The Voice: Cody Belew soars with 'Jolene' in Knockout Round

Posted By on Tue, Oct 30, 2012 at 8:54 AM

Beebe native Cody Belew triumphed over his fellow Team CeeLo member Avery Wilson last night on NBC's "The Voice." Wilson opted for Chris Brown's "Yeah 3X" while Belew took on Dolly Parton's classic "Jolene."

Wilson showed off some suave dance moves and is a strong singer, but Belew just absolutely killed it, showing off his serious singing chops. The judges all pointed to the fact that the show is called "The Voice" and that Wilson's dancing seemed like a bit of a distraction.

The judges were unanimous in their assessments. "You're kinda shining through as a unique artist and I think you won this," Adam Levine said to Belew.

Blake Shelton was likewise impressed. "That was the best I've heard you sing so far," he said.

But the only opinion that mattered last night was CeeLo Green's "Cody, it takes a brave man to sing 'Jolene,' I thought you did a great performance today," he said, before naming Belew the winner.
