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.
Lucy – Fabulous, wanted to hear more.
Lacey – You gave it your all. Be careful you don’t lose tuning and pitch.
Georgina Hill – Sweet tone. Performance needed a bit more excitement.
Gabriella Gibbs – Great image. Felt a little disgruntled in places. Let the feeling flow through the song.
Keighley Smith – Work on the keys to be more fluent as the performance could have flowed better.
Maisey – Need to act this song up even more to make it funny.
Ria – Good song. Have confidence, believe in yourself and perform it more!
Abbie – Well done for writing your song. You need to project your voice 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.
Grace – Lovely smile. Happy performance – well projected.
Iona – Try to perform the song more and make it your own. It’s a song we hear a lot.
Kimberley – Try not to mimic Christina, We want to hear your own voice. You have a pretty voice.

Heather – I like your song choice – try to put more expression and performance into your performance.
Jessamie – Different – cough spoilt otherwise what was a great performance!
