X Factor 2016: Saara Aalto is the odds-on favourite to WIN


Saara Aalto is the new odds-on X Factor favourite ahead of next weekend's final at Wembley Arena.

We're down to three contestants now following another elimination Sunday evening.

This week the top four all performed twice for the second time this year but it couldn't save Emily Middlemas who left in The X Factor 2016 results after the sing-off.

Simon Cowell is now out of the competition after mentoring the Girls category, without any acts in the final.


Nicole Scherzinger is keeping the Boys in check with Matt Terry, Sharon Osbourne has Saara Aalto in the Overs and Louis Walsh has his one group left with 5 After Midnight.

Saara has become the new favourite to win after the weekend's performances in what has become the X Factor's biggest turnaround ever.

Alex Donohue from bookies Ladbrokes said: "Saara has stunned us at just the right time.

"She now looks like going into the final as a hot favourite at the expense of Matt who had been in front from day one."

However it's looking likely to be an incredibly close result.

For the first time in X Factor history, EVERY finalist has topped the vote and EVERY finalist has also been in the bottom two sing off.

Who is your favourite at the moment as the final approaches?
