Saara Aalto is KILLING IT on The X Factor right now.

Week after week, she's winning over the judges (and us) with her huge performances.

Remember last week, when she was all shiny and sang Bjork? Or the week she put crystals in her hair and wore that mirrored corset thing?

You can't say Saara doesn't try.

She's through to the semi-finals this weekend, where she's hoping to sing her way through to the final.

But even if she doesn't make it to the end, Saara has actually broken a huge X Factor record.

In week one, Saara landed in the bottom two with Bratavio, but made it through with her cover of Sia's Alive. She has been in the bottom two since that first week, but obvs she hasn't been sent home yet.

That makes Saara the first act to land in the bottom two in week one but stay right through to the penultimate week. Saara is the most successful act to come from the bottom two in the first week.

"I think it proves everything is possible. That’s my motto," Saara told The Express. "I believe everything is possible and you can turn everything around. This proves that anything can happen, miracles can happen. I’m so happy and grateful for everyone who has supported me and helped me get this far."

This isn't the only news Saara is celebrating this week – she got engaged!

Before Saara, the honour went to Rylan Clark-Neal, Chico and Katie Waissell, who shared the title.

Her odds are now 5/2 to win the whole series, just being leader Matt Terry, who has 8/11. Emily Middlemas, who must be missing her boyfriend and ex-X Factor contestant Ryan Lawrie, has odds of 9/1 and 5 After Midnight are now the least likely to win, with odds of 10/1.

Honey G is out of the competition (pause to cheer or cry), but we're still wondering if she's for real. Is this the proof we need that she's fake?

Lillie Lexie Gregg is also hitting out at haterz who said Geordie Shore was scripted and fake.
