Diddy and DJ Khaled Join Fox’s New Show ‘The Four’ as Judges
“This show is going to disrupt the world of competition television and will revolutionize the format," said Diddy in a statement. "We plan on being the best talent show out there, taking it to that next level and making history again. This series is about pure competition, fighting for your survival. Do you want to win? Do you want to be great? We’re giving fans a genuine look at what it takes to make it to the top and stay there — surrounding these up-and-coming artists with the best, turning them into the next generation of stars.”
Khaled shared Diddy's excitement for the series saying, “I’m proud to announce that I will be participating in one of the most important, if not the most important events on television and pop culture… I immediately jumped at the opportunity when I realized Fox shared the same vision as me, and that’s to be the best!”
The hip-hop superstars will be joined by pop star Meghan Trainor and Republic Records Group President, Charlie Walk. The winner of the series will have new music released via Republic Records through Universal Music Group, Variety reports.
