Rising Star completely reinvents the traditional singing competition as—for the first time ever—the audience has the final say in real time. During the performances, viewers vote via an App to determine if the singer will advance in the competition. If the voting reaches a certain threshold, the performer moves on.
Until now, it was just a RUMOR that we would get to see Brad Paisley at the judges table. That rumor has been confirmed. The judges for Rising Star will be Brad Paisley, Kesha, Ludacris and the host will be Josh Groban.
Rising Star will debut on ABC on June 22nd at 8pm.
