Angels in Chaos – Nice blending and harmony. Well done guys. (Like the name)
Saskia – Aim for a greater sense of performance. Nice voice.
Lilly - Try to present your work with more assurance. Not all pitches exact.
Hayley Collins – Mature delivery. Some energy here but watch pace.
Lauren Bennett – Not sure about song choice but should be enough to go through
Leony Hilton - Nice rhythmic control. Smooth voice. Suited the image too…
Tilly Jackson - Nice voice, but for me lost a little momentum with interpretation.
Stephany Pickering - Guitar work affected the delivery just slightly. Perhaps concentrate on vocals? Use backing material?
Esmi - Slipped initially but recovered – good performance.
Marlie – Great voice and delivery acapella.
Gracious - Liked the potential of the voice, but needs to be presented with greater confidence. Try to get some more experience.

Chloe and Libby – try to engage with the audience guys. Clearly able but room for more assurance. Harmonies well thought out.
