Saara Aalto

She’s busy competing on the high-profile X Factor UK, having sung her way out of the bottom two for two consecutive weeks.

But on Wednesday our favourite Disney princess Saara Aalto made it clear that, despite her high-profile commitment on ITV, she’s still interested in singing at Eurovision one day.

The revelation came on Twitter, shortly after Saara posted an adorable picture of herself waving the Union Jack and wearing a red, white and blue winter hat ahead of a day out on the River Thames.

Saara, who loves interacting with her fans, responded to a question from @helloitsbobs who asked: “Are you still interested in Eurovision?”

A mere hour later, we got the answer:

“Oh yes,” she said. Let us say, OH HELL YES!

Saara’s journey on the UK X Factor is being followed closely in the Finnish media, suggesting that her appearance in Britain is having a huge impact on her profile at home. That, coupled with a good song, could pave her way to represent Finland in the future.

As all you diehard Eurovision fans know, Saara has already attempted to sing for Finland at Eurovision on two occasions.

In 2011 she entered Finland’s national selection with “Blessed with love” and last year she competed with the track “No Fear”. She finished as runner-up both times (though she did win the televote in 2016).

The earliest Saara could compete for Finland would be at Eurovision 2018.

Finland’s YLE closed the submission period for UMK — their 2017 selection — on 5 September, just a few days after Nicole Scherzinger’s ass wanted to clap for Saara’s audition.

Let’s just hope we don’t have to wait five more years, like between her previous two attempts.

Multi-lingual realness

The delightful question-and-answer session turned into Saara showing her knack for languages, speaking French, Spanish, Dutch and even Chinese.

She wasn’t just mimicking in the Let It Go video, which saw her nailing the lyrics in 15 languages.

Would you like Saara to take part in the Eurovision? Do you think that her rising status in Finland could help her secure the gig? And how much are you liking her in her X Factor journey? Share your thoughts in the comments section below!

I find her adorable, and I have a very high standard for adorableness.

Robin Packalen would be my first choice for Finland, but I don’t think he’d consider the contest, so I’d be fine with Saara Aalto or Anna Abreu.

Finland needs her. None of our big talents are interested in taking part in UMK and ESC.

Well she can say bye to XFactor Now. The disdain the British have for Eurovision is insane.

Yes, you’re right. I can understand what she’s saying, but there’s something missing.
