X Factor Season 2 finalist CeCe Frey barely evaded elimination this week, but the 21-year-old singer from Decatur, IL, fought tooth-and-nail to stay in the game. After her November 21, 2012 performance, Wetpaint Entertainment go the chance to ask CeCe about what she’s thankful for — and she revealed more about her darling boyfriend Ryan Mueller.

What are you thankful for?
I’m crazy thankful for my family.  It might sound kind of corny, but I’m so thankful for this opportunity. I come from nothing, I come from nowhere and for me to be doing this and being on this show and being able to live out my dream, is more than I could ever hoped for. I’m thrilled every day no matter how stressful this gets. I just wake up every day and think, “I can’t believe how amazing my life is.”

Who do you miss the most at home?
I really miss my family so much and to have them here was just like icing on the cake.  

What do you think your boyfriend will say about your performance tonight?
He is very supportive of me. I’m always thankful for him and for that because I know a lot of guys might not be able to handle all of this. So, he has been an incredible support and he is very well trained! He knows all of the right things to say. I’m sure sometimes he means them! He is a good sport and that’s all you could hope for.
