On Thursday, Evvie McKinney of Memphis was crowned the first-ever winner of "The Four: Battle For Stardom." The music competition series, hosted by Fergie, featured expert panelists Sean "Diddy" Combs, DJ Khaled and Meghan Trainor.
Over the course of the finale's three rounds, McKinney defeated fellow finalists Candice Boyd, Vincint Cannady and Zhavia. In round one, all four finalists battled for the in-studio audience vote, allowing the winner to choose his/her opponent in round two. McKinney secured the most in-studio audience votes for her powerful rendition of "Proud Mary," and chose to battle Zhavia, whom she beat in round two with an emotional performance of "Ain't No Sunshine." Boyd also advanced to the final round over Cannady, and the two female vocalists battled for the crown. Ultimately, McKinney's performance of "Glory" earned the panelists' votes, and she was named the show's champion, securing a record deal with Republic Records and the title of an iHeartMedia "On The Verge" Artist.
Season two of "The Four: Battle For Stardom" will premiere this summer on FOX. Audition for the show here: thefourmusic.com
