Despite being in the bottom two on more than one occasion this series of The X Factor, songstress Saara Aalto is now the favourite to win the show after a pair of stunning performances on last night's semi-final.

In her best night ever, Saara started things out with a slow and perfected rendition of a verse from 'White Christmas', before cranking up the camp factor and busting into 'All I Want For Christmas Is You'. Following that medley, she returned later in the night with the very song she sang during her first audition for the show - Sia's 'Chandelier'.

With everybody on their feet at the climax of that song - judges included - Saara is now incredibly the favourite to win, overtaking former favourite Matt Terry. She sits with best odds of 11/10, whilst Matt is at 11/8. 5 After Midnight come in at third with 10/1, whilst Emily Middlemas looks to be favourite to go tonight, now only 14/1 to win.

Find out who will miss out on a place in the final in tonight's results show, 8pm on ITV.
