SHEFFIELD SINGING CONTEST FOR TEENAGERS – 13-15 category

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.

Ebony – Aim for more assured speed control. Clear ability evident – now work on confidence when performing.

Lucia – Very nervous – this affected your performance today. Stick at it….

Kimberly – Better luck next time..!

SHEFFIELD SINGING CONTEST FOR TEENAGERS – 13-15 category

Felicity - Something there, but did not ignite….

Grace – Lovely voice. Make sure you give consideration to image to suit the style.

Megan – Individual performer. Not sure about the song choice though….would like to see again after some further work.

Ellena - Strong voice. Liked it - individual and colourful. Well done.

Laura – Well known song choice – interesting interpretation in some phrasing. Good dynamic shape with rhythmic groupings too….

Jennifer – Small technical slips with guitar continuity needed adjustment. Nice voice.

India – Not convinced about intonation in places.  Some promise here, but further work required.

Aylsha – Nervous today. Aim for greater engagement also.

Grant - Give closer attention to the accompaniment. Unamplified electric guitar not strong enough. Liked the voice.

Rumbi – Strong vocal there. Like the range and expression.

Rosie – Try to be ready with your equipment initially, but you warmed into a fairly good performance. A little fast.

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

Natalie – Strong and confident in projection. Well done.

Ope – Mostly secure technically and watch breathing. Rap not always clear. Something there though – you did not nail it today but happy to take a risk here…

Hazel – Try to present you work with confidence, even with a cold!

SHEFFIELD SINGING CONTEST FOR TEENAGERS – 13-15 category

Tilly – There is a voice there, but song choice acapella took a while to get going.  Aim for more engagement also.

Lilly – Projection and composure. Attention to image also suited the style.

Bethany - Interesting interperetation. This was a considered piece.

Simone – You warmed into this. Smooth and sultry. Fairly confident today.

Emily – Needs more confidence. Stalled on this occasion but see you next time…keep going!

Chloe – Nerves affected performance. Just a little tentative.

Megan – Liked the voice, and performance was generally confident.

Samantha - Long introduction in a short audition. Lovely voice though and interesting in delivery. Quite an emotional presentation.  Watch intonation.

Connor – Give thought to image.  Need to develop experience and presence, but good promise…
