Here's a full video of Saara Aalto's homecoming gig which took place in Finland last night.

Less than 24 hours after finding out she was in the final, Saara was in her home country for a very special performance in the capital.

On Sunday night, viewers backed Saara to become one of this year's finalists and she couldn't have been happier.

Come Monday evening, Saara was performing on the Helsinki Cathedral steps at the St Thomas Christmas Market in Senate Square, Helsinki.

And it's fair to say more than a few people turned up to see her, with a reported crowd of around 10,000 packing out the city.

At the event, Saara performed a number of songs from the X Factor live shows including Winner Takes It All, Chandelier and Let It Go, as well as her own track No Fear.

"Good morning!!😍This Is it! You helped me make this come true!Thank you❤️Now Finland, Torilla tavataan klo19! 😘🎅🏻" Saara tweeted before the event. "Back in Finland! It was insane and so great to see all those people at the airport ! 😍😍😍😅 Can't wait for the evening!!!"

In a video message posted to Twitter after being voted into the X Factor final, Saara thanked fans: "People we made it, we made it together, thank you so much everybody, thank you for voting!

"Next week is going to be the craziest week in my life and I'm going to do many things I've never done before and they're all for you.

"I hope you have a great week! I just can't wait, thank you so much, I'm so grateful thank you, thank you."

In the final this weekend Saara's set to perform alongside Adam Lambert in a bid to win the show.

However the Finn faces competition from 5 After Midnight and Matt Terry who will be hoping to beat her.

The X Factor 2016 final airs this Saturday and Sunday night on ITV at 8PM.
