The live talent show for the first time incorporates real-time voting by viewers via an App that is fully integrated into the show. Unlike traditional talent competition series that start off with taped auditions, “Rising Star” is live from the very beginning, with contestants auditioning with live performances. In every round, viewers vote via the showâ€™s App in real time during the performance, along with the judges, to determine if the singer will advance, which happens if he/she reaches a voting threshold, 70% in Israel. In a twist, the performer is separated from the studio audience and the judges by a translucent floor-to-ceiling LED screen where images of voters at home, taken from their Facebook pages, appear live facing the singer who can see how fast the vote tally is growing during the performance for an immediate feedback, making result shows feel â€œantiquated,â€ as a person close to Rising Star put it.
