Chesapeake Beach native Nick Harrison, 28, posted on his Facebook page on January 23, ” Big News in a few days! Get ready!”… little did his friends, family, and fans know he was getting ready to challenge Rell Jerv on the Fox hit show ” The Four”. The Four is a music based show hosted by Fergie, with panelists P. Diddy, Meghan Trainor, DJ Kahled, and Music Executive Charlie Walk.

Nick performed “Bad Boy for Life”, a song performed by panelist P. Diddy. Meghan Trainor called Nick’s performance “amazing,” while Diddy was looking like he wanted a challenge. Just the same, DJ Khaled told Nick he wanted a head to head battle with Rell Jerv. Khaled got his wish, because with four yes’s from the judges, Nick got the opportunity to go for Rell’s chair.

“First of all, Rell, I see you more making songs” , Kahled; while he told Nick, “I respect what you did on some MC battle stuff.” He added, “At the end of the day, the fans gotta choose.” It appeared Meghan was more Team Nick while Charlie Walk was more Team Rell.

Diddy added, “”It’s about the songs,” then explaining to Rell, “I think Nick showed that he wanted it more than you today.”

Harrison returns to “The Four” next week in the “Comeback Episode”; an episode where fans get to pick four contestants that lost challenges in past episodes, and can re-challenge for their seats back. There are just two shows left before we will find out if Southern Maryland’s own Nick Harrison will be crowned champion. Tune into Fox on Thursday nights at 8 p.m. to follow.
