She narrowly escaped another elimination on The X Factor UK. Now Finnish star Saara Aalto has opened up to Piers Morgan about her second time being in the bottom three.
Making an appearance on Good Morning Britain, Saara shared her Motown week deadlock experience and told host Piers just what she thought of controversial rapper Honey G.
Piers outed himself as a Saara fanboy, gushing that “You might be the single most famous singer that Finland has ever produced.” But Saara took his compliment well, saying she wasn’t actually sure if she was a big deal in Finland yet.
When asked what it was like being in the bottom three while novelty rapper Honey G was sailing through, Saara was diplomatic. She said that she didn’t know enough about rap to rate the hip-hopper.
But Piers wasn’t having it, asserting that “I’ve listened to Honey G and you, and you’re ten times better than she is.”
Saara was looking on the bright side. She said that she was grateful that viewer votes had kept her from going home, after the judge’s deadlock. “Gradually people are starting to know me and I’m so happy, I’m so grateful.”
Saara will have another chance to win over more of the Great British public with her performance on the upcoming diva week. And we know she can turn on the diva!
