Josh Groban hates waiting — which, perhaps, makes him the perfect host for ABC’s new reality singing competition, Rising Star (Sunday, June 22, 9/8c).
In the network’s latest promo, Groban and judges Ludacris, Kesha and Brad Paisley explain what they think sets their show apart from its competitors: No results show, immediate advancement or elimination based on live viewer voting through a Rising Star app, and power completely in the hands of fans (not the celebrity panel).
What’s more, images of selected voters will be projected onto a giant wall that will separate contestants from success or failure: “Yes” votes will raise the wall (and lead to the next round); “no” votes will keep the wall in place (and lead to elimination).
