This is it, people! Next week we will find out who the next big superstar will be, as it is the season two finale of The Four: Battle For Stardom. And based on this week's episode, it will be a tight race.
Last week, The Four welcomed two newcomers, as 24-year-old Jeronelle McGee took Noah Barlass' seat, while 17-year-old Leah-Jenea Gaines replaced James Graham.
This week was the comeback episode, and coming back for another chance to take back their seat or to take a seat for the first time, was James Graham, Jesse Kramer, Whitney Reign, Stephanie Zelaya, Ebon Lurks, Carvena Jones, Lil Bri, and Dylan Jacobs.
Kicking off the comeback episode was a performance from current Four members Jeronelle, Leah, Sheraya J., Ali Caldwell ... and an appearance from the comeback of all comebacks, last season's Zhavia, and its winner, Evvie McKinney.
Comeback Battle 1: Stephanie Zelaya vs. Whitney Reign
It was time for the first comeback battle of the night: Stephanie Zelaya vs. Whitney Reign. Up first was Whitney singing Jessie J's "Mamma Knows Best," followed by Stephanie performing Enrique Iglesias's "Bailamos." It was up to the audience to choose a winner to take on one of the Four for their seat, and they picked Whitney.
Whitney chose to go after Ali's seat. Up first, was Ali who sang Mariah Carey's "My All," followed by Whitney performing En Vogue's "Don't Let Go (Love)." The panel had great feedback for both ladies, but they had a tough decision to make. And after a lot of deliberation, Diddy, DJ Khaled, and Meghan Trainor ultimately chose Whitney, sending Ali home. And so, Whitney took the first seat for the finale.
Comeback Battle 2: Lil Bri vs. Dylan Jacobs
The next comeback battle was a rap battle: Lil Bri vs. Dylan Jacobs. The two young rappers both gave Sheraya a run for their money on previous episodes, but weren't able to take her seat. Up first, was Bri putting her spin on DJ Khaled's "All I Do Is Win" followed by Dylan with his own version of Lil Wayne's "A Milli." Afterwards, the audience voted for who they believed should take on one of the four, and they picked Dylan. Then, it was time for the next rap battle of the night, Dylan vs. Sheraya J.
Up first, was Sheraya, who has consistently held her seat on the Four from the very first episode (and is the longest running member of the Four in the show's history). Sheraya performed her version of LL Cool J's "Mama Said Knock You Out," followed by Dylan putting his spin on Mobb Deep's "Quiet Storm."
The panel had incredible things to say about both rappers, but ultimately, they chose Sheraya as the winner, remaining the longest running Four member, and keeping her seat all the way to the finale. However, Diddy let Dylan know that he had received phone calls from two major record labels who were interested in him.
Comeback Battle 3: Carvena Jones vs. Ebon Lurks
The next comeback battle was Carvena Jones (who was an original Four member this season) vs. Ebon Lurks. Up first, was Carvena, who sang Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You," followed by Ebon with Post Malone's "Congratulations." After the audience voted (of the closest battles of the night, as noted by Fergie), it was Carvena who got the chance to take on one of the Four, and she chose to go after Leah-Jenea's seat.
Up first, was Leah, who performed H.E.R's "Focus," which got an airhorn from Khaled, followed by Carvena singing Nina Simone's "Feeling Good." It was up to the panel to decide who would go on to next week's finale, and they picked Leah.
Comeback Battle 4: James Graham vs. Jesse Kramer
The last comeback battle of the night was fan favorite James Graham vs. rock star Jesse Kramer. Up first, was Jesse performing The Beatles's hit "Come Together," followed by James with Sam Smith's "Writing's On The Wall." Afterwards, the audience voted on who they thought should take on Jeronelle for the final seat for the finale, and they chose James. And so, it came down to the final battle of the night: Jeronelle McGee vs. James Graham.
Up first, was Jeronelle, who performed John Legend's "All Of Me," followed by James singing "Without You." Ultimately, it was up to the panel to decide who would be the last person go on to next week's finale, and they picked James. James Graham won his seat back and locked in the finale finale seat of the night.
And with that, all four chairs were locked for the night. Here are your final Four of the who will take their talents to next week's episode — THE FINALE: James Graham, Leah Jenea, Whitney Reign, and Sheraya J.
Next week, we will find out who the winner of season two of The Four: Battle For Stardom will be. Not only will the winner's career launch with the help of the judges, they will also become iHeartRadio's "On the Verge" artist; an artist development program supporting the winner with airplay across iHeartMedia radio stations nationwide.
