EUROVISION SONG CONTEST 2018: FINLAND - 'Monsters' By Saara Aalto

Eurovision 2018 – Finland

The Finland song is called ‘Monsters and performed by Saara Aalto.

ARTIST

Saara Aalto is firmly established as one of Finland’s major talents and celebrated stars. She was a runner-up in the TV smash hits The Voice & Finland’s Got Talent plus the voice of Princess Anna in the Finnish version of the global hit movie Frozen. She was the most and second-most Googled person in Finland in 2016 and 2017 respectively.

Saara achieved international stardom when she entered Simon Cowell’s X Factor UK in 2016. The man himself ecstatically proclaimed: “That’s how you do it” following her first audition. From there Saara went from strength to strength. She regularly topped the weekly public vote and went on to finish as the runner-up of the entire series.

SONG

Saara has wrote Monsters together with the team behind Måns Zelmerlöw’s Eurovision winning song Heroes. The stage performance of the song has been created by Brian Friedman, the creative genius behind performances by Beyonce, Cher and Mariah Carey.

LIVE PERFORMANCE

OPINION

Ah we all love Saara Aalto, right? This was my favourite of her three songs she put forward but I was slightly disappointed in the live performance, there just seemed something missing. Either way it’s an ANTHEM and I still LOVE it!

PREDICTION

This should absolutely qualify, if it doesn’t it will be the ‘robbed song’ of the contest this year. If it qualifies I can see it finishing on the left hand side of the leader board. I really hope she doesn’t have another ‘almost won’ situation!

LYRICS

Closed my eyes, so I couldn’t see it
Felt so numb, but now I’m ready to feel it
So tonight I’m making friends with all the creatures that are hiding there under my bed

I ain’t gonna hold on to these monsters anymore
Now I’m gonna let in all the light, tear down the walls
At my worst, I found my army strong
All the demons are gone
You can try and scare me now, but I ain’t scared no more
I ain’t scared no more

No, I ain’t, I ain’t scared no  more

It’s my life, I’m ready to lead it
I’m gonna roll the dice, you better believe it
So tonight I’m making friends with all the creatures that are hiding there under my bed

I ain’t gonna hold on to these monsters anymore
Now I’m gonna let in all the light, tear down the walls
At my worst, I found my army strong
All the demons are gone
You can try and scare me now, but I ain’t scared no more
I ain’t, I ain’t, I ain’t scared no more

I ain’t scared no more

No, no
I ain’t scared, I ain’t scared

I ain’t gonna hold on to these monsters anymore
Now I’m gonna let in all the light, tear down the walls
At my worst, I found my army strong
All the demons are gone
You can try and scare me now, but I ain’t scared no more
I ain’t, I ain’t, I ain’t scared no more

I ain’t scared no more
I ain’t scared no more
