OPEN MIC UK MUSIC INDUSTRY FEEDBACK
Magdalena Wolk – Strong sound. Backing singer was a great shout and levels were well considered by all act members. Song is good but not necessarily strong enough for a break-through single.
Emma Ahwai – Cool vibe and lovely tone. Guitar work was really tidy which helped with a truly professional performance.
Perry Hood – Very husky vocal which is very sought after. Your song now needs a vocal hook line to be more defining and to stick in your head.
Peri Mehmet – Lovely vocal and a good song choice - it really suited your vocal range!
Vassie – Good idea with the cajon etc but needed more of a committed performance, as it felt a bit lifeless.
Lee Oliver-Hall – Lovely acoustic song. Needed a change up which was delivered but the song is guilty of being a little repetitive.
Bianka Jagwar – Put a lot into the performance. A very theatrical start and a well thought through performance backed up with an immense vocal.
Gary Phelan – Good commitment in the performance and a decent song but it didn’t have the vocal hook that’s going to stick in your head.
Steffan James – These guys have got a really good sound although a little dated along with the image. Backing vocals blended well which was a fun and catchy number!
BangOrang – These guys are good movers and performers. The song just isn’t good enough to take them to places they want to and they could do with the right song.
Nick Turnham – Nice song and a solid performance. Not sure the performance had enough impact to really push for the Grand Final so need to look at song choice.
Jerome Anthony – With so many acoustic acts in the show you really need to have an instant hit single to shine which is just so difficult, this is a decent song but not a stand out one.
OPEN MIC UK LONDON AREA FEEDBACK
Stephen Cornwall – This guy just keeps improving with every round! Great vocal control for the majority of the time.
Anton Van De Mere – This guy has been a pleasure to have in the competition. He always does everything with a smile and the song is one that could easily grace a West End show.
Roduim – Vocalist has a lovely vocal. As a group you need to interact more and engage with the audience more. It’s all a bit detached.
Amir Sharma – Was a bit too much of a mash-up and although talented it lacked a bit of continuity.
Nick D – Such vocal control! The song choice really suited your vocal. Just commit more to the expression of the performance.
Cinderalla B – Good start and distinct sound but perhaps a bit too much reliance on the guitar.
Cadence – Harmonies are excellent/exceptional. Shame you did the same song as the Regional Final as would have been nice to see what else you can do.
The Tailormade – Catchy song and the guys are very snappy with both image and the performance.
Anita – Need more projection in your vocal. A good vocal coach will help you improve that and also getting closer to the microphone will help volume.
Carla Marques – Backing track for once worked well with the live playing to give an edge to the performance. A cool vibe, very listenable.
Dan Cawley – One of the best songs we’ve heard today and he brought the passion out from the song.
Josie Such – Nice song but a little bit static in expression and emotion.
Nubienne – Song is pleasant to the ear, nice piano work.
Totie Southwell - Silky and sultry vocal to a sentimental song which finished the show off in fine fashion.
