JOSH GROBAN TO HOST NEW ABC SINGING COMPETITION "RISING STAR"

ABC is throwing its hat in the reality singing competition ring with the new series Rising Star, and has announced what top musical talent will appear on the show when it debuts in June.  First up is Josh Groban, who'll host the competition.  Serving as experts -- no coaches or judges on this show -- are rapper and actor Ludacris, country superstar Brad Paisley, and pop star Kesha, who's been largely out of the spotlight since she finished a stint in rehab earlier this year for an eating disorder. Rising Star, which will premiere June 22, will follow a group of contestants as they perform live. What sets the competition apart from other shows is that the experts don't have a say in who goes, who stays and who moves on.  Instead, viewers will vote in real time via an app to determine which contestant will advance in the competition.  In fact, the performer will be able to witness the voting during his or her performance.
