X Factor Season 2 finalist CeCe Frey is built up and then stripped down every week. The 21-year-old postal service worker can wow the audience with a bold production number, but her strength is really found in pared-down ballads. Wipe the leopard-print face paint off and you’ve got a 2012’s answer to Nico.

As the contestants ready themselves to “Give Thanks” on November 21, 2012, during their live performances, CeCe shared her anxiety with her Twitter followers. “Getting close to show time,” she tweeted. “I'm really excited, and nervous. I'm sharing a part of me that I NEVER share. It's scary, but I'm READY.”

We can’t wait to see this girl pour even more of her heart and soul onto the stage!
