It’s official! Brad Paisley has joined the cast of ABC’s new reality singing competition, “Rising Star.”
The country superstar will act as a judge alongside pop star Kesha and rapper Ludacris. Singer/Songwriter Josh Groban is set to host the show.
“Rising Star,” which is based on the Israeli show of the same name, is a live talent competition that rallies viewers to vote in real time by using an app. The contestants are separated from the judges and the studio audience by a see-through LED screen where images of fans voting at home appear live. Each contestant can see the votes coming in throughout the performance. Then, if they reach a certain number of votes, the screen rises and the singer can see the judges and the live studio audience.
“Rising Star” premieres Sunday, June 22 on ABC.
