Check out more feedback from Reading’s Got Talent here.

Jenny Lunness - Always really tough going first but you took the stage well. Shined through in the end, so well done. A very strong voice but need to find more control, click here for vocal techniques. Good composure and delivery but needed to feel the music more. More support from lower stomach required. Remember to engage more with the audience.

Rebecca Meggs - Underneath the voice there is a beautiful voice waiting to come out. Keep working on getting more experience on stage. Great style of singing. A good warm tone and rich vocals but be more confident in your ability and don’t look so scared on stage. Smooth delivery but a little breathy in places. Try to iron out the longer notes.

Reading Singers Wanted – Regional Final Feedback

Chevonne - You can sing all the right notes but your performance could have conveyed the song better. I loved your style of singing but you need to improve to keep vocals steady. Would like to see you own the stage more, click here for stage performance tips

Charley-Lauren - Confident entrance with low notes consistent throughout the song. Maybe try and improvise a bit through the song/performance. You need use more of the stage to be a star. Great image with a lovely tone. It reminded me of Lana Del Rey with great power and control. You got my attention immediately so well done.

After Harmony - Beautiful harmonies and well-coordinated. As close to perfect as you can get, so well done. A very powerful performance which gave me goose bumps. Very mature concept which worked really well together. 

Jennifer - A brilliant performance and the expression which went along with the song was great. Great control and you had a good grasp on your vocals. Just have better breathing control at times, click here for breathing exercises for singing. There is a lot of potential but try not to sing through your nose as much. Very tasteful song choice, so well done to you.

Naomi Homerston – No sign of nerves! Confident and accurate performance with no signs of nerves, so well done. Well controlled vocals. Make sure you own the stage more, click here for stage performance tips

Rachel Flexer – Gorgeous voice. It’s evident that singing comes naturally to you. Performance needed a bit more energy but a good effort but held back by nerves. A gorgeous voice but wanted more movement and believable.  Needed to be more confident and own the stage more. 

Martha Hayes - Glad you played the guitar but watch your timing. A little bit clunky in places but work on your flow. Like the idea of the mash up but was a bit confused. Find your inner vocal strength. Maybe a softer song next time, click here for good audition songs.

Louisa May - Great image, sets you apart from other girls. Maybe some vocal coaching will bring out the power and depth to your voice.  Keep practising so both vocal and instrument compatibility complements each other. 

Reading Singers Wanted – Judges Feedback

Bethan - Lovely look during the entire song which represented your voice. Good song choice but support your lower notes more. More warmth needed as so much potential and consider singing lessons, click here for the importance of vocal training. Such clarity and confidence in your voice. Choose a song to show off your range better. 

Amber Silver -Very controlled and powerful vocals. Nice depth and richness. Find an individual voice as sounded like Paloma Faith. Love the stage name. Would like to hear you do an upbeat track! 

Norleen - Strong look but need some work on tuning and timing. Need some coaching to help with this. Hold back from shouting in the chorus, click here for tips on voice projection. Very bold song but did like the way you performed the song. Own that stage and take your moment.

Hannah Hay - Strong image and a good unusual song choice. Work on developing the warmth and depth of your voice. Calm and confident performance so well done.  Just maybe some better vocal control at times. 

Samson and the Lion - Brilliant image and incredible voice to back it up. A good range but don’t fall in the trap of being compared to Sam Smith. Work on developing your higher range with a vocal coach. Well planned and though out performance. Harmonies and backing track complimented it very well. Fantastic and unique comes to mind.

Rheo - Beautiful performance. Gorgeous image that suits your vocal. Open your throat and lower your jaw to allow more natural reverb into your voice. Improve confidence and nerves which will only come with experience.

Nicky Booty - Like how you introduced yourself to the crowd. Lovely warm mature vocals. Would have preferred a catchier song. Work on an image that compliments your vocals better, click here for tips on music synergy and image. Lovely, albeit delicate vocals. Your finger picking skills are great!
