'X Factor' Contestants And Their Mentors Talk Final Nerves And Their Experience On The Show

We spoke to them on the red carpet of a special press event.

It’s been a long few months for the ‘X Factor’ contestants, but this weekend is the one they’ve all been waiting for - the grand final.

Matt Terry, Saara Aalto and 5 After Midnight will all be battling it out to become the next winner of the ITV talent show, as they find out whose hard work has landed them a recording contract with Simon Cowell.

They’ll perform in front of a crowd of thousands at Wembley Arena - as well as millions at home - as they take to the stage on Saturday (10 December) and Sunday night.

So to find out how they’re feeling, we caught up with them and their mentors, Sharon Osbourne, Louis Walsh and Nicole Scherzinger, at a special press event ahead of the final.

Watch the video above to see Sharon explain why Saara is an “inspiration to every young girl in this country, and in Finland”, and host Dermot O’Leary reveal his highlight of the entire series.

‘The X Factor’ final airs on Saturday an Sunday at 8pm on ITV.

Series One, 2004
