James Graham was shockingly eliminated on the July 20 edition of “The Four: Battle For Stardom.”

He nonetheless reclaimed his seat — and earned another chance at the grand prize — during last week’s comeback episode.

He made the most of his second chance; James Graham won season two of FOX’s music competition series.

Thursday’s two-hour season finale featured three rounds of competition. The first round asked the finalists — Graham, Leah Jenea, Whitney Reign, and Sharaya J — to perform for the live crowd. The top vote-getter earned the right to choose her challenger for the next round.

Sharaya J won, and opted to battle Reign. Judges Meghan Trainor, DJ Khaled and Diddy named Sharaya J the winner, thrusting her into the night’s final round.

Graham meanwhile defeated Jenea, earning the right to battle Sharaya J for the grand prize.

Graham’s rendition of “Fix You” was rousing enough for victory. The judges selected him as the winner of the music competition series.

Graham wins a recording contract, future support from the iHeartRadio “On The Verge” program, and career mentorship from the expert judges.
