The second week of FOX’s The Four is in the books, and I’m still trying to figure out how anyone is supposed to get emotionally attached to the singers on this show.
Remember, the four opened with an all-star panel including Charlie Walk, Meghan Trainor, Sean “Diddy” Combs and DJ Khaled telling us how great the original four was.
But by the end of week one, only two of the original four — Lex Lu and Ash Minor — had retained their seats. Elanese and Blair Perkins lost the first time they were challenged; Ash couldn’t be eliminated because he wasn’t challenged.
Well, by the end of week two, Lex and Ash were gone, too. In fact, so is Saeed Renauo, one of last week’s successful challengers.
Note to producers of The Four, it’s a bit tough to get attached to singers if you watch them perform once or twice and then they’re gone.
In fact, you’ll note that we’ve now had six challenges on The Four. Five times out of six, the challenger has won.
So at the end of week two, our new four are Candice Boyd, Cheyenne Elliott, Jason Warrior and Zhavia, who didn’t face a challenge this time around.
And I can’t wait to see the show’s week two ratings. If there’s a Season 2 of The Four, I’ll be surprised.
Here’s a recap in photos. One challenge, Kayla Ember, didn’t even make the FOX publicity photo gallery. She sang “Bad at Love” and got only one yes vote from the panel.
