Saara Aalto suggests how the UK could win Eurovision and reveals her desire to return to the contest

Yesterday’s announcement that the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest would be hosted in the Israeli city of Tel Aviv has become headline news in various media outlets across Europe. In response, British newspaper The Daily Express reached out to this year’s Finnish Eurovision representative Saara Aalto to find out just what Saara thinks it could take for the UK to be next year’s winning nation.

A UK supergroup?

After supporting Steps on tour over the summer, The X Factor UK runner-up Saara believes that the pop group could be the answer to the UK’s Eurovision woes… and that she’d love to join them to make a supergroup for the UK!

“I was touring with Steps in June in the UK on their Stadium Tour and it was so great. I know people really want them to do Eurovision for the UK – I’m like, ‘hmm, maybe I should join them!’”

“I love Faye [Tozer] doing Strictly Come Dancing, she’s so lovely, and I really want to work with them. So maybe we should do Eurovision for the UK. I would love that.”

“I would love to do it again”

It isn’t just Saara that believes Steps are the perfect act for the United Kingdom at Eurovision. Earlier this summer, fellow Summer of Steps support act Blue made the same claim!

Whether alongside Steps or not, Saara also revealed that she would love to take part in the Eurovision Song Contest again after getting everything she wanted out of this year’s experience in Lisbon.

“I definitely got what I wanted. I loved my performance, I did it with Brian Friedman – who I worked with on X Factor. I loved the whole event. I would love to do it again.”

My first memory of watching the Eurovision Song Contest was back in 2001 and, over the years, my passion and enthusiasm for the contest has very much turned into an obsession. I adore music and I love geography, so this contest is a natural fit for me. If la la loving Eurovision was a crime, I'd certainly be a criminal!
