Saara Aalto had a bit of a disaster on the X Factor 2016 tonight.

'Saara from Finland', as she is now known it seems, originally WOWED everyone at her first audition.

Her performance of Sia's Chandelier has proved a huge hit online and has already racked up millions of views since airing last month.

In front of the judges at the time, Saara revealed: "I've performed a lot, a lot, I've done talent shows in Finland but I have never done anything like this, I need help which is why I came here."

After blowing the judges away with her voice, Saara got some strange if ultimately flattering feedback from Nicole Scherzinger who said: "That was so good you make me want to twerk right now, my ass wants to clap for you. You are the bomb dot com."

She continued: "You're an artist with your voice, you just painted the most gorgeous picture. I feel grateful I got to witness that."

In tonight's Six Chairs, Saara originally performed Ed Sheeran's I See Fire and while the crowd loved it, mentor of the Overs' Sharon Osbourne wasn't sure.

Sharon, who wasn't actually at Saara's first audition, told her: "You do have an amazing range but when you sing, I do not feel a connection to what you're singing about, there's something missing."

"I think you have to give me one more chance," begged Saara before bursting into song in French.

Cue the audience immediately turning on poor Saara, chanting 'OFF, OFF, OFF!'

"What was that?!" reacted Simon Cowell.

And even Nicole, who had been supporting Saara, snapped: "Girl do you know where we are? We ain't in France, this is your one shot!"

Unfortunately from that there was no way back as Saara wasn't given a seat by Sharon.

The X Factor 2016's Six Chair Challenge airs tonight at 7PM on ITV.
