Jordan Hay – Good audition. Try and change the lyrics around and make it as original as you can. Click here for some tips on performing a creative cover.
Sharna Lockett – Vocally you were very good but performance-wise you just played with your bottle and didn’t give eye contact to your audience so look to work on that. Click here for advice on stage performance.
Scott Walters – Nice tone and you played well. Changing the dynamics around would have kept the interest going in your performance. Also look to engage more with your audience. Click here for advice on stage performance. Perhaps pick a more upbeat, modern song?
Natasha Wolfe – The potential is there, but a good vocal coach will be able to help you with improving your projection and range to be even better. Click here to see the benefits of singing lessons.
Sophie Kitchener – Great song choice, I felt the passion. Good image.
Alex Stratchan – You were drowned out by your guitar. Try to project your voice more so we can hear you! Watch your guitar’s tuning and look up to engage with your audience. Click here for advice on stage performance.
Kasia Wardman – Very engaging – great interaction with the judges. Great original song. Have confidence to commit more to the performance as the song has potential. Film yourself so you can see what you are doing as you could express the emotion in the song better. Click here for advice on how to sing with emotion and click here for advice on stage performance.
Penny Jenning – You started too high for the song. Drop it down so it doesn’t sound uncomfortable. Work on your chest voice to strengthen the sound of your vocals. It was a nervy audition (which is understandable) but more performance experience will build your confidence. Click here for advice on building your confidence on stage.
Sophie Makin – Remember to project more as you lose the tuning towards the end of each line. Try and commit more to the performance so we (the audience) can connect to the emotion in the song. Click here for advice on how to sing with emotion and click here for advice on stage performance.
Giordana - Great song choice and connection to the song. Remember to connect with the audience more so we can connect better to you. Click here for advice on stage performance. Great outfit. Loved the swagger!
Chloe Allen – Lovely vocal but the song choice was very popular and dated, so click here for our advice on song choice.
Milton Keynes singers wanted – feedback continued
Chloe Mannerings – Focus on the key and timing as you waivered at times which a good vocal coach can easily assist you with. Click here to see the benefits of singing lessons. Work on your posture - if you take your hands off your hips you will project better.
Courtney Winterson – Unfortunately you picked a very popular song choice (we used to see this song sung 3-4 times a show at times!). With popular songs you have to do it extremely differently and be as creative and as original as you can. Click here for some tips on performing a creative cover.
Isabel Marsh – You had a nervy start but you then got in your stride, so practice hard so have the confidence to start the song with impact.
David Perkins - Nice vocally but now you’ve got to think performance. Let go of your arms as you have so much more to give. Your song choice was poor as you lacked control on the high notes, so take that into consideration for next time.
Paula Ruessman – Liked the mood of the song but perhaps focus more on making the hooks stand out more, as the song started to meander a little. Lovely voice and range.
Sara Barter – Strong performer but would have benefitted from working the dynamics as it was a little one dimensional. Click here for advice on how to sing with emotion. Loved the hiccup in your voice.
Georgie Bird – Great personality. Love the guitar. Beautiful audition. Love the second guitar – it adds more definition. Great build of the song from start to finish. Now work on engaging with each other and having a connection.
Georgia Bray – Why wait until your turn to have a drink? Cool outfit but your image and song choice didn’t match so think of a better way to synchronise those. Click here for advice on synchronising your act image. Great tone.
Alfie Jack – Great confidence and falsetto notes. Well projected. Don’t forget to engage with each other to show a connection with each other as performers. Awesome original.
Caroline Kunft – Interesting song topic. I think you need to commit more to your performance as you seemed to let it meander around rather than control the build of the song.
Claire Kunft – Good song choice but you did it very straight rather than adding your own spin. Click here for some tips on performing a creative cover.
Yeti – Great image. You need to be confident, and a lot louder. Need to find a good vocal coach to improve your projection. Never stop! Great tone. You don’t know how good you are!
Daisy Day – Great quirky look and your song definitely has potential. Finally a great unique vocal. Love the swagger. It was cutting edge. With the song style it’s difficult to perform behind a piano so you may need to consider whether that is your best option to convey the emotion in the song. Click here for advice on stage performance.
Andrienne – Did you warm up fully? It felt you had more potential. Your performance got better towards the end. Well done for still coming in without a guitar player.
