Eleanor Rosavelt said "We must do the things we cannot do!." !.!.!.or something like that!.
I get excited when I sing in front of a crowd!. But just before I do, I get so nervous and shake!. So I just wait, swallow, hum (a small voice warm-up that helps when your nervous, so your voice doesnt crack on the first note), and drink lots of water!. If you can't see the audience when you get on stage, you have nothing to worry about!. Hakuna Matata! Good Luck!! HAPPY 2009!!Www@QuestionHome@Com

Don't drink milk before you perform! it gums up in your throat and makes it hard to sing!.!.!.if you do!.!.!.eat some potatoe chips, they take that gumminess out!. but stage fright!? phew thats a toughy!. You can't usually just get rid of it!. Your gonna have to just do it!. Try not too look too much at the audience until you get into the song and get comfortable!. Look over their heads!.!.!.it looks like your looking at them, but your not!. I've sang infront of people many!.!.!.MANY times!. I still get stage firght!.!.!.just get up there and do it!. You shake and occasionally feel like you wanna throw up, but turn that nervousness into excitement!.!.!.thats all i got!Www@QuestionHome@Com

This is probably unconventional, but what works for me is reminding myself how crappily I'll perform if I let my nerves control me!. Then I just get into 'the zone' in my head and do the best I can!.

Remember, everyone in the audience is well-disposed towards you!. They want you to do well!.

Good luck!Www@QuestionHome@Com

I usually think to myself "These people came to watch my talent, so lets give them a great show!"
It's kinda big-headed, but it works!. You get lots of confidence too!.
