X Factor USA's CeCe Frey Admits She 'Knew She Was Never Going To Win'

8 December 2012

X Factor USA reject CeCe Frey was known for her feisty attitude and leopard print facial art on the show. However, despite bringing something different to the competition, CeCe has admitted that she 'knew she was never going to win'.

This week saw CeCe get booted off, whilst mentor Demi Lovato broke down on stage by her side, but the hopeful is adamant that she's going to 'win' after the show instead of on it.

"When Adam Lambert was on ['Idol'], I said, 'Now that's the kind of dude that needs to win one of these shows,' " Frey told MTV News yesterday (December 7).

"But the thing is, performers like me and Adam Lambert and Diamond White and Lyric 145, we're not the kind of artists that win these things. We're the kind of artist that win afterwards — or I hope so, anyway — and I'm going to work my butt off to get there."

As defiant as ever, Frey was adamant she didn't come into this competition expecting to win. "You hope for that, but I pretty much knew," she said of her chances.

"I mean, I had leopard print on my face, for Christ's sake! I pretty much knew that I wasn't that cookie-cutter girl that you pick to win one of these things, but I knew that I was going to use this and run with it."

As hosts Khloe Kardashian Odom and Mario Lopez announced her departure from the show, Demi said: "I have grown so close to you, I’m just so proud of you."

Comforting Demi, who wore the same leopard print face make-up as her, CeCe said: "it's ok, it's ok."

Tweeting after her elimination, CeCe wrote: "Head up, heart full. This is ONLY the beginning #CeCeTribe."

Demi posted: "Really, really gonna miss CeCe though.. Real talk. This girl was not only a star but a beautiful person inside and out. #reallybummed", before simply adding: "I ❤ you CeCe. @CeCeMissXtotheO"

Now CeCe's out of the competition, who do you think is going to win?
