American Idol. The Voice. Rising Star?
The latest reality show to bring a new twist to traditional singing competitions comes from Israel and incorporates real time voting results. Rising Star, which facilitates voting through a designated mobile app, allows fans to vote during the contestants’ performances, and showcases the results on stage in real time. Performers hoping to advance to the next round of the competition need to win the vote of more than 70% of the audience before their performance is over.
