How to say compliments

I have a project where I have to compliment everyone in my class. (For a speech class) can I have some help please. :)
I would like to know the following, but I don't need them all:
Your hair is very pretty
You're the greatest teacher
You have a lot of confidence
You are very funny
You are that 10% (this one is an inside joke with a friend of mine)
You are very smart
Thanks for being nice to me
You are a great basketball player
You're personality shines
You are a great singer and actor
You are an overall great person
Thanks for coming
(ok I also have one more question in a sentence could I replace you with the person's name?)
감사합니다!

    머리 예쁘다. 어디서 했어?(your hair is very pretty, where did you do it?)
    머리 예쁘다. 머리스타일 죽이는데(slang)

    You're the greatest teacher
    정말 멋진 선생님이다.

    You have a lot of confidence
    자신감이 넘쳐보여.

    You are very funny
    너 진짜 재미있어.

    You are that 10% (this one is an inside joke with a friend of mine)
    I’m sorry that I can’t understand its meaning.ㅠㅜ)

    You are very smart
    너 /정말/ 똑똑하구나. 너 /진짜/ 똑똑하다

    Thanks for being nice to me
    나에게 잘해줘서 고마워.

    You are a great basketball player
    너 정말 농구 잘하더라.

    You are a great singer and actor

    You are an overall great person
    너는 전체적으로 정말 괜찮은 사람이야.

    Thanks for coming
    와줘서 고마워! (I’ve never heard this kind of sentence in Korea, just you can say“왔어?”)

    I hope it would help you.. ^^

    Your hair is very pretty 머리가 아주 예뻐요.
    You're the greatest teacher. 선생님은 정말 좋으신 분이에요. (You should respect your teacher!)
    You have a lot of confidence 자신감이 넘치시는군요.
    You are very funny 정말 재미있는 분이세요.
    You are that 10% (this one is an inside joke with a friend of mine)
    !!!! You shouldn't use "You are that 10%" - 텐프로 literally pronounced, meaning very beautiful and gorgeous but usually not for an ordinary woman but for a woman working for a bar or prostitution. I guess your friend doesn't know the exact meaning of the '텐프로' or '10%'. It literal meaning you are in the 10% of rank.
    You are very smart 정말 똑똑하세요.
    Thanks for being nice to me 잘해주셔서 감사합니다./친절하게 대해 주셔서 감사합니다.
    You are a great basketball player 정말 훌륭한 야구선수 시군요.
    You're personality shines 인격이 뛰어나시군요./인격이 돋보이세요./인격이 빼어나시다고 들었습니다(I heard you are ....)
    You are a great singer and actor 정말 훌륭한 가수이자 배우세요.
    You are an overall great person 모든면에서 훌륭하세요.
    Thanks for coming 와주셔서 감사드립니다./자리를 함께 해 주셔서 감사드립니다.
    (ok I also have one more question in a sentence could I replace you with the person's name?)
    - Every 'you' can be replaced with a person's name but..We don't actually call the person's name directly without :씨-

    조라씨, 와주셔서 감사드립니다.
    조라씨, 대단한 가수시면서 배우시라고 들었습니다.

    or
    you should use the person's title with his/her family name but different way from yours : family name + 선생님
    김선생님, 대단한~
