Movies & TV

Move over, American Idol and The Voice. ABC is prepping a new singing competition series, called Rising Star, this summer with Ludacris, Kesha and Brad Paisley on-board as judges, THR reports.

Hosted by Josh Groban, the show will be based on Israel’s format from Dick Clark Productions and Keshet partnership Keshet DCP. This marks ABC’s second stab at a singing show following the 2012 one-off, Duets.

The slow, slated to tape in Los Angeles and air live on the east coast, will include real-time voting from viewers. Rising Star will hit small screens on June 22.
