I hoped people would take me as I am. It doesn't matter where I come from.
It has always been my dream to do Eurovision since I was a child.
I don't want to sing about going to a party with friends, I want to sing meaningful songs that can inspire people and I think Sia's songs are really deep. 'Chandelier' is about young girls who think they have to please others to be loved and that really touched me.
I'm of course jumping right in with the attitude that I can win the Eurovision Song Contest - or at least finish in second place!
I don't want to be difficult personally. On stage is the right place for a diva.
We want it to be sunny. Something small and intimate because my work is so public. That would be good for me, but my partner wants to have a big wedding.
It's incredible how my life has so many things happening at the same time.
It's funny, the only song I didn't want to do originally was 'Oh So Quiet.' And it was the best performance and changed the game for me.
Me and Matt Terry would love to record music together, maybe something on YouTube to our fans.
It's very Finnish to think you can't make it outside Finland.
All the experience from 'X Factor' U.K. I can use that - I know what I'm doing on a big stage.
When people come to my gigs, they feel accepted as they are and they feel part of this family.
I love that music will bring people together, because the world is full of negativity.
I was honored I was signed to Sony. But later I felt like they weren't the right team.
I'm now working with some of the best songwriters in the world and Sia has written a song that has been given to me. Oh my God, it's just insane.
When I release my music I will text Sharon Osborne and ask her about my songs.
I want to do a musical. I want to write a book. I have all these ideas and I can't get away from them.
In music, you can't really tell who's better.
I want to have a go at presenting. As a child I was always filming my own TV shows with my sister, so it feels natural to me.
This song is by Bjork called 'Oh So Quiet' and it's really different. I'll be screaming and just having fun on stage. It's really, really different but I'm very excited to do that number.
I think Honey G is a brand, she's an inspiration for me at least.
I grew up in Finland, so it's cold in Finland, we have ice rinks outdoors.
They haven't had 'The X Factor' in Finland for ten years. But because I was on it and it was such a hit, they decided to bring it back and have me as a judge.
I think you should have some more lesbian women out here on the British TV!
I will never risk my wellbeing for my career and it's always worked out well for me and led me to the right places.
It took a while to get the support of British people as they wouldn't naturally want to support someone from another country.
Feelings don't lie.
I think for me 'X Factor' was the hardest thing I've ever done.
The thing is, Finland is such a small country. It only has a population of five million, which is half of London. There's nothing there. I just had to get out. The U.K. is the perfect place to come.
I was in 'The Voice of Finland' in 2012 and my girlfriend - fiancee now - watched the show, liked me a lot and sent me a fan message through Facebook. She wrote, 'I have never, ever sent a message like this to anybody, but I just had this intuition that I have to send this to you.'
When I came here, I was a little bit different and in Finland people didn't really accept me, and then I came here and I saw Honey G doing so well and I thought 'British people are so great, they accept Honey G as she is, so maybe they'll accept me as well.'
But when you grow, you get older and I realized that I would prefer being with a girl.
When you train every day your body starts to change. The biggest thing I have noticed is my bum.
I have skated when I was a child, but it was just with our friends and our parents, no special technique.
I was on 'X Factor' the day after the Brexit vote. People voted for Brexit. But the public also voted for me, they wanted me to be there and part of the music industry. I haven't felt any bad effects.
One small decision, for me to get on a flight from Finland to the U.K. - I had no idea how that one small thing could just change my whole life forever.
I love a challenge and I love performing and doing crazy performances.
Posh was my favorite Spice Girl but she didn't have that many lines to sing.
I came second in 'The Voice of Finland' in 2012 and my career really exploded at home. I had 300 gigs a year.
Compared to professional dancers, I'm obviously not professional but I do love to dance so much.
I think we should have Eurovision every week. It's a really beautiful event, and it's very deep.
There should be more LGBT people on TV.
It's always been my dream to sing for Simon Cowell, plus I wanted to get out of Finland.
When I met the people at Warner, they were very excited about my style and making me into this big theatrical artist.
I was scared to be myself because I love to be flamboyant.
I'm doing 'Dancing on Ice' and I'm just exhausted.
So many months in the 'X Factor' house and sharing my room with five other girls was tough.
I can be very competitive, but I mainly want to challenge myself.
I think Sia is a pretty good reference for me because her way of 'singing and the way she composes the melodies and writes the lyrics is very similar to what I've always done.
'The X Factor' has brought so much joy to so many people.
