The premiere date for Netflix’s eagerly awaited Eurovision movie is fast approaching. And while we already know that the cast list includes Hollywood A-listers Will Ferrell, Rachel McAdams, Pierce Brosnan, Dan Stevens and Demi Lovato, Eurovision Song Contest: The Story Of Fire Saga will also feature a whole host of stars from Eurovision itself.
Cameos in the Netflix Eurovision movie
While the Netflix film won’t debut on the streaming platform for another week — on Friday 26 June — some film critics have already seen advanced screenings of the movie. The Swedish website MOVIEZINE details all the Eurovision cameos its writer spied in the picture.
Swedish Eurovision stars Loreen (2012) and John Lundvik (2019) will be seen at a big party. They’ll take then take part in a musical medley with Norway’s Alexander Rybak (2009), Austria’s Conchita Wurst (2014) and Israel’s Netta (2018).
Fans will also see Ukraine’s Jamala (2016), Moldova’s Anna Odobescu (2019), Estonia’s Elina Nechayeva (2018) and France’s Jessy Matador (2010) and Bilal Hassani (2019).
As revealed in the trailer, the UK’s commentator Graham Norton will make an appearance too.
The MOVIEZINE report also confirms that Melodifestivalen hitmaker Molly Sandén will provide the singing voice for Rachel McAdam’s Sigrit Ericksdottir throughout the movie. We already knew that she was responsible for the female vocals on the soundtrack’s lead single “Volcano Man”. The song has also been covered by the aforementioned Rybak, Jamala, Odobescu and Nechayeva.
Portugal’s Eurovision 2017 winner Salvador Sobral, for instance, has previously confirmed that he’ll play a street singer in the movie.
Update: Now that the film is out, we can also confirm that our very own William Lee Adams has a cameo as himself in the commentary box during the semi-finals! It’s quick — blink and you’ll miss him! — but he’s the only other commentator to speak besides Graham Norton, so well done!
