Prides itself on telling stories that get marginalised in society, expressing the voices of those
that left behind by conventional media.
This is the first time I've judged on a talent show and I was struck by the sheer
amount of talent on display.
In an ideal world we would have picked a top ten rather
than a top three with only one winner. The eventual winner was very good, especially
seeing as he was so young at the age of eighteen. He had also written his own song
which he sang brilliantly.
It was a good night with some great acts.
The night certainly has potential to be a stronger network of professionals in media,
arts, film, theatre, music industry.
The Melange Factor was a great opportunity to perform in a nice venue and environment,
whilst getting feedback. The audience were extremely supportive and I loved the host!
I found the feedback from the judges extremely helpful. Coming to the night as a
'vocalist', I had always sang other peoples songs, but the judges have inspired me
to put myself out there and become an 'artist'. I would recommend the night to anyone!
the record, I found the night extremely constructive. The host was fantastic and
the judges were very insightful and extremely helpful for me. I almost think the
judges could have been more honest and given a bit more constructive criticism. I
love having things to work on and they were almost too friendly at times! The only
criticism I would have is I think songs could be capped to three minutes. There were
a lot of performers to it over ran quite a bit and I think some songs could definitely
have been shortened a bit!
Thank you for letting me perform! I had a great time!! the judges were very thorough
and the host did a great job!! I really have no other suggestions apart from keep
doing what you're doing!!

Had a great time, so thanks for having me!
I found the performance fun and really
appreciated the feedback from the judges and also from other artists within the audience
- definitely a valuable experience.
I found the judge's assessments very good and
I was given great advice - I would say in particular that the advice I got from vin
(sorry if I got his name wrong - but I mean the central judge) was the most valuable
and I would have to say that throughout the night I felt that he gave the best feedback
to all artists.
I think the host was very good and has great experience in the area,
so overall good.
Performing with You was a pleasure and the feeling of a real competition was the
best part of it, helping the focus and the performance level.
The judges were very nice and their feedbacks useful to understand what could be
improved and how we can grow better.
The host was friendly and hilarious and I really
enjoyed chatting with him!!!
Had lot of fun performing there!!!
You are amazing guys!!!
I enjoyed performing on the night.
I thought the judges were kind and gave good comments.
This was encouraging.
Also, the host said I was a good lady. This made me blush. I
I think the show is a good show because it gives people the opportunity
to perform in front of a live audience and also gives them the opportunity to be
spotted. I also think the show is a brilliant idea.
Performing at the melange was good this was my second time so I got to see a different
variety of artist and hear different opinions about my voice from new judges.
the judges assessment was ok, I didn't agree with one of the comments but their opinions
won't hinder me in anyway. The host was ok although when I Last performed at melange
there was a guy and girl who I thought were really good at hosting. I think the host
would be better of as a judge to be honest.
I think the melange factor needs to cut
down the amount of acts there are on the night, its too many people and can get very
long, I think a maximum of 15 ppl per night would be better rather than 35
I enjoyed the event I found the judges assesments of my talent correct and they gave
me some good pointers of how to develop. The host of the show was marvellous and
gave much encouragemant and support. I would just like to suggest that some indications
of the acts coming up from time to time would help those with instruments to prepare...thanking
you all , for the opportunity to sing in the west end ...She Real..thats how my
name is pronounced.
First of alI I want to thank you for inviting me over for the contest, it was nice
to spend the evening there but since you asking for feedback I have to be honest.
found the advice of the judges useful but most of the time I think they were trying
to be too nice and not really honest with some of the people that were kind of pretending
to be singers.
I agree with one of the judges who said music business is already
ill and filling certain people with high hopes is not going to heal it. Of course
this is just my opinion. But I found a lot of great voices, and I wish all the best
for the talented people whom I met last night.
I really think the event its a great
opportunities for the people to showcase their talent and receive an instant, positive
or negative, reaction from the audience.
I think the judges made accurate comments and they gave pertinent advice to each
and every contestant.
The host seemed an experienced person in this particular line
I'd like to perform again in the future. Maybe some improvements should
be made regarding the CD s for the background orchestration of the song.
I had a great time performing last night , it was another great chance to sing to
a live audience and the variety of singers was great and very entertaining.
the judges feedback was good very helpful and constructive for everyone and I liked
how they were not at all intimidating!
The host was lovely and again very welcoming.
The only thing I would say that I felt there we just maybe a few to many contestants
so it felt like it went on just a little bit too long
I found it great!
All the compilation - the Judges, the Host and all the talents down
there; Everything was perfect..Besides, the sound,the plugs for the guitars, the
mics were kinda old,or not working properly - the atmosphere was still amazing :)
Judges - maybe the ones which were on the left side and or the right side were a
bit careless for the rest of the people which were not "shining" like some of the
top-talented performers, but the guy in the middle(don't remember the name) was always
honest with all of the people, and I liked him the most!
As well the host was amazing!
He was always trying to show the best sides of the performers, even if they weren't
performing perfectly!I appreciate that very much, as I was one of those imperfect
Melange factor was very cool and I liked it...but unfortunately I couldn't do what
I really wanted to do and was a little disappointing cuz of the backing track wasn't
working!! but I had so much fun and hope to make it next month...the assessment of
the judges was very good special the guy who was sitting in the middle..he was more
passionate and giving people advice.. but I wasn't really agree with their decision
of choosing the winner! and the reason is that they cared more about his sad story
and wanted to give him a chance or opportunity.... it was true that he wrote a song
by himself and had a good voice too..but judges got emotional about his sad story..I
bet there were a few girls who had amazing voice!! any way I cant wait for ur next
month competition to show myself more!!
Your experience being on Melange factor.
I cannot tell you how thrilled I am to have
won the Melange Factor! I didn’t even think I had a much of a chance of coming 5th!
I love to have the chance to be able to show people that didn’t even know me what
I have to offer to the world, and I was humbled by and feel privileged to have been
able to watch and learn from other contestants. I really wanted to say how unbelievably
talented the contestants were! It was a really fantastic night! The juges had really
good comments! I really can’t say how happy I am to have been able just to take part,
let alone WINNING it!
How do you think it is going to help your career being on MF?
till now, I haven’t been sure about what to do with my life. I pulled out of going
to drama school last minute, and my confidence has gone down since then. But being
in the Melange Factor help me realise, that this is what I’m meant to be doing! I
hope that if anything, itn has given me more confidence to be able to go out there
and do my stuff!
Have you made any useful contacts?
The Melange Factor has been incredibly
up lifting to my spirits and I hope that I will have the privilege to work with an
act or two from the show in years to come! Thank you Melange Factor!
How did you find
the Judges assessment of your talent?
I really apreciated the honnest opinions of
the judges. It makes me very proud of myslef to have had such good comments and also
ones that HELP me! That was a big thing!
Thank you so much for having me! I had a
I enjoyed the night. Good vibe and crowd.
It felt a bit that the judges were supporting fun talent. Not so much real talent.
Got useful comments though, and are greatful for that.
