Eurovision: X Factor’s Saara Aalto Could Be Heading For The 2018 Song Contest

But which country will she fly the flag for?

Saara Aalto could wind up performing at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, but the star has admitted she’s not sure which country she’d live to represent.

The ‘X Factor’ runner-up hails from Finland but, following her success on last year’s series, currently resides in the UK.

Speaking to The Sun, she opened up about her conundrum: “There have been talks with the BBC, they really want me to do it.

This year, the BBC have opened the song selection process up to members of public and are accepting submissions from anyone who thinks they’ve penned a potential hit.

Saara won’t be the first ‘X Factor’ star to take part in the Song Contest if she does jet off to the competition, as last year Lucie Jones was the UK’s entry.

Jedward also competed for Ireland - giving them their best result in 11 years in 2011 - while Andy ‘Andy The Bin Man’ Abrahams took part in 2008, finishing joint last.

Next year’s Eurovision will take place in Lisbon, following Portugal’s triumph back in May.
