Shika - Don’t be afraid to use the power in your voice. Be brave and push yourself more. A wonderful voice but the song choice could have had a better impact, click here for good audition songs. Wonderful low notes. A very moving performance which came across very well.

Shannon - Really enjoyed your performance with some lovely control vocally. Try and use the stage more to give a better overall performance, click here for stage performance tips. Don’t be afraid to use the entire stage. A very professional performance, so well done. 

Reading’s Got Talent – Regional Final Feedback

Lydia - A very brave song choice with Bruno Mars, but very well delivered. Working with a vocal coach to help you develop would be beneficial for you, click here for the importance of vocal training. You have a really strong mid tone to your voice but need to work on it to be more powerful. 

Jasmine - Keep singing like you do as you have a very strong voice. Just try to control the high notes a bit more. An amazing delivery for such a young girl. The song is very hard to sing and you made it look easy. Some vocal coaching would really benefit bringing your level up, click here for the importance of vocal training. Very well animated, so well done. 

Anita - A very tough song to sing but there is a massive voice waiting to come out of you. Great image. Look at bringing more warmth into your voice and supporting from your lower stomach muscles. Be vigilant about the quality of the backing track as it sounded strange, click here for advice on music backing tracks.

Charlotte Score - You performed the song really well and used the stage with good movement. Your vocals did not have much variation though your top range is really strong.  A lot of potential here but was missing that sparkle in your eye. 

KTG - What a gorgeous and unique voice you have! You have a lovely tone to your voice with good control. You have a great image and stage presence but do not let the nerves get the better of you.  Keep singing! 

Francesca Luker - A great original song. Made me sit up and take notice of you. Take your time when you are playing as you had a tendency to speed up when you were nervous. Your top notes and projection were very good. Loved the overall power and depth in your voice. 

Sophie Elise - You have a beautiful smile and lovely tone to your voice. A very sensitive performance. It came across effortless at times so well done. You blew me away with such an amazing effortless performance. A big well done. 

Reading’s Got Talent – Feedback from Judges

Lauren McGhie - You started off a bit nervous but eased into it as the performance went on. Your voice could do with a bit of sparkle which can help by vocal coaching, click here for the importance of vocal training. A little more confidence would help the overall performance and come across better on stage. 

Chloe Hackett - A beautiful overall performance. I don’t think you needed the dancers and backing vocals though it did add a bit to the song, so well done. Click here for advice on backing dancers. Try to add a bit of warmth into your voice.

Erin Whitaker - Loved the performance but try and keep your focus on your vocals. You had lots of good movement throughout your performance and had a great song choice. Try not to copy the artist too much and try and be yourself more, click here for how to do music covers. Work on your vocals a bit more as need to add some warmth and support so you don’t strain.

Hazel - You have a lovely unique tone to your voice. Try and take risks and experiment with your voice/range. It is vital to choose the correct song choice which could have been better for you, click here for good audition songs. I would have like to have heard more of your voice/range. 

Amelia Rose - You totally owned the stage with great vocals, so well done. Try and engage with the audience more if you can to get them more engaged with you, click here for engaging the audience. Some added vocal sessions/coaching would really benefit bringing you further on.

Liberty - An excellent all round performance. Every time we see you on stage you get better and better. You are so confident up on stage which comes across really well. A good image and great original song.

Meg Wylie – Great confident performance. Lovely vocals but try not to rely on the microphone as your safety net. Take the mic off the stand at times and use the stage more. A real connection however was made and came across with the audience well.
