Singers and songwriters came to show off their talent at the Glasgow singing auditions this weekend

Glasgow Singing Auditions: Singers and songwriters came to Dance HQ in Glasgow for singing auditions in the hopes of gaining a place in the Open Mic UK Glasgow Regional Finals.

Music industry judges are at every stage of the music competition from the auditions to the Grand Final, including judges that work for the three major record labels (Universal, Warner and Sony) in attendance at last year’s competition, as well as national radio DJs, regional press and BBC Introducing, with judges getting more prestigious as the competition progresses.

These views in no way reflect the views of the Open Mic UK competition, and are published with a view to being beneficial to the performing acts.
