Rising Star is a trailblazing, interactive talent format that hails a new era in home entertainment. Its launch marks the dawn of real-time viewer voting via an innovative free app which is fully integrated into the show.
Audiences decide who advances via the voting app, while their individual pictures appear on the large screen facing the contestant. The studio judges vote simultaneously by hitting their own buttons. The tension mounts as the performer approaches the designated voting percentage – if they hit the mark, the screen rises in a dramatic climax and a new star is revealed.
The viewers continue to play an integral role in every decision made throughout the entire season, as it builds to a finale that richly rewards their emotional investment.
