Brad Paisley Judging Summer Reality Show
Brad Paisley Judging Summer Reality Show

It’s official, Brad Paisley has signed on to be a judge for the new ABC reality show, Rising Star.  Joining him as a judge will be Kesha and Ludacris.  Here’s how the show will work…contestants will perform in front of a giant video wall and viewers will be voting at that time.  Once the performance is over the results will pop up on the video wall and if the score is high enough, the video wall will raise, giving the contestant a glimpse of the studio audience.  Just like American Idol, the judges will be offering feedback.  Rising Star will be hosted by Josh Grobin and will premiere June 22.
