Check out more feedback from the Bristol’s Got Talent and Bristol Singers Wanted here.

Amy Wilson-Young – Lovely tone but you are a long way from the mic and this altered your vocal projection, click here for advice on voice projection. Also watch your timing as you were a bit eager at times. Glad you took the mic off the stand and used the stage, click here for more on stage performance tips. A big song choosing Whitney and came across slightly nervous. A very nice look/image.

Bristol Talent Competition – Industry Judges Feedback

Eva McKenzie – Mic control let you down, click here for more on microphone techniques for singers. This meant the levels were very inconsistent. A great guitar technique! A few minor issues with the vocals, but nothing a good vocal coach can’t help you with, click here for the importance of vocal training.

Celyn – Great to see you take the mic off the stand for a very committed performance.  Always keep going even if you forget the words! Otherwise you just highlight the mistake and we wouldn’t have noticed. Just take care not to get too shouty and keep vocal control. A strong vocal with extra coaching you could be very good, click here for the importance of vocal training.

Daisy Mae – Good projection and vocal control. Your guitar work was solid, but keeps practising to refine it even more, click here for tips on guitar practise routine. You’ve got a lovely voice! Good song, it just needed a little more structure, click here for pop song structure.

Paige Mullin – Performing a character does mean we don’t see you being original. Watch your mic control as that would have meant better projection, click here for more on microphone techniques for singers. Lovely vocals and going forward you need to add more emotion and expression. You are a star in the making, so keep going within the musical theatre world. 

Bristol Talent Competition – TeenStar Feedback

Oakley Orchard – It’s a song that is performed a lot but it was nice to see a boy tackle it for a change, click here for advice on good audition songs. Very risky performing a song more commonly known for females but it paid off. Liked the expression you gave the track, don’t be frightened to commit even more to the performance. You seemed at home on the stage and it came across well. 

Annalise – Potential is there but need to consider song choice, click here for more on good audition songs. Control is so important to a performance, whether it be microphone control or breath control. It’s a dance number so you need to give the movement the track dictates, click here for stage performance tips. If you forget the words always continue with the performance, otherwise you just highlight the error.

Hannah – Nice tone to your vocals, consider adding more vocal dynamics to the performance, click here for more on music dynamics. Going forward commit more to the emotion within the song, click here for tips on how to sing with emotion. Great stage presence, so well done. Make sure there’s a synergy between the song and your image!

Carmen Marie – Good song choice, modern and current. Performance wise, you used the stage well but give the performance more purpose. Performance could also develop if you worked on facial expression to convey the emotion in the song, click here for tips on facial expressions and gestures whilst singing. Giving your breathing more attention would help your performance, click here for breathing exercises for singing.
