Krystle Cruz from "The Next: Fame Is at Your Doorstep" is representing Los Angeles as one of the six semi-finalists in The CW reality singing competition series. Her mentor is Nelly.

Krystle Cruz began singing at the tender age of 3 and started performing at 9. The natural born performer has been influenced by artists such as Christina Aguilera, Jojo, Etta James and Beyoncé.

Cruz also happens to be a gifted dancer. She started dancing at 13 and joined the San Marcos High School dance team as a freshman and became the captain of her team the following year. She continued training in Hip Hop under Erik Saradpon and Phillip Geniza for five years and joined their all-female team, Hi-Fidelity, and their co-ed team, Mass Appeal, under the umbrella of EK Entertainment & Talent Company (EKetc).

In 2008 Cruz decided to focus on her music. She was soon discovered on YouTube by a prominent producer at a Japanese label, Avex Entertainment. She flew to Japan and trained under international industry professionals for three months. In 2010 she performed around the country and released her debut record, entitled "Underneath Me," which is a true example of Krystle's musical tastes: relatable lyrics over Pop/Soul and R&B melodies incorporated with dance beats. She subsequently gained a following online with over a million views on her YouTube channel. She has also been a featured artist on MYX TV, Time Warner Cable (Orange County) and even had the opportunity to sing "God Bless America" at the Dodgers game in Los Angeles for Filipino Heritage Night.

Krystle is currently the lead vocalist for California State University San Marcos' Jazz Ensemble.
