 ITV’s new talent show Rising Star heads for Leeds Open Mic in search of talent

“Rising Star is ITVs Brand New and exciting, live and interactive singing competition where the viewers at home are the judges...”

Report Andrew Sugden

Sadly the star has fallen and the moment is gone- ITV have lost over £1 million on singing show Rising Star - and axed it before it has begun. The show in other countries has flopped.

 ITV  said: “Rising Star is an innovative show and we have enjoyed working on the format with the team. However, as a commercial broadcaster, we always need to be as confident as possible about the potential ratings of any new programme format that we have acquired and we have therefore taken the decision not to proceed with plans to broadcast the series on ITV."
