What’s your name? Cody, I’m 17 and I’m from a little town called Burnley in Lancashire My name is Cody Frost, I’m 17and I’m from Lancashire I’m live at home with my mum and my little sister Cody is the best sister ever! It’s a mad house Everyone is just so loud My dad still sees me as daddy’s little princess sometimes But like I really don’t look like a princess at the moment and I don’t think I ever will Cody, it’s lovely to meet you – Thank you You look amazing! – Thank you! How would you describe your look today? Uhm, failed punk – Failed punk? (laughing) I like to be different because that’s how you get your voice heard That’s how you can make a change as apposed to staying the same getting a job, having some kids That’s just boring like why would you want to do that? I’ve been looking into the coaches’ star signs a little bit because I’m a bit of an astrology nerd I’m a Capricorn and I found out that they pretty much mix with mine Particularly Paloma, because my best friend is a Cancer And so is Paloma And maybe our stars will allign This is by far the biggest thing I’ve done in my life I’ve been pushed down quite a lot when I was younger Now I’ve got the confidence to do it, so why not do it now? I think I’m ready for a stage this big I think you’re so cool! – Yeah, your style is fresh! Thank you – You look amazing What are you in to? Besides dressing fresh Really angry music Like what? – Like…you know, metal But you’re not singing metal, it’s quite emotional what you just sang You know it’s kind off – Emo! Yeah That’s one of the most emotional performances we’ve had so far Yeah, I feel so moved (mumbling) I mean, 90 seconds it’s really hard to get to know someone in that time But I feel like we really got to know you, quite quickly – Thank you And hopefully you’ll come on my team If you’re gonna start, start early Ok? I think we can carry on and get to know you better and make it so that you have the carreer that you want There’s a little bit of an 80’s vibe going on in the look Yes So there’s really only one place for you to go honey child I just thought I always go for misfits right Here I am And I love it. I was just sitting there and I really felt emotional listening to you And I felt like we really heard like your heart. and I feel like that’s really really special. And I hundred percent believe that you should be massive in the music industry cause that was so beautiful Paloma just used the word Misfit I’m the queen of misfits
Yeah that was a beautiful – Well you know I used to be a man right? No I’m joking I thought we were going to keep that a secret Yeah, there was a beautiful vulnerability and also the song choice because at first I wasn’t sure what you were singing I was like Ok, Abba A sort of Goth take on Abba It was kinda beautiful and brave I’m gonna go with Boy George I’m so happy! My last pairing is Cody Cody has like an ocean of vulnerability That was a big thing with Cody Cody was like a mini-me. The way she was dressed the makeup I like to be different because that’s how you get your voice heard That’s how you can make a change I feel like I understand her completely And Cody will be up against Heather Heather was very talented she has kind of quirky quality about her which I completely love You’re both pretty young. So you’re both fresh out of school what was that like? I didn’t really enjoy school I did a year of a-levels and got U’s on all of them – I’m still at school I’m doing four a levels at the moment which is really tough – We’ve got a brainy one, and one more like me We’re kind of like different ends of the spectrum. She does pretty make up and wears pretty dresses I feel like I look like a bad influence Should we have a little listen to your interpretation? Cody’s got massive potential I think she’s got something very unique about her she knows how to place things emotionally It’s quite scary singing against Cody When she sings I get goosebumps and I want to try and have the same effect that she does on Boy George It’s gonna be really hard It will literally be down to: Who do I believe? It’s gonna be that cold George that was amazing How are you feeling? It was beautiful. It was exactly what I thought it was gonna be But better, yeah it was beautiful Ok, Heather you brought so much emotion to that song and you made it effortless You brought me to tears it was amazing and I don’t cry at many things SEC Tax bills. But you know, you’re 17
And you have a massive future in front of you and I kind of just feel like this is gonna end well, whatever happens. But because I fought so hard to get Cody, you just remind me so much of myself when I was your age and so I’m going to take you through From the moment I heard Cody singing in the Blind Auditions, I knew she was unique I think she’s the real deal and everything that she’s done in this competition has only confirmed that As you can see I’m a little bit in love with Cody I’m gonna sing Another Brick in the Wall by Pink Floyd because it’s rebellious My biggest challenge with this song would probably be not to get too excited and scream I think Cody thinks of herself as being quite rebellious but I think underneath all that is a very sensitive compassionate person Once you kind of do that ‘Cody thing’ I don’t know what it is try to balance it because you know