Keri Munro – I like your image. It’s cool! You have a great voice. Work on developing your guitar skills though, you don’t want them to be the thing that lets you down. Remember to connect with the audience; don’t just concentrate on the guitar! There’s something special about you!
Sacha Taylor – Amazing vocal! I could listen to you all day. Develop a connection with the audience, click here for engaging the audience. Great image and attitude! One to watch! Such an energetic song! I think you could have put more energy in the song but you have a great voice.
Cara McLeod – Interesting voice for an interesting song. Love your image and love how you performed the song. Lovely vocal and a good performance too! Not sure the song choice was right for you, was waiting for a country style song, click here for good audition songs.

Elle Crumlish – Good performance. Good to see dancers! Singing and dancing shows in the vocals but you didn’t let it affect you too much, good job! Just be careful not to let your dancing become more important than your singing!
Kristen MacBeth – The intro wasn’t the best but as it got going it was more interesting! I think you have a stronger voice than you showed us. Good laid back performance with smooth vocals. You’ve got a nice twang to your vocal. Work on your image so it suits your vocal, click here for music synergy and image.
Lauren Duddy – Nice image and nice soft vocal tone! Good range. Lovely emotional vocal delivery, but show us the emotion too, click here for how to sing with emotion. It was a very entertaining performance!
Jack Stark – You sound like George Ezra! Love the grittiness in your voice, it’s cool. Your image looks good. You didn’t seem the engage with the audience at all, and that’s so important!! Click here for engaging the audience.
Evelyn – Good use of the stage! So much energy in this performance which is good to see. It was a little pitchy in places, but nothing a good vocal coach can’t help you develop; click here for the importance of vocal training.
