Last week, our nerves were all over the place when Saara Aalto was once again in the bottom three on X Factor UK, but this week she’s given us more of that snow fairy charm we love. For her diva week number, Saara performed Björk’s “It’s Oh So Quiet”, and took viewers on a journey into her own Wonderland.

After the dramatic deadlock save from the bottom three last week, Saara showed Britain what a diva is made of. From Helsinki to London via Iceland, the UMK veteran took us on a journey to Wonderland. Who needs an Alice when you have Saara Aalto?

Sshh, sshh… bring us that musical theatre realness, baby. The only one that didn’t join the party was the Mad Hatter. Feathers, flowers and sunglasses filled the stage and Saara’s voice gave it life. Her unique, crazy and over-the-top style made all the judges give Miss Aalto a standing ovation!

“Saara, what happened up there? Amazing! You are incredible, I’m glad you’re different — different is good. This was the best thing of the whole show!”, Louis Walsh said.

Nicole Scherzinger added, “That was the perfect song for you. It was bonkers, bizarre and bananas, and you know how much I love bananas!”

Simon Cowell was even more enthusiastic. “Saara, this was incredible, this is you. This is what we’ve been waiting for. You are a bit bonkers, and we love bonkers! You came back. It was like the Saara concert”. You heard Simon, Britain. This is renewal, this is drama!

Saara’s mentor Sharon Osbourne didn’t forget our snow princess’ name tonight— thank God — and considered her performance fantastic.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen “It’s Oh So Quiet” at The X Factor UK. Back in 2011 Kitty Brucknell was all about rocking the same tune — that time with an actual Mad Hatter. We may love Kitty, but Saara is our QWEEN!

Saara took to Twitter to thank her fans and followers. She said it had probably been the best night of her life, and that she’d dreamed of wearing an outfit like her giant pink sequinned dress since she was 15. This is why all your dreams are valid and can come true. Yaas!

If you are in the UK, you can either vote by phone, text or on the X Factor app. Voting will close during tomorrow night’s live results show.

The bottom two acts compete in a sing-off, with the judges choosing which act will stay and who will go. If the judges are tied in their decision, the previous public vote will once again decide the result.

There may be c lot more duties and responsibilities an internet developer might need to perform, which often is he
is working on. Web developers play with an extremely
crucial part in the economy today. While they need to have the ability to communicate effectively in order to
understand what’s needed to find the job done,
nearly all of their work is completed. Backend web developers use coding languages to be
sure all the features at the site really do the work.

This is my least favorite performance from her. It’s not bad, Simon’s comments are a bit over the top. Just because she is slightly different from the norm and has displayed a flicker of personality doesn’t mean she all-out “bonkers”. It just means she’s not an identikit pop wannabe that you can shape into the “perfect” teen idol. An actual human being, in other words. If you listen to just the audio of the performance its flaws are more noticeable, but I still hope she gets through. I haven’t seen any of the other contestants, though, so what do I… Read more »

She was shining on stage. Finally i felt the connection with her. Amazing performance. I think Ryan should go home tonight. He is not in the smae level as others.

(ATTENTION Wiwibloggs: Cristal Snow (UMK 2016, and Euroviisut 2008) has released a new song, which is better than his “Love Is Blind”. It also has amazing music video. The song is called Die Hard).

She was amazing! Loved everything about it. Hopefully we’ll see her next week too. At least now they know she can do big productions like these. But why the sour face, Nicole? It didn’t seem like what she said to Saara was genuine.

The teen girl singers imo are the worst ones there. Sam sounds like a foghorn and the choir sung the tricky bits, Emily is just bleh. Millions of teenage girls can sing like that, nothing special there.

I’m so happy for her! She seems to really be enjoying this experience and I only hope that her career takes a turn for the amazing now! 🙂

Well done Saara ! 🙂 I really enjoy these updates on the Finnish star 🙂 Thank you WIWIBLOGGS 🙂

On another note, John Bundy, new CEO of Maltese national broadcaster has confirmed that the entry which will represent Malta this year will be chosen by the public unlike previous years. There is no talk about the jury – televote weighting points but it is a sure thing that unlike previous years more attention will be given to the public. A good move 🙂

Omg she chose Björk’s song ever. Saara wyd! And that tragic outfit doesn’t make it any better. The good sis can go home at this point, I guess.

There were acts that were bland enough *cough* Ryan *cough* to keep her out of the bottom 2

Never really thought of Bjork as “diva”, but this was really good. A bit jazzy, a bit musical theatrey, but she nailed it, and clearly looked like she was having fun.

Definitely her best performance so far.

Us Brits love something quirky and someone who doesn’t take themselves too seriously, so I think she will have done a lot to win over the British public and hopefully avoid the bottom 3, first time I’m saying that.
