See how O.C. singer fared on 'The Next'
Orange County singer-songwriter Angela Mukul performed Thursday on "The Next," the CW's singing competition series, but came up short in a fan vote to determine the winner of the Los Angeles round. Instead, singer Krystle Cruz was picked to advance to the semi-finals of the show next week..
That doesn't mean, however, that the 23-year-old from Anaheim and Yorba Linda is through on the show: An online fan vote will pick one more contestant from those who were runners up so far on the show so Mukul has a second chance to advance to the semi-finals next week.
We met Mukul a week ago at her parents' coffee shop in Anaheim and talked to her about a life spent pursuing the dream of singing and songwriting. The 2011 Cal State Fullerton graduate hopes that appearing on "The Next" will help her advance her career to the next level, win or lose.
On the show on Mukul sang Lady Gaga's "You And I," with help from professional mentor Gloria Estefan. Other mentors on the show included country star John Rich, hip-hop artist Nelly and pop star Joe Jonas.
To participate in the fan vote that will pick a seventh semi-finalist on the show go to Cwtv.com/thecw/thenextvoting. Voting is open through 9 a.m. Pacific time on Friday, Sept. 21.
