The more I think about it, the more I realize that Theo Tams is in a league of his own. Not only did he give a spectacular performance during his Top 20 showcase, but also he emerged as an articulate, genuine and passionate artist.
However, more so than any other contestant, he displayed stellar musical talent and confirmed this fact by admitting that he never pursued any formal training in piano. Really? Could have fooled me. He manoeuvers the keys with finesse and musicality, validating my personal conviction that he is an inherently gifted musician.
Vocally, his voice is strong – extremely potent; however, he has yet to master the art of sustaining his vocal sound through a consistently circular mouth formation. Hopefully, this technical glitch will correct itself over the next few weeks. That horizontal mouth position is making me very nervous, as it puts undue strain on his vocal cords.
Additionally, he needs to relax his shoulders when playing the piano; his hunched posture contributes negative factors to his overall vocal production and diminishes the full effect of the diaphragmatic breathing process.
However, given all of this, he is a star and will keep the other competitors on their toes throughout the rest of this competition.
