TORONTO, June 17, 2014 /CNW/ - With just days to go until the premiere of the 
buzzed-about singing competition series RISING STAR, Canadian viewers can now 
download the free app that will serve not only as their judging tool for the 
revolutionary new interactive series, but also their opportunity to appear 
live on TV across North America. Reinventing the traditional singing 
competition, RISING STAR gives viewers the chance to become a home judge, and 
- for the first time ever - see photos of themselves and their vote count in 
real time on their TVs. Canadian viewers can visit CTV.ca/RisingStar to 
download the free RISING STAR app, available for IOS and Android users. RISING 
STAR airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT beginning June 22 on CTV, and is also 
available live and on demand on CTV.ca and the CTV GO app. 
In RISING STAR, only a wall of viewer faces separates each artist from their 
dream, and only viewer votes can raise it. By voting through the app, viewers 
will decide the fate of each singer before their performance is over in real 
time. Click here to watch a preview of RISING STAR.
