Saara Aalto is reportedly okay with coming second tonight in the X Factor 2016 Final Results show.
According to a news outlet, Saara Aalto doesn’t actually want to win The X Factor on Sunday night. Second place is fine.
Saara is up against Matt Terry in this evening’s live show, either Saara or Matt will win The X Factor 2016.
The Sun newspaper quotes Saara saying: “Coming second would be better than the number one spot, as it would mean having the freedom that the winner does not.”
The winner of The X Factor automatically signs a record deal with Simon Cowell’s Syco label, as other contestants are free to sign with whoever.
Previous runner-ups JLS and Olly Murs have signed with other labels, not Syco.
The X Factor 2016 concludes tonight on ITV from 8pm.
