In announcing the new series, Walden noted that The Four
is “designed to discover and build a new music star,” which she says has been missing as of late with what she feels has been added focus on celebrity judges. Though she didn’t mention other singing competition shows by name, Walden was all but referring to the upcoming edition of Idol,
which hasKaty Perry,
and The Voice
, which has a stable of star coaches like Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Miley Cyrus
and Jennifer Hudson.
