American Idol 12- Contestant Preview #23- Cristabel Clack

Hope you’ve been enjoying the audition episodes. Here’s one you haven’t seen before… Cristabel Clack!

Cristabel currently fronts a christian band for her church. She’s married, and has at least one kid. All she sings on youtube are these terrible praise songs. They’re just super repetitive, and she ends up singing “King of Kings” for like 7 minutes over and over. It’s almost impossible to judge her talent from these songs, when she basically just does runs and repeats the same chorus over and over. I’m sure she’s good at singing praise songs, they’re just not great for showing off your skill with regards to the competition.

    My God. Still waiting for one decent contestant. 

  • Kesia Monteith

    What? Angie Miller and Jett Hermano wasn’t good enough?

    Idol’s going to break a record for monotonous contestants this year.

    Not my kind of contestant,lol

    Heh. Not really a recommendation. Wonder why they picked her? If the genre she would like to sing in is Terrible Praise Songs, I don’t know that Idol PTB has cleared too many of them, and since CCM is way out of my musical tastes, I’ll pass on this one. Is this another “chosen just to be eliminated” contestant?

    That’s what I’ve been saying ever since these spoilers leaked.

  • Alexandre Oliveira

    lol I’m looking foward seeing that girl Zoanette Johson I think

  • Jake W.

    yea, this season better pull some punches quick. This could possibly end up as the season with the worst talent ever.

  • fantoo1

    Have you been watching the auditions? There were a lot of great people last night.

  • fantoo1

    Really? I’m already liking the auditions better than last year, and last year ended up being a great season talent wise.

    It’s also hard to tell from poor quality YouTube videos. I wait until the show to judge them. For example, I wasn’t impressed with any of Lazaro’s YouTube videos, but he had a great audition. I say don’t judge a season based on two audition episodes, even though I thought last night was great :)

  • Jake W.

    Yea I think it is the worst so far. The judging is amazing IMO. In fact we have the best judging panel this show has ever had. Last year was amazing. I don’t think any season will compare to one like that. Last year, I loved nearly every contestant and the talent was insane.

    Kinda silly to judge the whole season based on two whole episodes IMO.

    All the great people who I have seen already cut before Top-40 – it’s what confuses me. But there is a lot of gospel and CCM. I don’t mind if it would be the gospel/CCM, I just won’t watch it – I have a last season and the chance to wait for the music from EVP for example.

  • Tracie Mitchell

    Cristabel has an AMAZING voice and all these videos prove to me that she actually uses her talents she is blessed with to praise GOD in her spare time. If you ask me that is a strong quality an IDOL should possess!

  • Amaya Jones

    I would love to go to this church tbh. Cristabel is great. I love her. I don’t know what kind of singer y’all are waiting for. Whitney Houston isn’t trying out. These kids are all great and they’re amateurs but that’s why they tried out. They want a chance at the big time. Anyway, so far I have seen a lot of variety and I think this season is going to be one of the best ones yet.

    CRISTABEL CLACK is a GREATTTT singer yall!!! yall are dumb if you think she sucks….her voice gives me the chills. And im with Tracie Mitchell on that one, the fact that she uses her talent that God have her, for His glory is absolutetly admiring!

  • Michelle
