Rising Star India 2017: The Reality Show With A Difference
These days one can find various platforms for showcasing one’s talents. Rising Star India that will be aired on Colors TV towards the beginning of 2017 is one such platform that provides budding singers the exceptional opportunity to exhibit their talent in singing and win the hearts of the people through their melodious voice. Based on the original format of Hakochav Haba owned by Keshet Broadcasting International Ltd, Rising Star is organised by Viacom 18 Media Pvt Ltd.
What is Rising Star all about?
In this reality show anyone who can impress people by their vocal cords can participate regardless of their background, personality, occupation e.t.c. However children below six years of age cannot participate. ‘Breathless’ singer Shankar Mahadevan will be the Judge and the Mentor of the show. He will be guiding and judging the participants so that they can enrich and improve their skills.
How is this show different from other reality shows?
This show has a very unique format where only few performers will get the chance of performing live. In this way the performers will be judged based solely on their singing ability and not by their looks, personality and language spoken by them or the region they come from. Rising Star breaks all stereotypes of the reality shoes that were previously aired on television. Here the participants will remain hidden behind a wall which will not be removed till their votes reach 70%. Thus the viewers have to vote based on the audio. Another important aspect of the show is that the viewers will be directly involved in deciding the fate of the participants. Produced by Optimystix Entertainment, this reality show has an instant and live format and provides the viewers the opportunity to get involved with the progress of the show via an application.
