What's the best way to impress the judges?
Voice Instructor Jennifer Rutherford explains the importance of being yourself in the audition.
Host: What's the best way to impress the judges?
Jennifer Rutherford: You have to careful here because you really have to be yourself, you dont want to be some blowhard that then falls short in the judges eyes, then you will be running off with your tail between your legs. You better make sure that you are just wow. If you are going to be that kind of a person that is going to say I am so great, you better be really wow, otherwise just be confidently humble that would be my advice.
