Dana Walden and Gary Newman, Chairman and CEOs of Fox Television Group, announced that FOX has ordered Armoza Formats’ prime time singing competition series, The Final Four. The local US adaptation will be known as The Four and will be produced by ITV Entertainment in association with Armoza Formats.
The Final Four was developed by Armoza Formats’ in-house development department including Nehama Cohen, Elwin Vizetelly de Groot and Moshiko Cohen. The company’s founder and CEO, Avi Armoza, will serve as an executive producer of the show along with David George, Adam Sher, David Eilenberg, Jessica Sebastian-Dayeh, Simon Thomas, Becca Walker and David Friedman.
The Four begins where most competitions end: with the four finalists. Four super-talented and fiercely competitive singers, chosen from their auditions by the show’s panel of music industry experts, will try to defend their coveted spots on the stage, as they are challenged individually by new singers determined to replace them. Each week, if any of the four are outperformed, they’ll go home and their challengers will take their place.
And those challengers could be fans who had been sitting on a couch one week, and singing onstage the next. Viewers who think they’ve got the talent to compete and unseat the four singers onstage will have the opportunity to submit an audition video. For the first time ever, America will have the chance to decide who is brought onto the show by voting on the available streamed auditions and influencing which challengers will take on The Four and shake up the competition.
If the existing four singers outperform their challengers, then they survive to sing another week, until the end of the season, when the singers have safely secured their spots on stage and face off against each other, resulting in one being named the winner. At stake is the ultimate prize: the panel of industry experts becomes key players on the winner’s team. This elite group of star-makers will help shepherd the winner’s career and be fully invested in making him or her a breakout star.
