(WJLA) - Here's your chance to literally be the judge for America's next "Rising Star," only on ABC.

With the free app - which you can download in the App Store by searching "Rising Star" - you can vote in real-time and decide if a performer moves on in the competition, or is cut on the spot.

ABC7's "Good Morning Washington" team interviewed superstar international singer-songwriter Josh Groban on Wednesday. Groban will serve as the show's host. Celebrity judges will be Kesha, Ludacris and country superstar Brad Paisley.

Groban said "Rising Star" is unlike any other talent competition on TV because the app allows each person to vote only once, keeping the competition fair and balanced - and the real-time feature makes for game-changing TV, as stars stand in front of a three-story-tall wall with real-time photos of audience members casting their votes as they sing.

Check out why else Groban thinks the show is going to be an instant hit and tell us - will you watch?

'Rising Star' premieres on ABC this Sunday, June 22 at 9 p.m.
