X Factor 2016: Saara Aalto wants Nicole Scherzinger to sing at her wedding


Saara Aalto says she plans to ask Nicole Scherzinger to perform at her wedding.

The X Factor contestant got engaged to girlfriend Meri Sopanen just before the live shows, and reckons Nicole would make for the perfect performer at their nuptials.

Saara said this week: "Before The X Factor we were discussing who we would like to sing at our wedding, and we both agreed Nicole would be so perfect. I'll have to ask her."

Chatting to Reveal magazine, Saara told how her girlfriend has a huge crush on Nicole, which makes her slightly jealous.

"My fiancée has a crush on Nicole – she has always loved her so much. When I first met her, she had Nicole's pictures on her phone... her screensaver on her laptop. I remember thinking, 'Oh no! Nicole is the most beautiful woman in the world'. No pressure, hey?" Saara said.

She continued: "Two weeks ago, she finally got to take a photograph with Nicole and it was the best moment ever. It was so surreal as in Finland, we never get to meet any celebrities. I was jealous of course, but I'm happy for her!"

Meanwhile, despite all the raving about the Pussycat Doll singer, Saara insisted she was more than happy with her actual mentor Sharon Osbourne.

Saara said: "Sharon is an amazing mentor. She's in LA but she's texting me every week. She's always there for me and available when I need her. She's very sweet and very supportive.

"And remembering my name isn't a problem anymore!"

One would hope so...

The X Factor 2016 continues this Saturday and Sunday night live on ITV at 8PM with the semi-finals.

Each of the top four acts will be singing twice and there will be guest performances from Lady Gaga and Zara Larsson.
