Anjeli Diack – Nicely sung. Look to improve your vocals by projecting more.
Double Trouble – As a vocal group it’s essential you work on building harmonies into your song. Need to practice a lot more too as you forgot the words on occasions.
Isabelle Parsons – Good eye contact. A little powerhouse!
Samuel Jones – Samuel has a nice tone but need to work on projecting more and remember to take your hands out of your pockets.
Lucy Simmonds – At only 7 one of the youngest we’ve seen. Was very nervous but can see the potential.
Kaytee – Need to try and relax more as you were very stiff.
Katie Tyler – Again would say work on the projection and song choice, the song was too big and demanding for you at this stage.
Charlie May – Confident and already thinking about image. Just watch your tuning on occasions.
Devin Jade – Great to see you playing as well as singing but need to work hard at being confident at performing and giving eye contact as at the moment you are looking down at your guitar too much.
Cerys Willis – Vocally one of the strongest today. Try and focus now on adding more of a performance with more intensity of engaging with your audience.
Victoria Liszka – Lovely tone to your voice. I’d love to hear you sing something more contemporary - perhaps sticking to the folky essence of the song you have done today.
Hameem Kahn - Need to slow down a bit as it came across too rushed.
Beth Turner – A confident and committed performance. Just take care with the transitions between notes they can become sometimes too static rather than smooth.
Megan Eneas - Try and pick a less popular song otherwise of course you run the risk of other people doing the same song and also being compared to the original singer which is hard to compete with. Lots of power. Be careful with tuning in parts.
Lucy Summers – Well sung. Would like to hear you sing something more contemporary.
Lauren Barker – Try and engage more with your audience.
Denielle Pimlott – Well sung - just watch your timing at some points.
Rosie-Mae Driscoll – Good song choice. Perhaps would have sped it up a little to help with the flow.
Jade Moore – Nice vocal. Need to give more expression to your performance.
Charlotte Neal – Nice tone to a lovely song choice.
Laura Keane – Nice rasp to your vocal.
Freya Huntingdon – A very nervy start. Doing more performances will give you greater confidence.
Merci – Good to see the performance in the audition. Possibly work with a vocal coach on the song as it was too big for you at times and you struggled to keep up with the notes.
All successful acts from the 2013 TeenStar auditions will be performing at the TeenStar 2013 Regional Finals at Ferneham Hall on Sunday 14th April.
Come along to the Regional Finals to see the best unsigned talent in Southampton/Portsmouth!
