Audition[edit | edit source]
Cody auditioned in Phoenix. He sang "Wonderful World" by James Morrison. It's unknown how the judges voted, but at least three of them voted "yes", sending him to the next round.
Hollywood Round[edit | edit source]
He was not shown much during the Hollywood Round, but did manage to make it to the final day. He was placed in a holding room with Nick Mitchell, Ann Marie Boskovich, Ju'Not Joyner, Tatiana Del Toro, Matt Breitzke, Kris Allen, Felicia Barton and T.K. Hash. The judges then revealed that everyone in the group had advanced. At the judges' mansion, they requested a sing-off between him and Alex Wagner-Trugman to determine who would make the Top 36. Cody sang "Love Remains the Same" by Gavin Rossdale. After a couple of minutes, the judges revealed that Alex would be advancing and Cody would be eliminated.
