Saara Aalto to sing and skate at the same time on this weekend’s Dancing on Ice!

It's a first for ITV's long-running series Dancing on Ice!

Saara Aalto skated her way through the first round of British reality competition Dancing on Ice earlier this month. Now, the competition steps up a gear for round two… and Saara is certainly stepping up her game. She’s going to become the show’s first contestant to sing and skate at the same time!

A Dancing on Ice first!

In news published by British newspaper The Sun, and confirmed by Saara herself on Twitter, it is revealed that Saara will sing Idina Menzel’s Let it Go whilst skating on the ice on Sunday evening’s show. Furthermore, the Finnish Eurovision star will be dressed as Frozen‘s Queen Elsa!

“I’ve recorded my own version so I’m going to be skating to my own singing on the ice – live. [Coach Karen Barber] didn’t know I was going to sing, then when I started [rehearsals] she began to suddenly cry. It just blew her away!”

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!
