KICKS OFF NATIONWIDE AUDITIONS ON SATURDAY, MARCH 29th

 

VISIT WWW.ABC.COM/RISINGSTAR FOR MORE INFORMATION

 

ABC’s innovative new series “Rising Star,” which opens the gate to a new era in reality competition, kicks off its nationwide search for talent on Saturday, March 29th. The U.S. series is helmed by executive producers Ken Warwick (“American Idol”) and Nicolle Yaron (“The Voice”). Aspiring singers are encouraged to visit www.abc.com/risingstar for more information on the audition process. Solo vocalists, duos and vocal groups (up to five members) can register to audition in person, online or nominate a friend/family member.

“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 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. 

“RISING STAR” HOPEFULS CAN AUDITION IN-PERSON IN THE FOLLOWING CITIES:

DALLAS: March 29th

ATLANTA: April 1st

CHICAGO:  April 8th

NASHVILLE:  April 11th

“Rising Star” is from Keshet DCP, the joint venture betweenKeshet International (KI), the global distribution and production arm of Keshet Media Group, and DC Media, the parent company of dick clark productions (dcp). The singing competition for ABC will mark the company’s first foray into the market since its formation in October.
