Twitter goes crazy after ‘The Four’ announces shocking winner

The finale of Season 2 of The Four: Battle For Stardom on Thursday came down to rapper Sharaya J and singer James Graham. Both were original members of The Four in Episode 1, but Graham lost his seat at one point during the season and had to earn it back last week, while Sharaya J went undefeated in every challenge and held her seat all season. Naturally, Graham was announced the winner by Sean “Diddy” Combs.

The judges — Combs, DJ Khaled, and pop star Meghan Trainor — said their decision would be based on each artist’s body of work, which is why the results came as a shock to fans on Twitter:


Fans were also quick to mention that Sharaya J has being doing more than performing this season:


Both performers took risks early in the show when Sharaya J did “Juicy” by Notorious B.I.G., and Graham took on Michael Jackson’s “Rock With You.” Combs liked Sharaya J’s performance but wasn’t sold on Graham’s.

“I didn’t like it,” he said blankly. “I didn’t like it at all.”

And even though Sharaya J impressed once again with an original song in the final battle, it was Graham’s take on Coldplay’s “Fix You” that sealed his victorious fate.

But the best news, and perhaps the most emotional moment of the night, came when Sharaya J gave an update on her battle with stage two breast cancer: My last visit … to the doctor, she checked, and my tumor that I did have in my right breast was gone.”
