Taila-Nichole – The song choice just failed to bring out the nice tones in your vocal which at times you could hear, click here for importance of song choice. Commit more to the performance work that stage and make us buy into the emotion of the song, click here for tips on performance.

Gee9ine & Michaela – Needed one to take lead it as it clashed a little, let the performance breathe as you have the talent. Good engagement between the performers but be sure to engage with your audience with the same attention, click here for audience engagement.

Origin – Good impressive entrance to grab the attention from the start. Super control and projection perhaps leave the kitten like moves and develop some new ones that convey the emotion even more, click here for singing with emotion.

Jack (Party with the wolves)- Need to make your mind up with your name as it’s confusing what to put on the power point let alone what name you want to known as. Great vocals. Image was spot on. It would look really cool if you had dancers?  

Soraya – You’ve had long enough to learn the music for what is a one song performance and as a result you lost all engagement to your audience. Try to perform without the music as high as we couldn’t see your face. You’ve got a really lovely tone to your voice. Great arrangement of the song.

Vanessa – Lovely tone and sustained the notes beautifully, click here for performing a creative cover. Watch your control on those top notes! Great recording voice. Have more confidence in yourself on stage, you’re good, believe it! 

NaynayLondon – Your backing track was way too loud, it was difficult to hear yours over them, click here for backing music tips. Also going forward need to click here for performing a creative cover. You also need to work with a good vocal coach to improve your control and tuning to be even better, click here for the importance of voice training.

Camden singers wanted

Lillian – Good idea to do the mash up, must try and use the stage, you were very static, click here for tips on performance. You have really good vocal control but look to work on the performance side. Try to keep your eyes open and connect more with the audience!

Izzi Mumbray – It’s an empty song instrumentally so it’s massively important you fill it out with vocals to thicken it up, project strong and add vocal runs. Your vocal was however too thin and therefore as a song choice it wasn’t such a good one, click here for importance of song choice. Sweet performance. 

Bex Tu – Lovely layered harmonies to give a real depth to the vocal. As performers try and engage and connect with each other on stage a bit more and not just at the end. Performance wise don’t be frightened to use the stage and arms it was a bit mechanical, click here for tips on performance.

Laura Murphy – Very theatrical which makes it difficult to be original, take care with your mic control, click here for microphone techniques and also look to use that stage more, click here for tips on performance.

James Laurence – Backing track was a little cabaret in style. Vocally you have good projection and diction. Watch your mic control especially with the transition from keys in particular. Song needed a vocal hook to leave you with.
