The new X Factor press shots just came out and besides some really interesting clothing choices for some of the contestants, the major thing we noticed was that CeCe Frey is now blonde. Woah! The 21-year-old singer got major flak for her leopard-print face paint (and later, leg paint...) and cocky attitude.

During her heart to heart with mentor Demi Lovato, CeCe seemed to have a change of heart, pledging to scale back her sass and focus on being present in a less douchey sort of way. Apparently, that change of heart came with a change of tress tone. What do you think? Is CeCe gonna go platinum with her new locks, or were the darker strands a bolder look for the diva?
