X Factor 2016: Saara Aalto is going all out with tonight's performances


Saara Aalto is going all out with performances on The X Factor 2016 tonight.

Last weekend the Jukebox decided on a Christmas theme for the next set of live performances, a little earlier than one might have expected.

But that's not all as this weekend, for the second time this series, the remaining acts will be singing two songs each, the second will be a track to 'get them to the final'.

For the Xmas theme, Saara will be belting out a CLASSIC Xmas track in the form of Mariah Carey's All I Want For Christmas is You.

She said of her plans for the song: "The whole show and performance is going to be very happy, very girly, but also I need to sing it very well because it's by Mariah!

"So it's pressure, it's a challenge."

Saara's second song is Sia's Chandelier, as she first performed at her first audition.

"The song is so good, it's so emotional and I really hope it will get me to the final," Saara said.

Speaking backstage ahead of tonight's live show, the Finnish singer added: "This week I've rehearsed so much because I need to get myself to the finals, I just have to nail my performances this weekend."

The X Factor 2016 airs LIVE on ITV tonight at 8PM with the latest live performances.

Then on Sunday night at 8PM the latest results will see another act leave, as well as performances from Lady Gaga and Zara Larsson.

Then next weekend is the grand X Factor 2016 FINAL live from Wembley Arena as this year's winner is crowned.
