Fergie To Host New Talent Show ‘The Four: Battle For Stardom’
Fergie has signed on to host a new talent show called The Four: Battle For Stardom. “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,” she told Variety. “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.”
Who are these panelists? Music industry heavy-hitters Diddy, DJ Khaled, Meghan Trainor and Republic Records president Charlie Walk. I have talent show fatigue, but this concept sounds interesting. “Four finalists are named at the beginning of the series, with new contestants competing in subsequent weeks to take one of the coveted four spots,” is how Variety explains the latest addition to Fox’s line-up. This is a smart move for Fergie. One of the reasons Double Dutchess tanked was her low profile and nothing fixes that like prime-time TV.
