Jack Evans – Nice diction, just make sure you are as original as possible. 

Aiden Houston – Good control always ensure you fully warm up before singing to show us your optimum potential, click here for tips on warming up vocals. 

Jess Spink – Good mash up and good projection. Lots of potential. Keep songwriting. 

Madi Feary – Good vocally just try and add a bit more expression to your performance to bring out a better connection to the emotion in the song. 

Alex Hill – Good original, remember to perform as you were very static as you kept your arms folded throughout, click here for tips on performance. 

Michael Cook – Decent enough track but you need to warm up and write songs that suit your vocal range not so sure this song does. Click here for advice on writing songs. 

Joey Oscar Braddick – Very good audition and real potential in your song.

Hollie Beardsmore-Cooke – You seemed to connect with the song but you need to express that connection better. Keep focused throughout. Bring more confidence to your performance. 

Amy Curtis – Love the title to the song and sounded really good. You need to build the projection in your vocal as you are very quiet. Working on your performance would help it sell it to us a little more. 

Beth George - Competent key playing which allowed you to engage with your audience and express the song emotionally. Good job. 

Brighton singers wanted – feedback continued

Kyle Rossi – Talented boy, would benefit from working on improving your projection to be even better. You have a great look for musical theatre.

Adaora Moniah – Lovely raspy vocal and good projection. Try writing your own songs, click here for advice on getting started. 

Sophie Palmer – Really ensure you are warmed up before singing as it felt you didn’t sing to your full potential.

Grace Will – Really consider song choice it was dated and also popular, click here for the importance of song choice.

Tonie Jade - Going forward look to make the songs your own rather than an impression, click here on some tips on doing a creative cover.

Dominque Piercey – Good vocals but it’s a very popular song choice, click here for more advice on song choice. Also look to engage more with your audience to give greater connection.

Jade Green – Good song choice, don’t need to go crazy with your image but pick one people will remember and relate too, click here for tips on act image. 

Rory Knox – A very stiff performance, relax, more performance will build confidence. 

Bethan Roles – Diction was clear and you expressed it well. Classical song choice can lack originality. 

Abigail Medhurst -  Vocally you have the potential, however Adele is incredibly hard  as a cover on a number of levels as she’s so popular and so respected going to be hard to get anywhere near her so make it really different or select a different song. Click here for information on song choice.

Mica Young – Good control, going forward think about making it your own. Click here for tips on doing a creative cover.

Emily Izen Row – Look to work on your guitar work so you have confidence to look up more and engage with us and express the song, you didn’t look up once. Work to develop your own songwriting, click here for tips on writing songs. 

Brighton singers wanted – feedback continued

Georgina Larner – Good projection, perhaps look to put your own spin on the song and certainly more dynamics to sustain the interest. 

Katie Connor – Vocally sound but make the cover your own not just a straight version of the original. Click here for tips on performing a creative cover. 

Cynosure – Well worked harmonies. Well-rehearsed audition. Just work on a little more engagement between you to show a connection and chemistry. Work on making your image stand out; click here for tips on act image. 

Darcey ridgeway-Brown – Would never recommend doing an Adele song but you did it justice. Adele is incredibly hard  as a cover on a number of levels as she’s so popular and so respected going to be hard to get anywhere near her so make it really different or select a different song. Click here for information on song choice.

Maddy Jewkes – A different song choice and you sung it well. Performance was a bit robotic and it lacked the expression required so look to work on that to be even better. 

Two Way Street – Good connection and chemistry between performers, try and translate that connection to connect with your audience on the same level as a bit self-indulgent. 

Lucie Francis – You’re improving every time we see you. Good connection with the music but look to work on your projection which a good vocal coach will be able to be able to help you with. Not sure the song choice was right, click here for tips on song choice. 

Jordan Ravenhill – Lovely relaxed performance and nice on the ear.

Sharon Paes – Never stop to make excuses it just highlights the error. Great look.

Luciano – Clear diction and confident player. More eye contact would be good to engage with your audience.

Yassi Vaziri – Projection could be better so work on that, but your song has potential. Better dynamics will drive through the hook and help with the projection of the hook.
