'Rising Star' Ratings Fail to Impress for ABC

'Rising Star' Ratings Fail to Impress for ABC

Kesha hits the stage for the series premiere of Rising Star on Sunday evening (June 22) in Los Angeles.

The 27-year-old singer was joined for the program by fellow judges Ludacris and Brad Paisley, as well as host Josh Groban.

The series premiere unfortunately did not get great ratings for ABC and the show only pulled in about 5 million viewers. While it lost the time slot ratings war to America’s Got Talent, Rising Star did have a huge social presence and attracted 129,071 tweets, way more than any other show that evening, according to Variety.

FYI: Kesha is wearing a vintage dress.
