Fox’s new reality singing competition The Four: Battle for Stardom debuted with plenty of drama on Thursday night (Jan. 4) as two of the four chosen ones were replaced by the end of the two-hour debut thanks to the show’s unique battle style format. We also got a couple of new potentially viral catchphrases from judge Diddy, a look at music exec Charlie Walk’s attempt to be the Yankee Simon Cowell and plenty of glimpses of DJ Khaled shouting “this is what I’m here for!”
And while the ratings aren’t in yet, The Four has already succeeded in one very crucial category: meme-ishness. From Twitter props for the show from the likes of French Montana, Kevin Jonas, Maria Menounos and Logic to a slew of hilarious gif-filled reactions from fans, The Four seems to have struck a chord from jump.
Check out some of the best reactions to the show.

“We have different tastes as far as Hip Hop. There’s a lot of old people in offices in the music industry not understanding what it is. Originality is KEY… ” – @Diddy #TheFour pic.twitter.com/TIRzG2Jy0U
