Tonight's X Factor final is too close to call

The X Factor continues this evening with the final show of the series.

The X Factor 2016 concludes tonight with the grand final airing on ITV at 8pm.

I want Saara Aalto to win because I think Matt will still have a singing career if he comes second and the runner up often has a more successful career than the victor and I would like to see Matt go on and have a successful career, rather than just a couple of years of success like the winners.

"Your mum was so proud of you, she was so looking forward to tonight and she's looking down on you now".

On Saturday, Saara Aalto belted out Everybody Wants to Rule The World by Tears For Fears before singing Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody with Adam Lambert.

This is the second win for his mentor, Nicole Scherzinger, who mentored James Arthur, the victor of the 2012 series.

For her favourite song, Saara has chosen Oh So Quiet by Björk, a choice that not everyone feels is the best one with many wanting The Winner Takes It All by Abba.

Judge Louis Walsh praised her for not being predictable and said: "I would buy your album!"

Steve Brookstein, the first victor, who was been embroiled in a public feud with Cowell, revelled in the bad news for the show, writing on Twitter: "X Factor ratings are at an all time low".

X Factor boss Simon Cowell said he loved that she did not "take herself too seriously" and said her performance was "off the charts".

Runner-up Aalto thanked everyone for their support. "Thank you for being here with me every step of the way".

Matt also fought off stiff competition from band Five After Midnight, who placed third, with the band hot on his heels in the rankings consistently throughout the ten weeks of live shows - and beating him in week six.

She said: "A year ago I thought I would quit, I would give up because I didn't find my place".

Ahead of the Sunday finale, Terry tweeted his thanks to his fans writing: "Feeling blessed and grateful for all of you right now".

"You came into this final as good artists, and you've ended as great artists", he said.
