Everything changes when the Rising Star series premiere airs SUNDAY JUNE 22 9|8c on ABC. Rising Star completely reinvents the traditional singing competition as — for the first time ever — the audience has the final say in real time. The show follows a group of aspiring singers as they audition in live performances.
During the performances, viewers vote via an App in real time to determine if the singer will advance in the competition. If the voting reaches a certain threshold, the performer moves on, and the performer can see how the voting is going during the performance, so the feedback is immediate and dramatic.
