NEWCASTLE SINGING CONTEST FOR TEENAGERS – 13-15 category

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.

NEWCASTLE SINGING CONTEST FOR TEENAGERS – 13-15 category

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.
