Rising Star

Rising Star is an interactive talent format: it includes real-time voting by viewers via an free app which is fully integrated into the show. Home audiences decide who advances via the voting app, while their individual pictures appear on the large screen facing the contestant and judges vote simultaneously by hitting their buttons in the studio. When the performer reaches the designated voting percentage the screen rises and the new star is revealed. Just as they were, at the very first minute of the very first episode, viewers continue to play an integral role in every decision made on the show throughout the entire season.
