If you are anything like us, you’ve been waiting with bated breath for news about CeCe Frey like it’s your job (oh wait, it is our job). The be-face-dazzled X Factor (former) contestant made quite the impression on us from the first moment we saw her talking shit to fellow hopefuls backstage at auditions, to her final lone tear sliding down her gorgeous face.

Although some people may only remember her as the girl whose voice was questionably good enough for the show, we LHLAS (her. Her, guys. We love her like... you know the rest) forever. BFFL! Anyway, because we couldn’t be there to ring in the new year with our favorite platinum blondie, there’s a little thing called the Internet (and Photoshop, if you’re that kind of person) that will make you feel like you were there.

CeCe got ready for New Year’s Eve in true Cecefied style: with leopard print and sparkle. “New Years Eve is like prom for us almost grown ups,” the rising star tweeted.

As for her plans, CeCe tweeted

She spent the evening at Union Station with a special someone and definitely locked lips as the clock struck midnight. Looks like her boyfriend Ryan Mueller to us. CeCe tweeted "Happy New Year ---->2013 ----> life, love, success, happiness" along with the cute pic. Here’s to #2013YearoftheWarriors!
