Talk about a daunting task!

British songbird Emeli Sande was tapped to record a 1920’s version of Beyonce’s mega-hit, “Crazy In Love”, for The Great Gatsby soundtrack. Adding to the pressure of covering such an epic song, Bey’s hubby, Jay-Z, was also the executive producer for the soundtrack.

Fox’s The Four: Battle For Stardom will never have a loser, at least according to panelist and show creator, Diddy.

Every week, singers around the country will fight for stardom by doing all they can to stay in the top four of the singing competition show. But while some might get sent home, Diddy tells HipHollywood that there are “no losers in this situation.”

He explained while at last week’s taping, “the people that lose actually win because people don’t agree with what goes on, so now they have a platform.”

The music is not only out of this world, but it’s also just straight up fun. Host Fergie unveiled to HH, “Your heart beats racing, but we also can really laugh at ourselves and have a good time and be idiots.”

She added, “There’s a good amount of we care care that much to be intense and serious and be invested and want to stand behind these artists; but also at the same time we all like to have a good time.”

Panelist DJ Khaled is all about the jovial antics and banter, but he doesn’t want “nobody taking my kindness for weakness.” He told us, “I’m going to give you the keys and let you know how I feel.”

The show is on it’s way to becoming a world renowned phenomenon. Diddy, however, would like to see one thing. “More rappers,” he told HipHollywood. “Rapers don’t have a relationship with shows like this so there’s not that database. So we are doing something original.”

The Four airs on Thursday night’s at 8pm on Fox.