when you get angry it’s great But don’t lose that vulnerability I mean she’s clearly very creative She’s got this kind of artistic side to her And I think there’s so much more to come from her Everything hangs on this performance, so nothing’s certain Oh my god, it’s gonnabe tough Oh my god, oh my god We’re all kind of looking for someone who can be a real artist That can develop and grow and become something unique and uhm I think I’ve definitely found it in this person The last person that i’m taking through is Cody Team George is just like the Adams family, with bigger hair Team George is a cool team Cody is you know punky, powerhouse when she sings something beautiful happens The good thing about being on George’s team is that, not only is he a coach but he’s your friend. He’s so cool I wanna hang out with him all the time My family has been great They’re all so proud of me They are constantly watching my performances The cutest thing was when a little brother was singing it though That made me happy couldn’t ask for a better family Picking Boy George was an amazing decision because he’s just perfect for me I like Cody. I like her energy You know she talks 10 to the dozen It’s almost like she’s not concentrating Cody, come back in the room We’re just gonna call it Codyness But when she sings, something beautiful happens She just has this thing She’s just special
And if we knew why, we’d be we’d be churning them out George it’s decision time George who is getting your fast pass through to next week’s semi-final? Shhh Just wanna say you all did an amazing job, and for whoever doesn’t go through I hope the public will you know there’s been lots of comments online I hope they can turn it in to votes So that people vote for you. Definitely Tonight I’m going to be a gentleman there’s one lady so I’m going to take Cody through How are you feeling? – I’m alright When I saw you last night you were pretty upset Yeah It was the biggest performance I’ve ever done I was thinking, this is out of key This is out of time It was the pressure of the live show You were kind of out of your comfort zone It was kind of messy but you needed to experience that and I know it’s just going to make even stronger It was just an awful night I gave coded the Fast pass because I wasn’t gonna just give up on her I’m gonna take Cody through Cody is 18 years old. She hit a bum note in a show. Whatever It’s nice to know that he has faith in me I know what you’re capable of, that’s why you got through last night There’s lots of things that we need to get right It’s amazing to have Boy George as a coach My mom is a fan of Boy George and she bought me by Boy George records Thats her sister, best friend My whole family was really excited to see George We’re so proud. Obviously This week is game on because I want to get back in the place that I was before and just be confident with it I’m probably still gonna be nervous but like, I’m thinking about it now and hoping for the best There’s been tears There’s mascara running but This is your comeback performance ok? My mom says women live longer because they cry, so carry on crying ok I really want you to have an amazing performance next week And I want to see you go through to the final Ok? Give me a hug It was amazing I mean look how happy I look
I was watching you beside the stage – I’m the happiest person in Elstree And all surrounding areas I mean you nailed it. Amazing Paloma do you think she’s done enough to make it through to next week Has she? I mean like I’ll buy her album tomorrow I’ve been telling her that since the beginning I was upset because I really wanted her to be on my team and she still isn’t and I’m just such a big fan I’m gushing and I think it was amazing Well done Six artists remain but only two places are left in the final The public have spoken This is it In no particular order the next person going through to the final is: From Team Boy George it’s Cody! I’ve been missing my family and friends a lot I just missed that way of life so I went back home The first thing I did when I got home was a radio interview And that was really fun Is it good to be back home now? I missed it so much I went to the bar that I work at And I got a massive surprise when I turned up It was really lovely seeing my siblings, Jensen’s just turned 3 Can I have a kiss? I’ve never had a kiss of him Cody’s fantastic He just really, really missed me Cody rocks! She’s a giant They’re really cute Team Cody! Knowing that I’ve got so much support from up North It’s really lovely and it definitely spurs me on I wasn’t expecting that many people She’s wonderful We’re incredibly proud of her Cody can absolutely win Team Cody I’m really excited to just go on stage and do them proud Here we go, the public have spoken And also staying in the competition is:
It’s Kevin! Kevin congratulations So Lydia and Cody that does mean that you are out of the competition Cody can you sum up your time for us, on The Voice It’s been really long but it’s been amazing and worth it And George this isn’t the end of the road for Cody is it? No and she doesn’t have to sing the winner single cause she didn’t wanna do it anyway So we’re pleased about that Thank you George, you’ve both been absolutely fantastic Please make some noise one more time for Lydia and Cody!
