X Factor UK Headlines for 10/29/17

Saara Aalto parted ways with Sony Music/Sony Finland and signed a new record deal with Warner Music. The Sun has the details of Simon Cowell’s health scare.

After the finale of X Factor UK S13, runner-up Saara Aalto signed a record deal with Sony Music/Sony Finland and started working on her new music. This week she revealed to The Sun’s Dan Wootton that she parted ways with Sony and signed a new deal with Warner Music. It’s a bit weird hearing about an artist being dropped from a label without releasing any music with that label. I guess the creative differences between Saara and Sony were too big.
