Something about this performance really spoke to me and moved me. I felt like I got a good sense about your personality from this performance and you truly made it your own. I definitely think there’s something special about you!

A lovely performance. Very expressive in your stage presence. Great job!

In this competition, there have been many people covering Ailee — which is very difficult to pull off! — but I think you did Ailee the best. Your vocals are so strong and I never worried about you not being able to hit or sustain the notes. I almost wanted to hear it a cappella since you totally owned it all on your own. Plus, your had great stage presence. Very powerful.

 

JOHNNY AU
HELLO! ASIA EDITOR

Such a bold, powerful voice! You pulled it off singing a technically very difficult track. Well done!

I absolutely love your sunshiney stage presence and confidence. It definitely highlights your beautiful vocals and made your performance so enjoyable. I’m swayin’ in my seat.

You definitely made the song your own and it was awesome to see how comfortable you were playing guitar and singing at the same time. Keep smiling!

 

JOHNNY AU
HELLO! ASIA EDITOR

Finally we get to hear someone sing with a guitar! Well done on selecting a pretty song. Vocals was tight. Good energy.

Your voice is absolutely lovely!

 

JEFF BENJAMIN
FUSE FEATURES EDITOR

You have such a lovely voice and I love your rap style! At times it felt like you didn’t know where to look or you weren’t so comfortable, but I would suggest getting more used to singing (practice in the mirror) and really own your talents — you definitely have talent!

 

JOHNNY AU
HELLO! ASIA EDITOR

You have a lovely voice. The song selected fitted your vocal style well. Would love to hear you try a more demanding, technical song in future.

A very haunting vocal performance. And the only male in the final 10 vocalists – boys represent!

 

JEFF BENJAMIN

The high notes at the beginning of the chorus are really, really nice, but they get a little choppy at times and I think that came from you being a little nervous. With a little more confidence (and breath support), you can allow yourself to really go for those big notes since you can hit them and it will ultimately make for a better performance. Glide through them instead of thinking of them as individual notes to hit, and don’t be afraid to connect deeper with the song. I see a lot of potential in you!

Your enthusiasm was a pleasure to watch, but there was a few issues with pitch so take that into consideration in the future.

JOHNNY AU
HELLO! ASIA EDITOR

A good effort on a very difficult track.

 

JEFF BENJAMIN
FUSE FEATURES EDITOR

You have a very unique voice and you did well with this song. Sometimes it felt like you needed a little more breath support, but you definitely have some stand-out vocals. I see a lot of potential for you!

TARMAR HERMAN
BILLBOARD CONTRIBUTOR

The richness of your voice was hurt a bit by your breathing, but an overall enjoyable cover.

 

JEFF BENJAMIN
FUSE FEATURES EDITOR

I love your voice! You have a distinct tone and it definitely has this undeniable richness to it. I don’t know if this was the best song choice for you (sometimes I felt like you were holding back), but I really enjoyed not only your vocals but your stage presence and how you were clearly invested in the performance. I’d love to see more from you!

 

JOHNNY AU
HELLO! ASIA EDITOR

A fine performance – you selected a song that was more in touch with your vocals. A little more stage presence in future but overall a good effort!

JEFF BENJAMIN
FUSE FEATURES EDITOR

This was a very cute performance! Even though it was in English, I appreciated how you included a little Korean in there and K-pop references. At times it felt like you played a little too much to the camera, but I think it ultimately worked to your advantage since you never looked bored or unsure of yourself.

 

JOHNNY AU
HELLO! ASIA EDITOR

Very nice how you *ahem* added Day6 and GOT7 into the song. Very bright and bubbly performance – you definitely have pizzazz and presence.

JOHNNY AU
HELLO! ASIA EDITOR

You have such a strong and powerful voice. This track is not easy to perform – most Ailee tracks are technically very difficult – but you pulled it off. Would love to hear you over more professional recording equipment to bring out your amazing vocals. One of the best natural performances I’ve seen in this competition. Well done!

 

JEFF BENJAMIN
FUSE FEATURES EDITOR

The build-up was really, really nice, but at times it felt like you struggled through the belts and high notes. It got a bit rocky during those moments on the chorus and bridge, which resulted in you not totally staying on beat or not ending the note as strong as you could. You definitely have pipes and I enjoyed this performance, but there are a few bits to clean up. Lots of potential!

 

TAMAR HERMAN
BILLBOARD CONTRIBUTOR

You have great vocals, but were trying to extend yourself a bit too much.

JEFF BENJAMIN
FUSE FEATURES EDITOR

I enjoyed that you filmed your own music video to accompany this and I think it helped you stand out among other singers. But if this is a submission for Singing, I did feel the vocals were lacking a little bit and were weak at times. There’s a lot of personality in you and your vocals, they might just need to be honed in a little bit. Big thumbs up for creativity and going out of the box though.

 

JOHNNY AU
HELLO! ASIA EDITOR

Thank you for taking the time to shoot an actual music video! I’m really impressed with your dancing abilities and your vocal talents. Thanks for putting together a great package!
