Sam Wilks – Need more variation in song to make it more interesting, all very similar. Got a little samey, click here for advice on dynamics. Your vocals are really smooth and have lots of character.
Jamie Leigh – Original song needs more light and shade, image worked well for the performance, click here for tips on image. Bright, clear tonality. Great, strong folk voice.
Tom Reilly – Image worked well for your act. Nice vocal, performed to everyone in the room, perhaps use stage more don’t stand still for so long. A tad too musical theatre, make emotion real not planned. Great falsetto and even better at full tilt. You’ve got great control of your voice.
The Crowe – Good belief in your lyrics, image worked enough but you could marry the image up with the performance more. Use the stage more; click here for tips on performance. Nice to see no American twang to a rap. Try and add more dynamics to break it up a bit more, click here for advice on dynamics.
Harrison Larner-Main - Image worked for your act. Be careful with diction; click here for tips on diction. Nice original song. Open your eyes more and don’t forget the audience. Cool variation in vocal style.

Shelley – Open your eyes more, look and perform to audience. Take the mic off the stand, also watch your mic control we lost the quality of your vocals at parts, click here for microphone techniques. Use the stage more, click here for tips on performance.
Anne Marie – Use the stage more. Don’t sing over the audience, sing to them. Would like to see a more contemporary song, click here for the importance of song choice. Image can be improved for a performance on stage. Try to make use of the long intro by performing a little, the intro was so long it felt like you were enduring it.
Atlanta Rose - Moody performance, image worked. Good eye contact, vocals got very nasally, had a very 80s feel to it. Use the stage more; click here for tips on performance. Good dynamic range. Powerful rock vocal.
Lorin – Certainly filled the stage with guitarist and backing dancers, personally I think you could have held the audience better without dancers (even though they were great) it took away from you and you were greatly qualified to hold the audience. Not sure the whole performance suited the song choice, click here for the importance of song choice.
Steph – Strong vocal, but you need to use the stage and perform to audience, not over their heads, click here for tips on performance. Image a little too plain on a black stage. Lovely rich resonant tone.
Little Red – Image was a little dated, and black doesn’t work well on a black stage, click here for tips on image. Be careful with diction, we need to hear what word you’re singing, click here for tips on diction. If you’re not using a mic stand then use the stage!
Hollie Cole – Pick a different song – very over done (although you sang it well), click here for the importance of song choice. Dressed worked well, would like to see you use the stage more though. Look at the audience, eye contact is crucial.
