The Four didn't dwell on Charlie Walk's absence.
The Republic Records president was missing from Thursday night's finale of the singing competition show, a week after separating himself from the series following allegations of sexual harassment.
At the top of Thursday's episode, Fergie introduced DJ Khaled, Meghan Trainor and Diddy as the show's panelists, before noting that Walk, a judge on the show, was not in attendance.
"As you can see, we're without one of our panelists tonight. Charlie Walk will not be attending tonight's finale. But four artists are back to battle it out one last time with it all on the line," she said, before Evvie McKinney, Vincint Cannady, Candice Boyd and Zhavia emerged to perform Lady Gaga's "The Edge of Glory."
A few fans quickly took to Twitter to comment on Walk's abrupt exit from the show, but many others wondered why he was suddenly missing.
I love how the four is just acting like Charlie walk was never a judge. Like who is he? We don’t know him.— LEMON (@DrHansenCabello) February 9, 2018

There are 3 judges: DJ Khlad, Diddy&Meghan Trainor instead of 4 this time. It's b/c Charlie Walk was accused of Sexual Harrassment Allegation. ]]>👀🕺🦂
