality shows that have stage auditions. The decision of challengers pitting against The Four is rested upon the panelists.
According to the rules of the reality show to be in the Four, the challenger has to pit against the new artist. After the final concluding part of the season, the singer who remains, at last, is declared the winner of The Four: Battle For Stardom. Let us get to know more about this show in this article.
