TEENSTAR MUSIC INDUSTRY FEEDBACK – MID-TEEN
Billie-Reanne – Good song choice! Really interesting, unique voice. Working with a vocal coach to improve your projection and diction would help. Good use of dynamics. You have great potential.
The Nerds – Really like both of your voices, they compliment each other really well. Loved the original song, you NEED to try some harmonies to bring another dynamic to your performance.
Victoria-Jayne – Lovely image which really suited your act. You gave a superb performance and good guitar playing. Lovely silky vocals, they’re effortless. Ensure the audience can tell you’re enjoying yourself. Maybe drop the guitar right back at a pinnacle point in the song to add impact.
Katie Bosworth – Amazing vocals for your age, lovely tone, impressive range and really well controlled vocal runs! The performance improved as it went on, remember to start strong. Now work on trying to find your image as an act. Liked the piano accompaniment but feel like it needs more to take it to the next level.
Sophie Jean Parkinson – Unfortunately Let It Go has been the song of the tour so we’ve heard it so many times! Perhaps try picking a pop song and making it your own. However that said, you did a great job. Very powerful vocals for your age which you controlled well, and you have a great tone and clear diction.
Danielle Parker – Wow, what a great rendition of the song! Very unique. Your vocals are incredibly strong and soulful. Massive star potential. Gave me shivers. Keep this up and the music business will be chasing after you.
Originate – Love the act name. The harmonies need a little work to get to the next level. Great chemistry between you guys. There’s potential here, but I think you both need to work with a vocal coach to work on strengthening your voice.
Bethany Handson – Star performance. Your vocals are great when you’re belting. Liked the mash up. Very emotional and you showed it.
Emily Keeton – Lovely rich, soulful tone. However unfortunately you seemed to be out of key, a vocal coach could help you with that.
Danielle Leigh McGreevy – Very captivating performance. Very unique. You look like a star. Great vocals. Music needs you, keep at it.
Amy Ridley – Lovely meaning behind the song. Good guitar playing, it really complimented your performance. Being more adventurous with your songs keeps the audience’s attention. Strong professional performance.
Olivia Irvin – Absolutely amazing voice! Not one bad note. Confident performance, well sang! 10/10!

Olivia Dixon – Lovely vocals as always. Don’t look so nervous! A heartfelt performance. Work on your falsetto.
