Last night fan favorite and our Queen, CeCe Frey, was eliminated from The X Factor USA. After hearing the results, CeCe gave an inspiring message to all of her many Warriors out there! The sexy singer said the following:
"I'm very proud of everything I've done on this show. I'm ready to leave it with this entire platform that I have acquired for myself. I hope I taught everyone at home that you need to love who you are because the more you love who you are. The less you need anybody else to."
What an awesome and inspiring message to leave her many fans! I don't know about you, but I am proud to be a Warrior!

RollingStone did an awesome article on The X Factor USA and mostly discussed CeCe! Check out the article below!
Love her or loathe her, CeCe Frey is still going strong on The X Factor. Some speculate it's because spoiler site Vote for the Worst has been encouraging its readers to jam the phone lines in her favor. But we think she's actually won people over – especially considering VFTW initially (and blasphemously, we might add) picked Lyric 145 as its "fave." That means Miss CeCe kept herself afloat for at least three rounds of eliminations.
But we digress. With yet another double elimination looming one week before the semifinals, it could prove to be CeCe's last stand. But it seems like the judges have given up on gunning for her, instead setting their sights on other acts. (We're looking at you, Fifth Harmony, Diamond White and, surprisingly, Tate Stevens.)
It was a drawn-out night, with each of the top six contestants performing two songs: an acoustic version of a hit single chosen by their respective mentor and a track (and clothes and staging) picked by viewers through an online Pepsi plug, er, we mean poll.
For CeCe, it was a one-two contemporary punch of a stripped-down, cabaret rendition of Lady Gaga's "Edge of Glory" and Katy Perry's "Part of Me," respectively. She sounded a little shaky and pitchy on both, but she was as entertaining as always. She's especially fascinating to watch during uptempo pop tracks like "Part of Me," during which she spit attitude like a true diva. But we can't help but think Vote for the Worst had a hand in choosing her outfit, a hot mess of denim, leopard print and Crayola colors. If she hadn't bathed for a few days, she would have been a dead ringer for Ke$ha.
Also stealing the spotlight, as usual, was Carly Rose Sonenclar, who sat atop the leaderboard last week. And we're sure she'll find herself at the summit yet again this week, based solely on the fact she sang Justin Bieber's "As Long as You Love Me." We only wish the girl would loosen up. Why none of the judges tell her to smile instead of making stank face all the time is beyond us. She did it all through the viewers' choice, Beyoncé's "If I Were a Boy," too. If you ask us, it detracts from her flawless vocals and could prove to be her Achilles heel in the finals. Time to lighten up, girl! (You know we love you.)
On the flip side, the judges weren't so enamored with Stevens. Part of the problem was that he performed his second Bon Jovi song of the season, a stripped-down version of "Livin' on a
Prayer," which the judges softly slammed. As Demi Lovato noted, it was "a little boring" since he's "not doing much evolving as an artist." His second song, Garth Brooks' "If Tomorrow Never Comes," fared slightly better, but only because it was within his country wheelhouse. After third-placer Vino Alan got thrown under the elimination bus last week, Tate must be sweating bullets right about now.
Indeed, he’d better watch his back, as boy band Emblem3 could well steal his second place spot on the leaderboard. Despite some blasé remarks from Demi, who admittedly has a crush on one of the guys, they pretty much garnered rave reviews from the judges for their renditions of Bruno Mars' "Just the Way You Are" and the Eighties new wave cult classic "Forever Young," which One Direction covered, as the girls in the audience shrieked their heads off.
Getting lost in the shuffle were Diamond White and Fifth Harmony, who America pranked by choosing a song by mentor Simon Cowell's nemesis, Demi. While neither act was necessarily bad, they just didn't stand out, which could prove to be problematic on elimination night.

