Saara Aalto is in talks to represent the United Kingdom in the 'Eurovision Song Contest'.
The 'X Factor' runner up has revealed she has held discussions with the BBC about appearing for the UK in the annual singing contest, which will take place in Lisbon, Portugal next year.
She said: "There have been talks with the BBC, they really want me to do it. I love Eurovision so I have been searching for the right opportunity to be part of it. It's just whether I should do it for the UK or Finland or some other country. But the UK is my home now. It would be quite fun, Eurovision has always been a dream of mine."
It comes after Saara - who recently quit Simon Cowell's record label Sony Music UK and moved over to Warner - revealed the 'X Factor' was the best but most exhausting experience.
Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, she said previously: "It was the best experience and the most exhausting experience of my life. It was really tough. Fortunately I got to be there for the whole time.
"Of course it was really tiring. So many months in the 'X Factor' house and sharing my room with five other girls was tough. But my whole life changed because of the show. I am seeing all these things we don't have in Finland."
And Saara is determined to be Finland's first pop superstar.
She shared: "Whenever I told people I wanted to be an international singer they were always like, 'You are from Finland, you can do it.' Label guys told me, 'You can never be as good as international artists.' I said, 'That's not true, I can be as good as I want to be.'"
