EVVIE McKINNEY CROWNED FIRST-EVER WINNER OF FOX'S "THE FOUR: BATTLE FOR STARDOM"

Tonight, Evvie McKinney from Memphis, TN, was crowned the first-ever winner of THE FOUR: BATTLE FOR STARDOM. The music competition series, hosted by Fergie, features 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 first-ever champion, securing a record deal with Republic Records and the title of an iHeartMedia "On The Verge" Artist.

THE FOUR: BATTLE FOR STARDOM is FOX's highest-rated new unscripted series in nearly four years both among Adults 18-49 and Total Viewers. Last week's penultimate episode posted THE FOUR's highest ratings yet among A18-49 and Total Viewers, establishing a new season high (2/1/18: 1.5/6 L3, up +15% vs. premiere) and marking a third week of consecutive growth among Adults 18-49 (L3: 1.2 > 1.3 > 1.4 > 1.5) and Total Viewers (L3: 3.6 mil > 3.8 mil > 4.2 mil > 4.3 mil).
