    Rising Star (ABC)

    We got a little taste of this last night

    The host is Josh Groban, with the normal 3 judges... Ludacris, Keisha and Brad Paisley. To participate you need to download the Rising Star app (took about one minute). Log into the game and vote yes or no on each singer. The singer is behind a huge wall. If the singer gets 70% or more positive votes, then the wall will rise. Not sure what happens after that lol. Anyway seems interesting enough. I like the interactive part.

    How are folks on the West Coast able to vote?

    I love Josh Groban, but this is a pass for me.

    It sounds amusing, but I'm worn out on singing competition shows. In fact, I think I'm going to pass on AI and The Voice next season. I'm just over it for awhile.

    As usual, I, too, am wondering how the people on the west coast can vote while the show is live. If I weren't worn out from signing competitions, this one does feel different and I like the host.

    Yes the west coast votes too. I watched both east coast (taped) and west coast (live) to check it out. I was also able to vote then. Maybe it will be different groups of singers, or maybe they have to be able to get past both coasts versions to move on. Will be interesting to see how they do it.

    I downloaded the app and am looking forward to this. I love Brad Paisley. I know he is all into the latest tech stuff. I think it will be fun.

    I wonder if there will be surprises, like he didn't pass the east coast but he did the west? I don't get the voting but I will give it a chance.

    I decided in a weak moment to try and play, but the app won't load through itunes to my "original" iphone. I'll give it a look, though, and see if it catches my attention.

    And in case some aren't aware, you have to log in to Facebook or Twitter to vote. No thanks! I don't have Twitter, and I only use FB to send birthday greetings to friends. LOL
