India is overboard with invincible and talented dancers, singers & actors and India TV channels also don’t forget to recognize the talent of such people. Every year, Indian TV channels host many reality TV shows to provide a platform for new budding Indian talents.
With the same motto, Colors TV started a singing reality show with the twist of live voting. In 2017, Colors TV launched Rising Star’s first season and it was a big success.
In 2018, Colors TV team is back with another season of Rising Star- 2. The season started on January 20, 2018.
Voting Process (Online Poll/Live Voting)
Rising Star is the only singing reality show as, for the first time, the Indian audiences will be able to vote LIVE for their favorite contestants.
Here’s the whole explanation of the Live Voting:
During each performance, the audiences watching at home would be able to decide in real time whether or not a contestant should be sent through to the next round by using a mobile voting app: Voot App.
When the performance begins, the voting process also starts. Registered voters have the option of voting only as a ‘Yes’ or ‘No’. Non-voters are also considered “No” votes. If an expert/judge vote ‘Yes’, 5% more is added to the percentage count of the contestant. The contestants also see random photos of voters in their favour. Faces of judges/panellists voting “Yes” is also be shown in larger frames.
Once the contestant reaches 80% of ‘Yes’ votes, the wall is raised and the contestant goes to the next round of the competition.
