FOX released photos of The Four challengers who will be competing for a seat this week. From the photos, it looks like these six are ready to EAT! Of course, only four could challenge at the most so not all of these will have a chance to earn a seat. But who are these new challengers? And can any of them overtake this dynamic Four? Let’s take a look at what we know so far!

Katt Gerardi

Katt Gerardi is a self-proclaimed “soulful gangster.” Her covers on YouTube include Amy Winehouse, Drake, and Kanye West. She definitely has some soul but also has an indie vibe to her sound. Knowing how the judges have felt about similar singers, it will be interesting to see if she gets a challenge!

Dylan Jacob

Dylan Jacob is a 15-year-old rapper from Las Vegas. He does a lot of freestyle raps and seems to have a good flow from his videos online. Could we see another rap battle on primetime? If he gets a challenge, we could see him battle it out with Sharaya J.

Jade Milan

Jade Milan has a background in musical theater! She played Young Nala in The Lion King on Broadway in 2010. She is around 20 years old now and her latest videos were her singing gospel music. With such a big voice and experience, she could be a threat.

THE FOUR: BATTLE FOR STARDOM: Challenger Noah Barlass performs in the “Week Five” episode of THE FOUR: BATTLE FOR STARDOM airing Thursday, July 5 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. CR: Michael Becker / FOX. © 2018 FOX Broadcasting Co.

Noah Barlass

Noah Barlass, AKA NOAHsings, considers himself a “Alternative Pop R&B” artist. He is from a small town in Oklahoma, where he grew up singing in church. By the age of fifteen, Noah had already toured the US and recorded two full-length albums. But after being approached by record labels, he decided to take a step back to find his voice. He says James Blake, Beyonce, and Tori Kelly are his inspiration. His covers online include Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, and Adele. His versatility could make him a formidable opponent for James.

THE FOUR: BATTLE FOR STARDOM: Challenger Kateri Bluford performs in the “Week Five” episode of THE FOUR: BATTLE FOR STARDOM airing Thursday, July 5 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. CR: Michael Becker / FOX. © 2018 FOX Broadcasting Co.

Kateri Bluford

Kateri Bluford is another soulful diva. Her social media pages have her singing worship and “gospel remixes” of popular songs. From what I’ve listened to, she has an incredible tone and a smooth sound. She could have the potential to hold her own against someone like Ali.

THE FOUR: BATTLE FOR STARDOM: Challenger Ronnie Smith, Jr. performs in the “Week Five” episode of THE FOUR: BATTLE FOR STARDOM airing Thursday, July 5 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. CR: Michael Becker / FOX. © 2018 FOX Broadcasting Co.

Ronnie Smith, Jr.

Ronnie Smith, Jr. is originally from Miami. His series of “Fedora Sessions” on YouTube show him covering everything from Michael Jackson to Bob Marley to Aaliyah. Overall, he gives me The Weeknd vibes and I’m not hating it! I’m excited to see if he’ll pull out a reggae-style cover on the show.
