The music talent show that lets the viewer reach for the stars in real time!
Rising Star completely reinvents the traditional singing competition. For the first time ever, the audience has the final say – in real time. The show follows a group of aspiring singers as they perform live. During the performances, viewers vote simultaneously via an app to determine if the singer will advance in the competition. If the voting reaches a certain threshold, the performer moves on. In addition, the performer can see how the voting is going throughout the performance, so the feedback is immediate and dramatic.
Josh Groban, the internationally acclaimed singer/ songwriter is the show’s host, while country music superstar Brad Paisley, pop music sensation Kesha and hip hop artist and actor Ludacris make up the studio panel of experts.
Rising Star is executive produced in the US by Ken Warwick (“American Idol”) and Nicolle Yaron (“The Voice”). The series is from Keshet DCP, the joint venture between Keshet International (KI), the global distribution and production arm of Keshet Media Group, and DC Media, the parent company of Dick Clark Productions (DCP).
