How Does Rising Star Work? (VIDEO)

Truth rating: 10

By Daniel Gates



“Rising Star” is the new singing competition show featuring Kesha, Ludacris, Brad Paisley and Josh Groban.

It actually is different from other talent series.

The big twist is that everything is LIVE — home viewers will instantly advance the contestants they like via voting through an app.

No results show, no waiting, no judges making the decisions.

Oh, and there’s a giant wall that features the faces of viewers and physically moves up and down depending on whether a singer gets enough votes.


Let the show’s celebrity panelists explain it to you in the trailer below!

The show debuts on June 22.
