Two Huffington Post bloggers are calling him "the cutest contestant ever."
Jaimie Etkin and Chelsey Etkin posted the following today about Belew's performance.
"Cody is absolutely adorable and energetic and awesome, and his dad looks like Colonel Sanders, which is also awesome. Cody wins for our favorite quote of Season 3 so far when he tells us, 'I do believe in a past life, I was an elderly black woman.' Cody, stop it. You're perfect. Never change."
Jaimie: "He wins. Done. It's over."
Chelsey: "Cody, you are my new BFF."
To be perfectly honest, we loved Cody so much after his video package that we probably would have been cheering for him regardless, but his voice, while not the strongest, was still great and we're very happy. Cody gives a very energetic performance, and turns his back at the end in disappointment when he thinks that no one has pressed their button. But wait! Cee Lo did at the last second -- and Cody doesn't realize! And then he realizes! And freaks out! And hugs Cee Lo! And keeps swearing and getting bleeped! AND IT'S THE BEST.
Jaimie: "CODY. I AM JUST IN LOVE WITH YOU."
Chelsey: "Ohhhhh my god. Obsessed. Obsessed. I am ecstatic. Best ever."
And just when we thought it couldn't get better, Cody tells Cee Lo how he likes to entertain the crowd with a little "bam bam" as he shakes his hips. THIS GUY. It's too much. And Team Cee Lo is now complete in the best way possible.
Jaimie: "All is right in the world now."
