Charlotte Jessica – With a bit of practise you could really go places! There is potential here but you suffered from nerves which led to tuning and timing issues on too regular a basis. A vocal coach will be able to help you with these elements, click here for the importance of vocal training

Georgia Okunblalode – You have a beautiful voice! Great expression and interpretation to a sensitive song.  A very strong performance, just being picky but careful to watch your mic control, click here for more on microphone techniques for singers. Great performance and you look good! We’d love to work on some tracks with you in the studio (Samurai Sound). 

London Singing Contest – Regional Final Feedback

Melody Lavender – Good image and confidence! Seemed like you suffered from a dodgy lead or connection to your guitar so well done for continuing but worth checking the connection and or lead. Good beat and vibe with the guitar. You delivered the song well; it was a good adaptation of ‘Latch.’ Nice choice of song, click here for good audition songs

MJ – An impressive start but you did lose your control where you tried to force it, so watch your vocal control, click here for vocal techniques for singers. It was a big a song and you can do it but it’s essential you warm up fully, breathe and focus on control to nail it. Nice confident performance. Work on finding your own individual style! Maybe more a more contemporary song for the next round! You’ve got star quality!

Jahna Lucero – Good control and use of the stage for a really enjoyable performance, click here for info on music dynamics which will help you develop if you can introduce a little more. Liked the rap breakdown great work! Cool image! Great range. Love that you incorporate the rap in to make the song a bit different.

Jasmin Buckley – Watch that mic control and vocal control as it was a good song choice and you had good presence, click here advice on microphone techniques for singers. Performance wise take the mic off the stand and work that stage, click here for stage performance tips. Make sure you express your personality on stage! 

Indigo – Liked you used the stage but commit more emotionally to the song so we can connect to you and the song, how to sing with emotion. Like that you changed it up to make it your own but watch the control, click here for on how to do music covers. Poor presentation at the end just walking off, remember perform throughout and stay professional.

London Singing Contest – Mid-Teens Regional Final

Jasmina – You have a very powerful vocal and your control is good. Better mic control would help the projection come across even better, click here for more on microphone techniques for singers. Performance wise come to the front of the stage and don’t be frightened to commit even more. Great expression whilst singing! 

Shanique Spencer – Started well making a good impact but it tailed off a little, click here for more on music dynamics to keep the tone, projection varied and more interesting throughout. Take care with your control as you have the ability! Lovely song choice. Your image suited your style of vocal very well. 

Sophie Nash – You have a lovely tone, but it was a very static performance both in terms of positioning on stage but in presence and facially. Click here for stage performance tipsfacial expressions and hand gestures whilst singing. I'm sure with more performance that will develop. Also don’t force the vocal and loose vocal control.

Livy Allen – Good projection for your own a song, the song has potential but lacked a distinctive chorus to really keep you hooked in, click here for more on writing a pop chorus. Very good stage presence. You’ve got a really interesting voice. 

Lamont – Lovely deep raspy vocal which would suit a west end production. In terms of being original, click here for more advice on how to do music covers. Good expression and commitment but don’t get too carried away and lose control and your focus on mic control. Great stage presence. The end was slightly too high for your vocal range. You give a very energetic performance, with more practice this will only get better.
