Saskia Robbins – Great idea to do a mash up but you must ensure they aren’t just put together, their needs to be a distinctive transition between the songs. Vocally you have a super tone but look to vary this to be more engaging, click here for more tips on adding more singing dynamics.
Kieran Marsh – Lots of potential here just try and add a bit more sensitivity in the song - let it breathe and let the emotion of the song sit with the performance.Click here for tips on singing with facial expressions. Varying the dynamics would really help the performance and for the chorus to stand out even more. Click here for more tips on adding more singing dynamics.
Lara Goodwin –The song suited your vocal nicely and you were comfortable with the song but you also didn’t really climb into the song and show us its real potential. It would have been good to have seen a bit more commitment and passion.
Laurie Yarde – Not sure this song suited your vocal as your vocals felt under strain throughout. You need to look to select songs that bring out the sweeter tone in your vocal. Click here for the importance of song choice. Watch your mic control, get that microphone as close to your mouth as possible for maximum volume and so you don’t lose projection. Your vocals are very pure and sincere.
Olivia Press – You have a lovely tone! Look to make a good first impression and look to develop your projection to show your vocal off at it’s very best. Click here for tips on vocal projection. Look to perform as much as you can to build your confidence, as you seemed nervous on stage. Click here for more tips on building stage confidence as a singer. Vocally watch you pitch, especially when you go through the gears to get power at the top notes. Your passion is admirable!
Dion Sheppard – You have a polished vocal to a massive theatre number. Commit even more to the expression in the song – click here for singing with facial expressions. The backing vocals in the song did detract from your vocal as they were too loud in the mix. Try not to let your nerves affect your vocals and breathing technique. Try to minimise your nerves as much as possible, this will better your performance. Click here for tips on building stage confidence as a singer.
