X Factor 2016: Saara Aalto gives an AMAZING Christmas performance


Saara Aalto sleighed her Christmas themed performance on The X Factor 2016 tonight.

Last week the jukebox picked out a Christmas theme for this week's semi-finals.

And Saara gave it EVERYTHING with a mash up of White Christmas and Mariah Carey's All I Want For Christmas is You

Louis Walsh gushed: "I think you are incredible, I think you are a world class artist, every week you bring something different."

Nicole Scherzinger told Saara: "I loved the medley you did in the beginning.

"You did one of the best Christmas songs ever, you put your own thing it, it was a bit corny but you put a smile on my face!"

Simon Cowell said: "It was a bit corny but not only do you have a great voice, you have one of the best personalities we've had on this show in a long time.

"You've done a massive turnaround in the first live show from now."

Finally, Saara's mentor Sharon Osbourne concluded: "You do throw yourself into the spirit of everything you do, whether it's fun or serious. It was FABULOUS!"
