Saara Aalto is firmly established as one of Finland’s major talents and celebrated stars. She was a runner-up in the TV smash hits The Voice & Finland’s Got Talent plus the voice of Princess Anna in the Finnish version of the global hit movie Frozen. She was the most and second-most Googled person in Finland in 2016 and 2017 respectively.
Saara achieved international stardom when she entered Simon Cowell’s X Factor UK in 2016. The man himself ecstatically proclaimed: "That’s how you do it" following her first audition. From there Saara went from strength to strength. She regularly topped the weekly public vote and went on to finish as the runner-up of the entire series.
For Saara Aalto, the Eurovision Song Contest had become the impossible dream. She was the runner-up in the Finnish national selections twice. In 2011 she finished second with the song Blessed With Love and in 2016 she also finished second with No Fear.
In 2018 Saara's dream will become reality. Whilst recording her international debut album Saara got a sudden phone call. She was asked to represent Finland in the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest. She immediately agreed and her song Monsters was selected by the Finnish public.

About the song writers and composers

Saara has wrote Monsters together with the team behind Måns Zelmerlöw's Eurovision winning song Heroes. The stage performance of the song has been created by Brian Friedman, the creative genius behind performances by Beyonce, Cher and Mariah Carey.

Lyrics

English (Original)

Closed my eyes, so I couldn’t see itFelt so numb, but now I’m ready to feel it
So tonight I’m making friends with all the creatures that are hiding there under my bed
I ain’t gonna hold on to these monsters anymoreNow I’m gonna let in all the light, tear down the wallsAt my worst I found my army strong, all the demons are goneYou can try and scare me now but I ain’t scared no more
I ain’t scared no moreI ain’t, I ain’t, I ain’t scared no more
It’s my life, I’m ready to lead itI’m gonna roll the dice, you better believe it
So tonight I’m making friends with all the creatures that are hidingthere under my bed
I ain’t gonna hold on to these monsters anymoreNow I’m gonna let in all the light, tear down the wallsAt my worst I found my army strong, all the demons are goneYou can try and scare me now but I ain’t scared no more
I ain’t scared no more.Haaa… (I ain’t scared no more).No-o, No-o, I ain’t scared, I ain’t scared!
I ain’t gonna hold on to these monsters anymoreNow I’m gonna let in all the light, tear down the wallsAt my worst I found my army strong, all the demons are goneYou can try and scare me now but I ain’t scared no more
I ain’t scared no more
