Because it is our life's duty to inform you when someone from the Tampa Bay area is competing on a reality show, we must tell you that local teen Macy Kate will compete Sunday on ABC's singing competition Rising Star.

The 16-year-old from St. Petersburg was pulled from the audience to sing during the premiere of the ABC show earlier this summer, and now she'll be back again to perform with Gabrielle Nicole as part of the Duels portion of the competition.

You'd be forgiven for not knowing the show, hosted by Josh Groban and featuring Brad Paisley, Kesha and Ludacris as musical experts. Rising Star utilizes an app voting system that ABC hoped would turn it into the Next Big Thing; instead, it's just sort of fizzled. Oh, Groban, your talents are being seriously wasted.

Here's a video of Macy Kate competing earlier in the season:
