Saara Aalto joins Steps...
Finnish pop star Aalto will join Steps on their summer tour later this year ✨
It's just been announced that favourite to win the Eurovision Song Contest, and X Factor runner up, Saara Aalto, is set to join pop supergroup Steps as a special guest on their UK summer tour. (Dream combo ✨)
Saara will be on tour from May following the launch of her debut, international single in March. The single will also be Finland’s entry to the Eurovision Song Contest.
"I can't wait to be back in front of British audiences again. The UK really embraced me and my style!" Saara told DIVA.
"To be performing alongside Steps in stadiums up and down the country is a dream come true after my X Factor experience".
The Finnish popster has been working with internationally acclaimed songwriters and producers, including our very own Sophie Ellis-Bextor. Three songs will bid to become her Eurovision entry in a huge live TV special in Finland. The songs in question, Monsters, Domino, and Queens have already been released in Europe - hitting number one in her home country of Finland.
"I think the Steps fans are going to really embrace my sound. My album is very uplifting", adds Saara. "I call the style Epic. Love. Pop. For everyone who loved my big performances on X Factor, this is for them!"
If ever there were a better named music genre than, Epic. Love. Pop, then we're yet to hear it.
