Eight finalists were chosen over eight weeks, while the overall winner was selected by Blue and immergent Records to be personally produced in Blue’s Revolver Studios.
The first sponsored WebCeleb, and overall winner of the Code Blue contest was Pete Hopkins with his song “I Won’t Cry” (http://www.webceleb.com/#/song/531/).
