UK X Factor finalist Saara Aalto has been chosen to judge the talent competition in the Finnish version of the show. Aalto is native Finnish. “When I auditioned the X Factor UK last May I never thought I’d end up being a judge on the X Factor only a year later!” Aalto opens up about the role of judge, “X Factor Finland will be a great journey with my amazing fellow judges! I know what it takes to go through a competition like this, so I’m gonna give my all to the contestants and share them my experience! Show me your X Factor.” Aalto’s X factor journey was followed in Finland, but the native version of the show was not created yet. “They loved it. So it’s been quite natural for them to ask me to be a judge. I feel I have a lot to bring to it,” she said.
