How To Vote On Rising Star Music Competition

How To Vote On Rising Star Music Competition

“Rising Star” completely reinvents the traditional singing competition as–for the first time ever–the audience has the final say in real time. The show follows a group of aspiring singers as they audition in live performances. During the performances, viewers vote via an App in real time to determine if the singer will advance in the competition. If the voting reaches a certain threshold, the performer moves on, and the performer can see how the voting is going during the performance, so the feedback is immediate and dramatic.

Rising Star Voting App

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. The App is essential to participate in the voting process, but it’s totally FREE and easy to use. Just register with your Facebook or Twitter account, and you’re ready to go. Before each performance, you’ll be asked to 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. You’ll see the results of the vote in REAL TIME on television – even if you are on the West Coast. In just seconds, your votes determine whether the wall rises, whether a contestant moves on or goes home, or if you’re on the West Coast, whether a lucky contestant gets a second chance. And IF you give ABC permission through the app, you might also see your Facebook or Twitter profile picture on the Rising Star wall.


Internationally acclaimed singer, songwriter Josh Groban will host, and country music superstar Brad Paisley, music sensation Kesha and hip hop artist and actor Ludacris comprise the expert panel.

The series airs over 10 weeks. The first 3 weeks—“Qualifiers”– showcase approximately 30 acts, and these episodes will be 2 hours each. Beginning July 13, the series is one hour weekly. The next phases of competition are the duels—where acts compete one-on-one. Those who survive return for the Quarterfinal and perhaps Semifinal rounds, as the field continues to narrow until the night of the Finals, when just 1 of the remaining acts will be named the “Rising Star” winner.
