She out-Celined Celine Dion on X Factor’s Movies Week and gave us goosebumps with her breathtaking performance of Titanic’s “My Heart Will Go On”, earning her another standing ovation from Louis, Nicole and mentor Sharon.
And Saara Aalto became a box office hit with the British public, as she avoided the dreaded sing-off to reach the top 5, following in the footsteps of a certain Ruth Lorenzo from series 5 in 2008.
Saara looked stunned as Dermot announced her name, then jumped and shrieked with happiness as the good news sunk in.

Saturday’s show saw Saara took on a former Eurovision winner classic with her haunting rendition of Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On”. Louis was impressed saying she always deliver. Nicole described her as a beautiful, Finnish fairy princess, but Saara’s outfit didn’t go down well with Simon, who preferred the wacky side of her.
Tonight’s X Factor sing-off came down to Ryan Lawrie and North Weezy rapper Honey G. Both Nicole and Sharon saved their own acts respectively, whilst Louis and Simon chose to send Ryan home.
Next week’s theme is “Louis Loves”, so expect the likes of ABBA, David Bowie and all things Irish from the X Factor judge himself. “It’ll be interesting”, said Saara.
With the final just three weeks away, can Saara go all the way? Let us know in the comments section below!
