Rising Star Results 2014 - Tonight's Premiere Show, Elimination Recap
Check out a recap of the results of the premiere of Rising Star, an ABC singing competition that debuted tonight (June 22, 2014).
The reality TV singing competition is crowded, but Rising Star hopes to make the audience more involved by allowing them to vote directly on who is eliminated from the show.
Since the audience is the ultimate judge, the show has dubbed Brad Paisley, Kesha and Ludacris as the experts who will give their opinions every week to the singers and give an up or down vote to each contestant.
Josh Groban is the host of the 2014 version of Rising Star and here is how the voting app works for viewers.
To vote for your favorite contestants, home judges (viewers) can download the Rising Star ABC app through the Apple App Store, Windows Market Place or the Google Play Store.
You have to have the App to vote and you'll need to register with your Facebook or Twitter account.
Before each performance voters are required check-in, and then when it’s time to vote, swipe BLUE (to the right) to vote YES or RED (to the left) to vote NO on the APP.
It's live, you’ll see the results of the vote in REAL TIME on television -- even if you are on the West Coast.
If you give us permission through the app, you might also see your Facebook or Twitter profile picture on the Rising Star wall.
It's unique, let's review what happened tonight.
