Elizabeth Kinrade – Good projection. Remember to express the emotion in the song to bring the song to life even more. Click here for advice on how to sing with emotion.  

Lauren Rogers – Nice rasp to your vocal. Watch your breathing as you looked a little strained in the face at points, so try and relax and go with the flow. 

Sapphire Henson – Good vocal control. Unique tone. Watch your eye contact - make it more focused to bring out the emotion of the song. Click here for advice on how to sing with emotion. Song choice was very popular and dated, so click here for our advice on song choice. Try and be more confident, you have the talent!

Eleanor Ireland – There’s potential here. Remember to engage with your audience more rather than looking down at your instrument. Click here for tips on performing visually. Sweet tone but work on the control to be even better.

Rebecca Loveday – Very engaging and confident. Lovely tone and relaxed control. Don’t be scared to use your arms to express the song even more. Click here for tips on performing visually

Lucy Waller – A soft and simple song. Very pure. Nice tone and unique rasp. Remember to start with 100% control.

Harry Mallaghan – Great projection. You showed emotion and engaged well. Great control and tone – very passionate. 

Tantrum – There’s lots of potential here and you committed well to the performance. Think about performing more as a duo rather than individuals though – interact with one another. Keep focused on the lyrics throughout as your diction was quite poor. Click here to see ways to improve your diction. Flowed better as the performance went on.

Jazzy B - Vocally you are very strong and have great projection. Your posture looked a little odd and uneasy though. This can be easily sorted if you film yourself to see what’s going on and correct it. Awesome image.

May Hill – You have an amazing voice but now try to find your own style. Click here for some tips on performing a creative cover. You’ve got it, so give us more attitude.

Milton Keynes singers wanted – feedback continued

Lashayah – Nice vocals and a great range. Such a big voice for someone so young! Your song choice was very uninspiring, dated and very popular however. Click here for our advice on the importance of song choice. Try and work on your projection now.  Great image, loved the outfit. 

Jasmin Donavan – Image, vocals and performance = you could be the full package! You gave a polished performance and had great projection. Try to feel the song now – give us more passion. Click here for advice on how to sing with emotion. Try and control your volume levels from high to low as it comes across as shouting otherwise.

Ryana – Perfect song choice. Try and give us more passion and emotion – there’s definitely something there. Click here for advice on how to sing with emotion. Great outfit. Good control.

Naomi Sklar – Wow, what an impact! Perfect control. Felt the passion – you demonstrated this with your facial expressions and your hands. Remember to slow down in places.

Remix – You guys work well together as a group. The image needs work. Click here for advice on synchronising your act image. Liked the rap breakdown. Now work on building up the harmonies - you’re a big group and there should be more vocal depth created through harmonies. 

Lauren Flower – You have a belter of a voice! Great presence. Your chorus was on point. Well done on a fantastically performed audition!

Nicole Donovan – Your song choice really suited your vocal and you really connected with the song. Great show of emotion. Hold the powerful notes for the chorus. Build the song - don’t give us too much too soon. Great image.
