Step 10 in improving your chances of succeeding on any vocal talent show is mastering Music Production - Improve Your Sound - The rise in popularity of work-from-home studios has significantly impacted the music production landscape in recent years, driven by the increasing availability of tools and technology. This growth has led to the emergence of mobile recording rigs, making it possible to record full band performances anywhere. While one might anticipate a wealth of high-quality music,… the skill of creating eye contact and effectively selling both the song and the performance.

One of the most crucial abilities to master is eye contact. If you are uncomfortable making eye contact in general, it’s important to overcome that fear. Otherwise, the judges may perceive your lack of confidence. Great artists know how to connect with their audience.

To help you overcome your fear, a good practice is to lock eyes with the person you are engaging in conversation with. Maintain that eye contact. You can even turn it into a game and see how long it takes for them to feel uncomfortable and look away. Eye contact is the foundation of an artist’s confidence. Consider this: when you attend a concert or meet your favorite artist, don’t you feel more engaged if they see you and look you directly in the eyes? Most likely, you would. When you perform your song, don’t just uncomfortably stare into empty space. Deliver your song to the audience, including the judges. Sell it to them. Convince them that you have lived the song you are singing. Mastering this skill of eye contact while performing can make a significant difference in advancing to the next round, even if your vocal performance may not be flawless.

Here’s a quick story about the power of eye contact. When I used to perform showcases for record labels, the room would often be filled with men. Now, imagine singing a love song to that kind of audience. Sheesh! If you are a male singer, this can be quite uncomfortable, to say the least. However, I eventually overcame that discomfort and turned it into one of my strongest assets. What I discovered was that the more I locked eyes with them, the more uncomfortable THEY became. I had flipped the script on them. I showed them that I wasn’t afraid; I was willing to sing any song, on any topic, to persuade them that I had what it takes to be a recording artist. I’m not sure what they thought, but it worked for me.

Remember, mastering eye contact is an essential skill for any performer. It can convey confidence, engagement, and authenticity, which can greatly enhance your chances of success on a vocal talent show.
