Aspiring singers, get ready to audition April 8 in Chicago for another TV singing competition.
ABC is getting into the singing competition business with "Rising Star," the first contest in which the audience has the final say in real-time voting.
Says ABC: "The show follows a group of aspiring singers as they perform live. During the performances, viewers vote in real time via an App to determine if the singer will advance in the competition. If the voting reaches a certain threshold, the performer moves on. In addition, the performer can see how the voting is going throughout the performance, so the feedback is immediate and dramatic."
