X Factor runner-up Saara Aalto has treated us to an amazing rendition of Sia’s ‘Alive’ as she continues to win over fans off the back of the show.
In an exclusive clip, Saara took to the stage in Finland in front of 13,000 people to perform the track. And she nailed it.
But that’s not all – it sounds like her new album is coming together nicely too.
A source told Digital Spy: “Saara’s very excited – she’s just found the lead song for the album.
“The majority will be written by Saara and nearly all of it will be co-written. It’s a big song and everyone is very excited.”
Saara recently headlined the final night of the week-long Gay Pride celebrations in Gran Canaria, with her own tribute to her home country taking a little inspiration from Ginger Spice.
She said of the performance: “I had the best time at my first ever international Pride event and it was so amazing to see so many people from all around the world come together to celebrate.”
Saara made headlines after impressing viewers with her big vocals and extravagant performances on last year’s series of The X Factor, where she covered everyone from Celine Dion and Whitney Houston to Lady Gaga and Bjork.
Watch this space for more news on her first album – and that all-important “lead song” that’s got her so excited.
