The TeenStar singing auditions are for singers, duos and groups looking for an alternative to The X Factor auditions. On the day of your TeenStar singing audition, similarly to The X Factor auditions you will be asked to prepare a performance of up to 2 minutes and no longer (we recommend that you keep instrumentals and intros to a minimum and perform the best part of your song at the start). It's all about first impressions at auditions so ensure you take attention to your image and always put the best of your song in the intro for maximum impact! I.e, consider beginning with the chorus. The TeenStar singing auditions are closed to the public and will be in front of a professional judging panel. Hundreds of acts audition each day and are allocated times across the whole day to avoid unnecessary waiting around and congestion.
If you intend to sing a cover for your singing audition, try and perform it in your own style as the competition welcomes individuality. If singing a cover, you may perform with up to two instruments as backing, or sing acapella.
For those intending to sing their own original material (i.e a song they have written), you may bring a CD backing track, or you can perform with up to two backing instruments, or sing acapella if you wish. Please have it in mind to keep your set up as simple as possible to avoid eating into your singing audition time.
Singers and acts will be auditioning for a place in the TeenStar Regional Final Showcase so make an impression and hopefully you’ll bag a place in the live shows. Ensure your singing audition date and time is in your diary and we look forward to seeing you there! Aspiring solo artists, vocal groups and duos. Enter the TeenStar singing auditions by clicking here!
If in the event that you are ill or unable to make the nearest singing audition to you, please contact webteam@TeenStarCompetition.co.uk to arrange an audition elsewhere, and if you are successful in your audition we will endeavour to place you into the Regional Final Showcase closest to you.
