Be in good voice. If you haven't sung in a while, you can't expect to go into an audition and perform well. Singing every day (or very close to it) is essential for keeping your voice healthy and strong.
Be prepared. Always give yourself plenty of time to learn your audition material; the day before just won't cut it. Go the extra mile and memorize your solo! Plan where you will breathe. Practice in front of people. Record yourself and listen.
Choose a song that suits you. Play up your strengths.
If you make a mistake while singing, don't stop! An audition is like a performance; just keep going, and don't let your face or body language reveal the fact that you've made a mistake.
Try everything that is asked of you. There is too much competition to leave something out.
Sing out (at an appropriate volume) so that you can be heard. Don't look down. Show the judges that you understand what you're singing about - be expressive!
Project confidence. Acting confident will help you feel more confident. Smile!
