SOUTHAMPTON/PORTSMOUTH SINGING CONTEST FOR TEENAGERS – 13-15 category

Isabelle Moulsdale – A very confident and powerful performance. Good image. Be careful with tuning at points though.

Casey Gale – Smooth velvet tone. Take care with all the notes - not just the high ones.

Rebecca Lacey – Well done on your original song, although the guitar was out of tune which affected the performance.

Beth Parvin – Need to work on getting more projection to the voice. Need to keep performing and practicing to become more confident.

Billy Tee – Nice smooth voice. Pop star looks! Not sure the song suited you - would have worked on making the song your own - perhaps speed it up a little.

Chelsea Lane – A confident and powerful vocal.

Alisha Ayles – Confident voice but don’t stand with legs crossed – you might fall over! Try and show a little more expression in your performance.

Courtney Buchanan – Good expression. Got the feeling she connected to the song. Thoughtful, interesting performance. Project the voice more. Nice sense of feeling and timing.

Sophie Peacock – Strong voice but needed more control. Maybe it was due to nerves. Try and put some performance into it early on.

Mia – Very nervous – keep performing to overcome nerves.

Rachel Matthams – Lovely tone and a well interpreted acoustic version - made it her own. Confident performance.

Chloe – Pretty voice.

Kelsey – Natural performer.

Lacey – You gave it your all. Be careful you don’t lose tuning and pitch.

Ria – Good song. Have confidence, believe in yourself and perform it more!

Abi Marchant – Sweet voice. Good confidence playing guitar. Nice song! Try projecting more.

Carew – Nice tone. Some strong elements. Maybe would have chosen a different song.
