“The Four” is going to be Fergalicious.
Fergie has been tapped to host Fox’s new singing competition, the network announced Monday.
“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.”
The “Glamorous” singer leads an already announced panel of Sean “Diddy” Combs, DJ Khaled, Meghan Trainor and recording executive Charlie Walk.
“The Four” will aim to replace “American Idol,” which was canceled in 2015 before being revived at ABC.
NBC also has its own singing competition show in “The Voice.”
As opposed to the other shows, “The Four” will run as a six-week limited run, beginning with four preselected singers who will attempt to hold onto their spots as new challengers try to knock them out of the competition each week.
“Fergie is a genuine superstar,” Fox president alternative programming and specials Rob Wade said in a statement.
“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.”
