The Singing Rabbis take Israel

Two Breslev chassidim who normally busk (work as street performers in tourist areas) in Jerusalem have become the talk of the country via Israel’s new singing talent show “Rising Star”.

What makes this new show interesting and unique is, the home audience directly participates real time by downloading the show app for the iPhone/Android phone and voting on the performance while it’s happening. 

The performance happens behind a screen, and if it breaks 70% LIKE during the performance, the screen is removed and the contestant stays in (if not, the screen stays down and they’re out).  While performing, the performers see (on their side of the screen) the profile pic of people voting YES for them.  They’re literally playing to the virtual audience.

Here’s the singing rabbis… direct link
