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.
