rising star experts host Download the 'Rising Star' app before the ABC singing competition's premiereAre you ready for ABC’s sumer singing competition, “Rising Star”? Prepare yourself for the premiere of the live reality experiment by downloading the official app, which you can use for voting every Sunday night once the show debuts on June 22.

The show will let viewers judge the contestants — in addition to feedback from the panel of experts, which includes Kesha, Ludacris and Brad Paisley — in real time, voting on each singer’s performance via the app. A wall with the faces of app voters will separate each singer and their chance to move on, and the wall will raise when the contestant is voted through.

The singers will proceed in the competition based on those live results, eliminating the need for the typical singing competition results show.

Download the app here, and tune into the premiere on Sunday, June 22 at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
