Finish singer Saara Aalto is not just a snow fairy, she's a real life Disney princess.

Well, sort of.

Saara from Finland, as she has seemingly become known as, has made quite a name for herself in her home country.

The 29-year-old previously competed to represent Finland in the Eurovison song contest and in 2012, Saara made it to the final of The Voice of Finland.

She also works as a voice dubber with an impressive list of credits.

Saara has provided the Finish voices in a range of movies for Disney, including Anna from Frozen, Merida in Brave and Alice in Alice in Wonderland.

Last month we saw Saara pop up in the audition rooms hoping to take the next step and break into the UK.

"This is the first time I come to UK, so happy!" said an adorable Saara on the show. "I've always had this one dream to be a real Disney princess. Since I was a child, I can sing Let It Go in 15 languages.

"We can see X Factor from Finish TV and so I've been watching the shows with Simon, I actually had no idea I'd be singing in front of him. I can't believe this is true, this is happening."

Saara performed Sia's Chandelier and Nicole LOVED it.

The US singer raved: "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."

While Saara sailed through to the Six Chair Challenge, things didn't go quite to plan from there.

After Overs mentor Sharon Osbourne failed to give Saara a seat, the crowd also turned against her when she started singing in French.

But throughout it all, Nicole has had Saara's back and chose her to become a wildcard at judges' houses.

From there, Sharon had a change of heart and now Saara is in the live shows.

The X Factor airs this Saturday night at 8PM on ITV.
