Just as they were, at the very first minute of the very first episode, viewers continue to play an integral role in every decision made on the show throughout the entire season.


Rising Star’s record-breaking debut on Keshet Channel 2 – and the overwhelming response and participationfrom viewers – has set a new bar for the future of talent shows. The series finale achieved a remarkable 40.3% rating and 58% share.
