Olivia Keating - You have a nice image and some very quirky vocals, but you would benefit from a few singing lessons, click here for importance of voice training. You need to work on your vocal transitions from speech to higher register. You closed your eyes for the first six seconds this is the time to engage the audience! Click here for tips on audience engagement.

Valerie Dunn - Be careful when singing with a guitar, as they both didn’t seem to match and it sounded like you were doing two different songs. There were timing issues and your vocal was a bit pitchy throughout. Maybe look into getting some singing lessons, click here for importance of voice training.

Kerrie Anne - You need to start believing in yourself! You have a lovely voice, so try and mean what you say and your voice will go with you. Would have liked to see you give more in the performance as you looked scared, click here for more information on stage performance. You have a great image!

Nathan Mateer - Nice keyboard skills. Try and open your eyes and engage with the audience more, click here for tips on performing with a keyboard. Vocally you need a bit of work which vocal lessons will help with. Look to work on your diction as it was hard to hear what you were saying at times, click here for tips on diction for singers.

David Alexander - Loved your vocal changes. Great use of your voice with great comedic timing. Genius!

James Conor - Very confident performance and great image. You looked so comfortable up there, keep doing what you are doing! Great catchy song too.

Belfast Talent Contest Feedback

Karen - Good communication of the words, but don’t be frightened to move around the stage as this will help give your performance more dynamics, and will help connect with the audience more, click here for more information on stage performance. You were a little pitchy at times.

Johnny Irwin- Nice cool image and old school attitude. Don’t be afraid to take breaks between verses and the chorus.

Gemma Mc Nerney -  Your performance and stage presence is brilliant and vocally strong, but with regards to your performance, just be real. Mean what you sing and show emotion; click here for more tips on how to sing with emotion. Love your voice and love you!

Lisa-Marie Lyle - Great song, but all one dynamic vocally, try adding some different dynamics to enhance the performance, click here for tips on singing dynamics. You have a great image. Try not to look so nervous.

Matt Burns - It came across too much like you were trying to be Liam Gallagher, try and find who you are as an artist. There were a few timing issues, and you weren’t the strongest vocally, you can benefit from some vocal lessons, click here for importance of voice training.

Ian Stuart - You have a great singing voice, and we loved your charm, but it did come across like it would be better suited for a cruise ship. Try and be more original in your performance.

Rebekah Margaret Brown - Nice lyrics on your original song and some lovely guitar work. However, parts did sound too much like an Adele wannabe, try and work more on your own sound. You come across as very nervous, click here for tips on building stage confidence.

James Mc Neice - Really like your work, but it came across as though you were rushing it which made the lyrics a bit hard to hear, working on your diction will help with this, click here for tips on diction for singers. You have a likeable look about you. Great performance!
