Same here! My knees shake and my palms get sweaty! I like to preform and have many times but I still get crazy nervous when I'm on stage!. What I've learnt to do is instead of looking at the audience ( in the beginning anyway) I look straight ahead over their heads and avoid eye contact, that lets me breathe a little easier!. I also imagine what I'm going to be doing after the performance, you know like- I sang this song in front of a crowd and I told myself, after this I get to sit down, take a drink of water and enjoy the rest of the show!.!.!.yadayadayada!.!.!.The best technique is to convince yourself you are an entire different person, especially good if you're acting!. I just imagine I'm some other girl on stage and I'm acting this all out!.

good luck, I don't think you can ever totally get rid of the stage fright- i never will, but you can definitely learn how to control and deal with it!. :)Www@QuestionHome@Com

There has been too much about connecting to your audience!. It is misunderstood!.
Concentrate on the music both in practice and performance!.
Think of the music, what you are saying, and what you can do to make it more beautiful or more meaningful!.
If you are thinking only music, you will not be nervous!.
It takes a little time to make this adjustment, but it is worth the results!. You will definitely be a better singer!.
Your music will connect you to the audience!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

It takes a little to wrap your head around, but if you can get it your head that while you are in front of the audience, you are the most important person in the room!. They are there to hear what you have to say, or sing!. Your self-confidence will grow and you will no longer be as nervous in front of a crowd!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

I think after reaching to the stage you should think that there is nobody in front of you!. You are all alone!. You have the mike and want to sing the song only for you not for anyone else!. You should think that I am singing this song to only enjoy myself and nothing else!. Take a deep breath and sing it only for you feeling that there is no one else!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Much easier said than done, but you just have to do it one day and face your fear!. That's the only way to REALLY get over it!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