CeCe Frey gave a new interview with Wet Paint to discuss her best friends leaving, her determination, and her X Factor comeback!
What worked last week when you jumped from #12 to #5?
Honestly, I don't know what I did that made me jump so much. I still am in shock because of it. I don't want to say this is a crazy comeback for me, because I'm sure the moment I say it is when I get kicked off this freaking thing. I think I poured my heart and soul into my thing last week and I let America see my heart on stage. I'm going to give it that shot again this week, and maybe take it to a whole other level.
Did you celebrate last week?
Honestly, after that, I wanted to go out and celebrate a bit in the ways that a 21-year-old can celebrate. But we went right to work. We went into figuring out what we're going to do to stay in this #5 spot. I think even go up some — that would be cool! So I went right to work, because I can celebrate later, and whenever I win. But right now is all about work and not getting distracted.
Is it easy to get distracted?
I always try to keep an optimistic attitude. It's been hard to keep that the past couple weeks, because I've always been in the bottom. Especially when the judges gave me the comments Wednesday, I thought for sure I would be in the bottom two again, and probably go home. It was a double elimination. I thought, There is no way in hell I'm going to stay. When I got #5, I couldn't believe it. So, I'm trying to remain really positive because if I let myself feel defeat, that's when my drive will leave. I'm staying very optimistic and driven to win this thing.
Are you relaxing after making the Top 5 last week?
There is absolutely no room to relax, ever. Even if I win this thing, there is no room to relax. I'll be happy, but won't be satisfied. I will always be hungry to work and keep climbing. The work in this industry is never work. If anybody can handle it, it's me.
How adamant are you about picking your song choice?
Obviously, I do my best to pick my own songs. But there are always people — 100 people have different opinions on this show that I should be doing something different. So I try to put as much of a fight as I can to keep my song choices. Maybe if the judges didn't like it last week, that was the song I wanted to really do, and felt. This week is the same. I think that's the common denominator.
What's the most emotional part of the process?
Definitely saying goodbye to people. Then, the fear of saying goodbye if I'm the one that has to leave. Last week, my best friend Jennel got left. My other best friend Lyric, and roommate, left. That sucks, to have to say goodbye to someone every week. It sucks waking up the next morning, no matter how happy you are, to an emptier house. That's very emotional. It's very hard.
What else do you have to say for yourself?
When I was little, I had an imaginary pet eagle named Mayahute. I was young, like 6 or 7.

FOX's "The X Factor" had another ratings bump! The Thursday results episode was up 4% compared to the episode last week! The show earned a 2.4 ratings/share in the important 18-49 segment. This is up from a 2.3 last thursday. The show also earned 7.23 million viewers!
Could the power of CeCe and her Warriors have something to do with this!!! Keep watching X Factor so the ratings will keep going up up up!
RollingStone posted about X Factor on their website and they discussed CeCe Frey's BIG comeback on the show last night! Here is what they had to say:
"That said, CeCe seemed like a lost cause after winding up in the same position last week, but landing the coveted pimp spot last night gave her a seven spot bump up the leaderboard. She's now in fifth – fifth! – place among the top 10. The puppetmasters have worked their magic once again."

They would make such a cute couple!
CeCe Frey tweeted her fans/Warriors about her exciting night on the X Factor!
"And it's all because of YOUR VOTES! I am floored by this accomplishment. I love you all so much... I just can't even express my gratitude.."
"What do you think... Would CeCe Frey be a good addition to Fifth Harmony?"
What a super cute picture!
CeCe Frey looked absolutely on FOX's "The X Factor" tonight in a very revealing dress! It reminds me of something Britney Spears or Jennifer Lopez would wear back in the day!
Keep up the good work CeCe!
CeCe Frey tweeted following the results episode of The X Factor tonight! The Warrior princess tweeted:
"What the hell just happened....."
I wonder if she was referring to herself moving from #12 to #5 on the leaderboard or her best friend Jennel being eliminated.
Congrats CeCe! You deserve all the adoration you received from your Warriors tonight!
A huge congratulation goes to CeCe and all of the Warriors out there! We made a huge difference in the number of votes CeCe received this week! Last week CeCe came in on the X Factor leaderboard at #12. This week she moved up 7 spots to #5! What an amazing accomplishment after CeCe had to sing for safety twice in a row! Way to show how powerful and passionate we are about CeCe!
