The smallest group yet of Republican primary contenders will take the stage Thursday night in Detroit.

Four candidates—Donald Trump, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, and John Kasich—will face off in a Republican debate at 9 p.m. EST. Viewers can watch the debate on the Fox News Channel or live-stream it online.

Though Ben Carson has not officially dropped out of the race yet, he announced on Wednesday that he saw no “path forward” and would not participate in Thursday’s debate.

The debate will mark the first time that Trump and Fox News host Megyn Kelly meet since their face-off in August, when Kelly pressed Trump about statements he’s made denigrating women. Trump responded to the line of questioning by waging a social media blitz against the host in the weeks following—tweeting that Kelly was “off her game” and retweeting supporters calling her a “bimbo”—and declining to attend the Fox News debate in January.

In a recent interview with Reuters, Kelly said that she had no intention to bring up her history with the candidate during the debate. “Frankly, I have been ready for seven months to move beyond what happened after that August debate,” Kelly said. “I feel like it’s getting boring. Trump has bigger things to worry about, and so do I.”

She will be joined in moderating the debate by Fox News’ Bret Baier and Chris Wallace.
