Erin Whitaker – There is a lovely tone to your voice and you sing with clear diction. This was a beautiful song choice and you have good control of your breathing. Some of the notes were a little low and you should now concentrate on adding dynamics to your performance. Don’t be frightened to perform like you are on stage but an overall strong audition.

Hannah Norman – This song suited your voice and there was lots of emotion conveyed when you sang. We liked your unique style and nice vocal flicks which made it your own. You would potentially have benefited from singing in a slightly higher key and make sure you take care to give attention to all the lyrics so keep your focus throughout. Watch your breathing and timing so you don’t run out of air. Click here for breathing exercises for singing.
Carmen Small – You had great tuning and good dynamics. There was lovely character in your vocal and good projection. Now concentrate on connecting to the song and building your stage presence. Click here for tips on facial expressions and gestures while singing.
Milly Gibson – You have a nice tone and full bodied vocal sound. Your breathing control is good but please take care to engage with your audience - in particular eye contact. Click here for advice on engaging the audience when you are performing.
Bethan Marsden – You have a nice tone to your voice and connected well with the song but more expression is needed. Try and perform as you are very static and even though it’s an audition you need to perform like you are on stage. Click here for tips on facial expressions and gestures while singing.
Georgia Farthing – You have good stage presence and nice vibrato in areas. Potentially look to start on a lower key to get to those higher notes. Song choice is very important and try to pick one that both shows your vocal to its best and not a song choice that’s too popular click here for more on good audition songs.
Anastasia Helbeat – You have a unique tone and this was a good choice of song. Now work on committing more to the emotion in the song and try and remain focused on conveying the message in the song. A good vocal coach will be able to assist with your vocal projection to be even better. Click here for advice on choosing a vocal coach – how to pick the right vocal coach.
Naomi Jean – You have a strong voice and lovely tone, but the tuning was a bit out so try to work on that. Remember to not to ever stop mid flow of a performance just keep going. If you find yourself feeling anxious when audition, here are some tips for how to deal with nerves as a singer.
