This Sunday's episode will see the final four contestants Casey Bishop, Chayce Beckham, Grace Kinstler and Willie Spence perform their winner's singles, a song inspired by a personal idol and duets of tracks by guest mentor Finneas.

Originally five finalists, contestant Caleb Kennedy exited the show after a video surfaced of him with a friend wearing a white hood similar to that of the Ku Klux Klan.

"I was younger and did not think about the actions, but that's not an excuse," he said about the clip. "I wanna say sorry to all my fans and everyone who I let down."
