Darling advances to the next level on "Rising Star," reaching 89 percent positive votes
Sarah Darling is becoming "America's Darling," earning 89 percent positive votes Sunday on ABC's new competition series, "Rising Star" - including the three experts, Ludacris, Kesha and Brad Paisley.
"Rising Star" premiered last night. Artists performed with the chance of raising the wall and moving to the next round of the competition.
Shining through the votes, Darling was one of six who raised the wall.
"What a rush," Darling said after her performance. "It's truly an amazing opportunity, and I'm so grateful for all the support. Now I can't wait to show the experts and America what I can do!"
Darling represented Country music as the only country contestant. Paisley had the first vote, thrusting his arm in the air with excitement, soon to be followed by Kesha and then Ludacris. After the wall raised, the experts raved about Darling as she held back tears of joy.
Next week, Darling will be able to relax as new contestants take the stage.
