Holly Robinson – Nice to hear an original. Make sure we can hear you though – your guitar was far too loud and overshadowed your voice! Need to make eye contact with your audience. Click here for stage performance tips for singers.

Justine Wilson – Nicely done. You picked the right song for your tones. Nice distinctive voice – good audition. Watch the nasal tones on your belt notes.

Marie Bell – Felt slightly rushed – take your time. Nice strong voice, good audition. Not sure it was the right song choice. Click here to see how song choice can improve your performance.

Elsie – Beautiful performance. You have good plucking techniques and vocally you are fab. Look up from your guitar a little more to connect with the audience! Make sure you project your vocals so we can hear you!

Amber Hughes – Good power behind your voice. It started slowly but the chorus was very good. 

Joe Fox – Good interpretation of the song. Project your voice as it was a little quiet. Sweet performance though, nicely done.

Olivia – Brill tone – watch your song choice to make sure it showcases your voice the best. Click here to see how song choice can improve your performance. You can definitely belt, you have lots of power but be careful of shouting. 

Shannon – Song choice is so important. The chorus was great, but the verse not so much as it was a little flat. Click here to see how song choice can improve your performance. Very well performed though, you have good vocals. 

Glasgow singers wanted – feedback continued

Paul – Great mid-range. You need quite a lot of warming up to nail those top notes! Click here for advice on warming up properly. Lovely touch of soul. Work on your control. 

Stephanie – Lovely small vocal. Pick the right song that fits the personality of your voice. Click here to see how song choice can improve your performance. The song has a lively beat, so remember to bring energy to your performance! Click here for stage performance tips for singers.

Kirsten – Great tone on the middle range. Work on those top notes now. Nice song choice and good stage presence. Loved the vocals. 

Connell – Brave to do an original song and when you kicked into the chorus your vocals shone! Confident guitar playing. Nice variety in your vocals. Watch those low notes. 

Shaun – You have a very unique tone. Watch those nasal tones – drop that jaw. Absolutely cracking performance – brilliant. Well done on doing your own track – always good to see. 

Annie – Great original song. You lost the verse slightly due to the low notes which you will have to work on, but the chorus was much better. 

Marley – Loved this original song! Loved the voice too – brilliant audition. Great image. Try not to look down at your guitar so much now. 

Megan – Your voice is lovely! Your keyboard work still needs a lot of work – try and look up and engage your audience more! Click here for stage performance tips for singers.

Fiona – Your vocals are good but be aware of your range. It’s a difficult song to sing, and needed more passion. Click here for stage performance tips for singers and click here for advice on singing with emotion.

Emma – Amazing tone. Relax, you’re great! Good strong performance.

Scott – Great strong vocals – just try and control those nerves now! Click here for advice on building stage confidence

Winging It – Love that folky vibe. Need to make sure the violin is tuned before the performance! Vocals need more power, so work on your projection.

M.E.G. – Perfect song choice for you. Very soft, but well-performance. Try and inject some more energy into the performance now. Click here for stage performance tips for singers

Jenna – Goosebumps – amazing! Great range and I was not expecting that power. You made sure your audition was full of energy, so keep carrying that forwards!

Jessica – Very original tone you have – watch your control and what notes you’re hitting as some were all over the place. You put bags of energy into your performance but need another song choice. Click here to see how song choice can improve your performance.

Craig – You have a lovely breathy tone and your song choice really showed that off! Work on developing your low range now and projecting your vocal.

Shona – Fabulous tone. Try to look like you’re enjoying the performance! Click here for stage performance tips for singers. The lyrics were a little difficult to make out – click here for advice on having good diction

Chloe – Nerves took over today. Click here for advice on building stage confidence. You have a great recording voice, you just need confidence now! Try and work on your playing ability as it distracted from your vocals. 

Terry Bling and Princey Boy – Great energy guys and a good performance. 

Nicole White – Such a lovely floaty tone which was lovely to hear and you controlled your vocals well. 

Tetra – Well done girls, I know you were 1 member short but the audition really showed your strengths with harmonies and timings. Good performance, but remember to smile!
