She has been serving killer vocals and polished performances like they were going out of fashion.
And it looks like the British public has finally warmed to Saara Aalto. Our Finnish snow queen has made it through to week four of the live shows of X Factor UK, without falling into the sing-off! Yaasss.
After a surprise performance of “Year 3000” with Busted at the beginning of the show, and appearances by Shawn Mendes and John Legend, the serious business began. The tension was unbearable. The top seven acts were announced, and Saara was amongst them for the first time.

It seems that her shamazing take on Björk’s “It’s Oh So Quiet” last night (which the judges adored) was enough to win the hearts of the British public. Relive those glorious few minutes below.
Saara Aalto – It’s Oh So Quiet
Before the results were announced, the judges were asked to name the act who they felt was the most improved. Both Simon and Louis chose Saara. A good omen perhaps? Combined with the fact that there was no mention of Saara’s nationality and the standing ovation she recieved from the judges, this may have nudged the British public in the right direction. Such relief!
Before the show, Saara shared a photo of herself being beautified in anticipation of tonight’s result.

Saara’s fanbase has grown since her time on the show, and now includes Duncan James and Piers Morgan. However, her most loyal fan remains the same. Just how cute is Lilli? Could we see her on stage next week?
So, what do you think about the X Factor result — did you think Saara was going to go? What does she have to do to survive again? Let us know in the comments section below!
