The X Factor USA 2012: Cece Frey Shouts Her Way Through “Lady Marmalade”
Cece Frey can’t figure out what’s going wrong each week on The X Factor as she finds herself in the bottom two far too often in her opinion. I’m pretty sure the problem started the moment she stepped on stage at auditions. Cece wanted to stir up trouble as she proved that she has what it takes to be the winner of The X Factor, but she came off as an annoying, egotistical, backstabbing biotch.
Ever since the auditions Cece has struggled to be “likable” but the problem is she comes off as fake, even when she is trying to show a “tender” side each week. Truth be told- being unlikable isn’t going to kill your chances at winning if you have the talent to back it up. Unfortunately Cece does not.
Demi Lovato always says that no one wants the prize as much as Cece, but it only appears that way because she is the underdog so she has to fight the hardest. Tonight was suppose to be her big “comeback” with “Lady Marmalade,” but it had disaster written all over it.

The set looked just like a cheesy rip-off of the video from Lil Kim, Christina Aguilera, Mya and Pink. And even Cece’s outfit was a discount version of that in the video. Her vocals were awful to listen to as well because she has no idea how to control a song. Instead of letting her voice sing the song and crescendo into the louder, powerful notes, she competes with the instruments and shouts over top. The biggest problem with shouting, not singing, is it’s even harder to stay in pitch. At this point in the competition it’s beyond evident that Cece is the weakest link.
The judges had mixed reactions to Cece’s imitation performance.
- L.A. Reid: You’re going down, but you’re going down fighting. If I’m to be honest. I hate that I’m going to say this, but I enjoyed that circus.
- Britney Spears: I feel like this week has been a tough week, but everyone has stepped it up.
- Simon Cowell: No one can say you’re a trier. The problem with that performance is I felt like I ate 62 slices of chocolate cake. There was too much going on, too much distracting.. my advice tonight is pack a suitcase.
- Demi Lovato: I saw that fire in your eyes that I saw at the beginning. I thought you came out swinging.
Unreality Rating: 4/10. Unoriginal. Unflattering. I’ve been over Cece for weeks. I’m not sure really who continues to vote for Cece, unless it’s trolls who enjoy watching this hot mess each week.
