Eurovision Song Contest: Yes, Those Were Actual Contestants During the Film’s Song-a-long

While the actual 2020 Eurovision Song Contest may have been canceled due to COVID-19, it doesn’t feel like we’ve missed much thanks to Netflix’s Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga, which was released on June 26. Thanks to a number of cameos from real Eurovision stars, the “song-a-long” that happens during the middle of the film truly embodies what makes the Eurovision Song Contest great: the music.

It’s clear from how the song-a-long is shot that the highlighted singers are important, yet to an audience unfamiliar with Eurovision — since only countries that are part of the European Broadcasting Union can participate — they come across as a group of fabulous yet unfamiliar talent. However, each of these singers is a winner or fan favorite from past competitions. It’s no wonder they tapped Swedish singer Erik Mjönes and former Junior Eurovision Song Contest winner Molly Sandén for the singing voices of Alexander Lemtov and Sigrit Ericksdottir. If you’re wondering who these singers are and what they sound like outside of a party happening at one of Alexander’s “top five favorite” homes, you can watch their Eurovision performances ahead.
