Sacha – Hard song to perform but you nailed it. Individual performance, quality control and powerful inflection. As for stage performance, keep doing what you do, click here for stage performance tips. It’s a difficult song to sing, so well done for being brave with your choice.

Eve Pitt – You remind me of Lucy Spraggan. Loved the original song and the story of it. Very unique! More expression would help an already great performance, click here for tips on facial expression and hand gestures whilst singing

Iona – Sweet voice and tone. Try to engage with the song and it’ll show more in your performance, something that we didn’t see a lot of, click here for stage performance tips

Birmingham Talent Show – TeenStar 2015

Rory Naylor – Good stage presence and confidence! Great image and vocal is very rich. You do need to work on your image a little though, there should be a synergy between your performance and your song choice, click here for music synergy and image. Watch your mic control as it can affect the quality of your performance, click here for microphone techniques for singers. You’ve got such a pleasant personality on stage – plenty of charisma.

Florence Harvey – With a stripped back vocal, try and increase the story selling side of things. Nice voice but remember to make use of the stage more, click here for stage performance tips. A strong look which is nice to see. Try to connect more with the audience, click here for tips on engaging the audience

Harmonize – There was a strong chemistry between you two which was nice to see. The original song was good, had a nice topic! With some development this act could work really well together and go places. Some nice harmonies in there! Try breaking up the strumming pattern to add dynamics to your performance.

Abbey – Completed captivated in this performance, you’ve got the star quality! Lovely textured vocals. You’ve got a good stage presence; it looked like you were really into the song. Elegant styling of the performance and confident entrance. Excellent dynamics and expression. Great image, well done!

Georgina Bishop – Nice vocal tone and range, would have liked to see you work the stage a bit more, click here for stage performance tips. You’ve got a really powerful voice! 

Katie Parkes – Lovely song choice, although be careful which songs to choose, Adele has an incredible voice so it can be difficult to make the song your own. Some tuning and pitching issues, nothing a good vocal coach can’t help you with, click here for the importance of vocal training. Lovely clear vocals but you looked bored up there, try to bring more facial expression to the performance, click here for facial expression and hand gestures whilst singing

Aiyana – Great image, loads of passion and great vocals. A star in the making. Strong styling but a few issues with phrasing and singing, click here for improving singing diction. Amazing voice and range! 

Regional Final Feedback for Birmingham Talent Show

Florentia – Lovely recording vocals. Good image. Young Alicia Keys! Loved the dynamics in your performance. It’s a shame you had a music stand in the way, it distracted slightly from the performance, click here for performing with musical keyboards. Looked very nervous but you warmed into the confidence.

Chloe Milward – Good image – beautiful dress! Love pure tones but your breathing is preventing you from accessing your full tonal range, click here for breathing exercises for singing. You need to bring more confidence to your performance, click here for how to sing with confidence. Hard song but sung so beautifully. 

Aimee Delaney – Beautiful image. Wrong song choice for your voice type and image, click here for good audition songs. Lovely soft voice. Would have liked to have seen you use more of the stage, click here for stage performance tips

Taylor-G – Nice guitar work and a good mashup. Need to work on your image, click here for music synergy and image. You’re a talented young man, but remember to keep engaging with the audience and bring in more performance, stage performance tips.

Linda Jerate – Nice jacket! Not the best song choice, but you did it justice, click here for good audition songs. It fell a little flat in some places, nothing a good vocal coach can’t help you with, click here for the importance of vocal training

Ellie Whitehouse – The acappella start was a nice touch. Good passion in your singing! You need to develop your voice further to improve; working on your breathing and placement will help. This is nothing a good vocal coach can’t assist with you, click here for the importance of importance of vocal training

Maria Csoka – Great young look, good for the camera. Remain engaged with the audience as much as possible as closing your eyes closes off the connection, click here for  stage performance tips. You made a good use of the stage! Good image, although not sure about the trainers. 

Kerri O’Kane – Strong statement and lovely styling! You performed well and made good use of the stage. Unfortunately you were out of key slightly and therefore your performance was affected. The song choice wasn’t good, unfortunately with singers such as Sam Smith it’s difficult to compete.

Darshae – Great image. Nice accompaniment with those instruments! Good use of the stage! You could feel the emotion in the song! That was a nice performance. You’ve got plenty of potential here! Good look!

Birmingham Talent Show – Mid-Teen Regional Final Feedback

Brease Woolley – Nice and passionate performance – very listenable! You have a voice suitable for musical theatre. Very good vocals! Well done.

Holly May Wright – Plenty of energy – big voice! Good mash up! Great moves, good all round performer! Would love to see more! You’ve really improved since we last saw you. Your image suits your performance really nicely. Nice to see some getting the crowd going which can be very difficult to do!

Tasha Jerawan – Beautiful original song. Great image. Your song matched your vocals perfectly, amazing! Really talented young lady! That’s a really natural performance. Would love to hear more of your songs!

Lydia – Very sparkly and vibrant! Great original song. Try to use more of the stage, click here for stage performance tips. One to watch! Good energy in this performance! 

Charlotte Hurley – Lovely performance! Very hard song to sing and you did a really nice job! Remember to support those bigger phrases! You look lovely, that dress is beautiful. Some parts of the song were a little nasally, this is something a vocal coach can help you with, click here for the importance of vocal training.

Stephanie Addison – Good styling but it was an odd choice of sing to sing in such a structured way, click here for good audition songs. Beautiful girl with such a sweet voice!

Alesi Summer – Wow! Great song and delivered with such passion. Nice audience interaction which can often be difficult to do! You’re a really good performer. What an improvement! You’ve matured so much in the last year, vocally so much stronger and brilliant stage presence!
