Shauna Gallon – Excellent! Great big vocal and a brilliant image. A star in the making.
Heather Stevenson – Looks the part and a very sweet voice. Good stuff.
Jamie Doncaster – Nice version of A Team. Cool guy.
Emily Bennett – You need to have more confidence and express yourself a little more.
Amy Carter – Needs more confidence and belief! Good voice.
Olivia Irvan – Good potential to your voice, but you seemed a little nervous. Loosen up and enjoy yourself.
Ellie Russell – Nice tone to your voice, have some confidence to really bring out your talent.
Skye Costello – Great image and confidence, you need to warm up your voice though, a few blips today.
Olivia Lawson – Didn’t have the same intensity as before, but your potential is still clear to see.
Kate Hilton – Big song! Could you sing some of this in your chest voice? Nice sound, although a bit breathy.
Samantha Lavery – Really nice to hear you bring something original to the table. Be sure not to lose your diction.
Michael Rice – You have a good ear pitching and interpreting melody – tone it down a bit so you’re not chanting.
Lauren Nutting – Lovely to hear you singing confidently in head voice. Check breathing and give yourself a start note so you don’t struggle.
Sheridan Lambert – Check your posture – you are hunched over and it sounds a little forced at times. Check your pronunciation of some words.
Nixia – Nice harmonies, work on image and getting together more as a unit.
Elle Hodgson – There’s definitely potential, your voice needs a bit of training. More breathing work will help you vocally and calm your nerves.
Sabrina Cruickshank – Felt like you were rushing. Slow down. Also make sure you sing a song you know very well.
Brittany Farrow – Big voice and good song choice. Nicely performed. You look great too!
Jade Bailey Reeks – Great audition!
Jessica Armstrong – Nice song choice and sound to your voice. Maybe acknowledge audience more whilst performing.
Chloe Hill – Good performance but could tell you were nervous. Definitely potential here though.
Holly Bowron – Lovely tone to voice. Nice song choice and image too.
Josh Hughes – Could tell you were nervous but you have a lovely strong voice. Lots of potential, well done.
Lucy McMullen – Need to work on your diction, you aren’t finishing words off properly. A couple of tuning issues too. Good attempt though.
Sam Rea – Don’t rush your song, like the song choice though. Don’t over accentuate ends of phrases. Diction is good though.
All successful acts from the 2013 TeenStar auditions will be performing at the TeenStar 2013 Regional Finals at The Mill Volvo Tyne Theatre on Saturday 23rd March.
Come along to the Regional Finals to see the best unsigned talent in Newcastle!
