The Four Season 2 Finale
In Part 1, the finalists each performed two songs. For the first song, each finalist performed in hopes of winning over the audience. After performing, the audience voted on their favorite performance, and the finalist with the most votes earned the power to choose who they wanted to battle against in the head-to-head challenge. For their second song, each selected pair went head-to-head. The judges picked a winner from each pair to move on to the final battle.
The Four: Battle for a Superstar Season 2 FINALE airs tonight on FOX. Musician, record producer and songwriter Sean “Diddy” Combs, record-producing hitmaker DJ Khaled, and recording artist and songwriter Meghan Trainor return to the show’s “panel of experts.” Pop star Fergie is back as host.
In tonight’s FINAL episode, the Final Four face off against each other for the opportunity to win the ultimate prize: the panel of industry experts will become key players on the winner’s team, a record contract and a lucrative spot as one of iHeartRadio’s On the Verge artists.
Whitney Reign the Four Finale
Whitney Reign Sings Lady Marmalade for her the Four Finale performance:
Whitney Reign – Lady Marmalade by Patti Labelle – STILL BITTER THAT SHE KNOCKED ALI OUT OF THE RUNNING. She had to learn THREE songs she never performed before. Also, she’s having vocal issues. Oh. Sis. Taking on a pretty big song there. The song does compliment her stage style, which involves strutting all over the stage, with a squat thrown in here and there for good measure. Meghan loved her sassy style. Diddy says, “You’ve really really grown.” He admires the way she came back last week. “You found your bag,” he says.

James Graham the Four Finale
Rock With You by Michael Jackson – The singer reclaimed his seat last week after being eliminated the week before. He’s a The Four original. Were these singers advised to choose mellow tunes for this first round? James seems a little nervous tonight. Finally on the last verse, his vocal kicks in. Not his very best performance, but lucky for him, the rest of the group are all under par in this first round. Khaled says “I like what you did…with the high notes. But it didn’t do nothing for me.” He didn’t like the song choice. Meghan disagrees 100 percent. She loves his “Michael” songs. “I thought it was your best one yet.” Diddy says, “I didn’t like it. I didn’t like it at all.” Wow. I agree with Khaled and Diddy. It’s like the pressure is getting to him.

Leah Jenea The Four Finale
True Colors by Cyndi Lauper – Leah is a newbie. The 17 year old secured her seat only two weeks ago. This song is a little mellow at first, but then on the second verse she did kick it up a notch. Still, not sure if that was enough to garner votes. Her tone is gorgeous, the rendition lovely.But it wasn’t WOW. Diddy wasn’t sure she chose the right song until the end of the song, “You got that feeling girl.” Khaled says “That was beautiful.” But he warns her to kick it up a notch next time.

Sharaya J The Sings Four Finale
The Four Finale Behind the Scenes with Diddy & DJ Khaled
Results! The winner of Round One is….Sharaya J Sharaya challenges Whitney Reigns. Smart.She’ll be super easy to pick off. The next battle will be a re-match between James Graham and Leah Jeneah.
Diddy asks Whitney if he smells feel. “Not at all!” she insists. Diddy declares a fear-free zone. Oh boy.
Whitney Reign – Million Reasons by Lady Gaga – After losing her record deal, she was relegated to cleaning rooms for 10 dollars an hour. She’s hungry! “I fought so hard to get here,” she says, “This is the biggest moment of my life.” Oh. This performance highlights all of her vocal weaknesses. Really, she’s better singing upbeat songs that allow her to work the stage. This performance is a yelly, pitchy mess.
Sharaya J – She sheds her red jacket. She means business! Sharaya has been battling cancer all the way through this competition. But she’s hung in there. Sharaya is really lagging here. Still underwhelmed.
Khaled felt like Whitney’s song choice did not represent her. Meghan agrees with Khaled. “I still you think you’re really talented.” Meghan was distracted by the way Sharaya handled the mic. Diddy tells Meghan “wasn’t one of your best performances.” Apparently, she has a sinus infection. “You did your thing with that song,” he tells Sharaya.
Sharaya J vs Whitney Reign Challenge Round 2
Results. The judges decide this round. And the winner is Sharaya J. Whitney Reign is ELIMINATED. Well. That was inevitable. With the judges choosing the winner now, it’s pretty easy to predict the results.
Leah Jenea – Golden by Jill Scott – Leah tearfully admits that she has struggled with her confidence. “To me Leah is perfectly imperfect,” says Diddy. Leah unseated James once…can she do it again? Probably. Not only is she super talented, but the judges REALLY like her. Good song choice for her. And I don’t think all of her choices have been the best. Her stage presence could use some work, but she’s a singer with a tone of potential. A couple of pitchy spots, still her phrasing is beautiful.
James Graham – Hello by Adele – His lowest point in the competition was losing his seat due to a poor song choice. He’s hoping to be redeemed tonight. He’s picked a pretty big song. Finally he picks a good song. He shines on soulful ballads that allow him to emote and show off his rangy vocals. James is totally singing his face off. If the audience were choosing, he’d have this.
Meghan calls Leah “amazing.” and to James, “You sang that song like you were coming for revenge.” Khaled tells both Leah and James that their performances were incredible. “Your journey has just begun,” says Diddy. “I’m so proud of you.” Diddy says to James, “You finally did it kid…you broke through that wall.”
The winner of this challenge is…James Graham. Leah Jenea is Eliminated. Both were good, but James definitely won the round. Meghan says it was a difficult decision.
Sharaya J and James Graham will battle for the crown!
James Graham sings " Fix You"
Sharaya J – Say Less by Sharaya J – Diddy calls Sharaya a “self contained artist.” He feels she has what it takes. Sharaya has been here from day one, winning challenge after challenge. She’s the only one to never be unseated. She performs a diss directed straight at James, at one point sitting right next to him.
James Graham – Fix You by Coldplay – Meghan notes that James has “gnarly fans.” I have no doubt. James is going for the BIG GUNS. It’s another emotional performance from James. He’s going for it. If he loses, it won’t be because he fell short. His phrasing is particularly beautiful here.
“This is going to be the hardest decision ever,” says Meghan. Khaled agrees. He brought some popcorn out, which he’s been tossing around. “It’s like me battling Diddy,” Khaled comments on the artist’s friendship. “Your journey has been incredible,” says Diddy, noting that she performed and wrote songs week after week while undergoing chemo. And Sharaya has fantastic news. The tumor in her breast is gone, according to her doctor. “Every week you hit us with pure entertainment,” Diddy says. And as far as James is concerned, “You just broke through another wall.” He compliments his vulnerability.
And now it’s time to choose the winner. The judges huddle. Sharaya has been in it since day one. But James really brought it, and he has a rabid fan base. Who to choose? We gotta wait until after the break.
And the winner of The Four is…James Graham!!! Ok I’m a little surprised to be honest. HOORAY FOR OCTOBOY! Ha. I wonder if Sharaya’s age figured into the decision.
Viewers react to The Four Season 2 Finale
Ariana Marie For all of you complaining about Ali being gone.. it’s not just about vocals. Both killed it last night. But Whitney has likability and she can perform. She is better all around. Diddy made it clear over and over again that vocals alone don’t cut it. You have to have the whole package. Whitney has that and Ali doesn’t. Plain and simple. Ali is the better singer (not by much) but that’s literally ALL she has. Her attitude will continue to be an issue. She wouldn’t sell out concerts, wouldn’t work well with others, and doesn’t have the likability (which means more money). This is show business.
And as far as Jaronelle… he was classically trained. And you can tell. He hasn’t smoothed out all of his vocals yet and sometimes sounds operatic imo. Personally, that turns me off. James has the whole package.
Maybe stop and pay attention when they tell you what this show is about. Don’t make up the rules yourself and ignore the facts. They want stars. They want the whole package.. because that sells and will continue to sell.
Married Daleys Come on ppl let's be real here…. We all know Diddy is not looking for a "real singer". He is looking for a "pop star". For instance, look at all the ppl he signed in the past… And you wonder why Carvena, Ali, and Jeronelle, ect. got voted off and they could BLOW!!. They're singers in the categories of Jennifer Hudson, Fantasia, Brian Mcknight, and John Legend. He's looking for Day 26 and Danity Kane type of singers and pop stars. And possibly "Bad boy" type of rappers, which is "part"of the reason Sharaya J is still there.
Barbie Jones If Black girl would of dance she would of won but but I bet you now when I'm going with you anyways the girl with cancer going to win
Brandon Bbreezy Cromer Ali should be on tht stage tonight they screwed her. If Whitney wins I’m done wit this show
