TEENSTAR MUSIC INDUSTRY FEEDBACK – PRE-TEEN
Sophia – Great, confident stage presence. Lovely vocals, try to smile more whilst singing. Good eye contact with the audience and good use of body language. Great potential.
Megan Bibby – Lovely rich soulful vocals for your age. Your lower range is stronger than your higher range, so watch some of those higher notes. You have star quality, keep going! You have strong stage presence but remember to look at the audience when performing.
Alfie – Good song choice for you. Lovely sweet vocal. Good guitar playing, it complimented your performance nicely. You gave a confident performance. Try to keep your eyes open to avoid shutting off the audience.
Pinky – Great outfit!! It really makes you stand out. You’ve obviously thought a lot about the visual aspect of your performance. Great eye contact with the judges, you really looked like you enjoyed yourself up there. Work on the vocals and you will be a star. One to watch.
Mia Kirkland – Lovely dress. If you can get over the nerves you’ll be an excellent performer. Good job, but I think the song choice was too big for you – Beyonce is incredibly hard for anyone and you struggled with some of the bigger higher notes.
Abby Dolan – Lovely sweet vocals. Good projection and support on the long notes in the chorus. Good use of the stage and body language. Just watch your pitching in places, which a good vocal coach can help you improve on and take you to the next level. Keep focusing on your vocal work and in a couple of years you could be ready.
Mia Paris – Good song choice for you, it really suited your vocals. Great use of stage! You looked so confident up there! You’re a star. A very enjoyable performance.
Erin Savage – Excellent delivery of the song. You really owned that stage and worked the audience nicely. You looked like you really enjoyed yourself which is great to see! Work on your vocals a little.
Jay Casey – Great look. Great song choice for you – you are like a little Olly Murs, especially with your stage presence. A confident chap with a cheeky chappie image. The vocals are good, but I think working with a vocal coach to help you with your dynamics and range will really take you to the next level.
Roxy Waite – Fantastic image. It really suited your act. Loved the ukulele, it really complimented your performance. Loved your rendition of the song, you really made it your own. Bring more confidence to the performance, some more live experience would do the trick.
Lucy Peel – Amazing powerful vocals for your age. Brilliant stage presence – very musical theatre. A couple of missed notes due to nerves, be confident you have a strong voice!
BitterSweet – Great outfits, really well thought out. Lovely harmonies but they still need a little work. Love the mash up. In a few years, watch them fly.
Ty Lewis – Amazing vocal ability for your image. Star potential here! Brilliant song choice really suited your vocals and I loved your rendition of the track. Be more confident with your performance and smile a little! Now work on finding your image as an act.
TEENSTAR 2014 HUDDERSFIELD MUSIC COMPETITION FEEDBACK – PRE-TEEN
Amy Rose Skelton – Very well performed – you made excellent use of your body language and facial expressions to convey the lyrical content of the song. There’s potential for improve this performance, would suggest coaching and mentoring.
Eliza Mackenzie – You’re a star! Your vocals are so powerful and well controlled and so beyond your years. Big song but you sang it very well! Good presence after initial nerves.
Ella Brown – The dancers added a nice touch to your performance. Lovely arrangement of the song. Such lovely vocals. With the correct inventory you’ll be a great performer.
Sophie Reddy – Lovely dress. You put so much passion into the performance. Good song choice and great vocal control. A bright future awaits you, keep performing!
Sasha France – 100% on the great song choice – it really suited your vocals. However, next time you could try something a bit more modern. Lovely soulful vocals. Watch some of those top notes. With some coaching and mentoring would help you stay in key and keep the higher notes.
Ellie-mae – Great outfit. You know how to deliver a performance with a great voice. Alicia Keys songs are never easy, but a strong attempt. Use the stage to express the song. Well done Ellie!
Campbell Jade – Great image, good song choice, although could’ve sang it a key up! Work on your confidence and your performance. There is more to come from this little lady.
