Season 1 | Episode 6 | “The Duels, Pt. 3″ | Aired July 27, 2014
Last week on Rising Star: Kesha revealed some sassy blue hair, and we witnessed the beginning of her epic love story with a big ball of yarn. Josh finally became confident enough to stop begging for sock approval. (Go Josh!) People sang. People cried. Some did both. Now let’s see what unfolds this week on Rising Star.
This week’s opening segment involves a ticking clock, extreme close-ups of contestant’s faces and a return of our old friend—the bare lightbulb, bringing the same level of sexiness it always does. This time around, the lightbulbs are swinging like pendulums while competitors either pantomime singing or stare at the camera all creepy-like, with this text wrapping around them: “The time for preparation is over. Tonight’s duels decide whose dreams come true and whose will be shattered.”
