The Four’s panel also includes singer Meghan Trainor and record executive Charlie Walk. Fergie’s name had previously been circulated as one of the potential judges but FOX opted to utilize her as the host.
“Fergie is a genuine superstar,” said Rob Wade, FOX’s President of Alternative Programming and Specials. “She’s fierce, she’s a force in her own right and she knows exactly what these singers are going through. So who better than her to help guide them as they fight their way to the finish.”
The Four is scheduled to premiere on January 4 at 8 p.m. EST/PST. The six-episode event begins with four singers from a variety of genres who compete with newcomers trying to knock them out of the competition. The last singer standing wins the career guidance of all the industry powerhouses on the panel.
