I have a audition for an Extended Diploma in Music Performance soon. I need 2 contrasting songs (so one slow and one faster for example). I've chosen this song for one of them (link below), I was thinking this song is on the faster side but I'm not 100% sure. Help/advice would be really appreciated. Thank you

From an uneducated view of your diploma requirements, this song doesnt scream 'fast' to me, its kinda mellow , average tempo, the beat isnt excessively quick for me - maybe it'll be fine for your purpose but it seems more like a medium tempo I feel :dontknow:

it certainly sounds good tho and has a nice vibe

I would class this as a moderate tempo, which you could sing/play a little bit faster or slower than the original depending on what category you wanted to put it in. I would be careful about just taking 'contrasting' to mean 'contrasting tempo', though. Ideally, your two songs should be different in terms of mood, key, tempo and style. If you're singing (which I assume you are), your two songs should ideally show off the lower and higher ends of your vocal range, your ability to use different techniques (e.g. sustained notes vs. more movement, belting vs. quiet, vibrato vs. none) and, crucially, your ability to communicate different emotions, scenarios or characters (whether that's an actual character, as in a song from a musical, or just the 'poetic I' of the text).
