Conchita! Netta! The song-along!
1) Yes, Eurovision is a real thing that exists outside of the new Netflix movie with will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams. In fact, this is how ABBA got famous. They won in 1974!!
2) In the film Eurovision Song Contest: The Story Of The Fire Of The Saga — that, I love it and I want everyone to look at — there have been apparitions of tons of the former Eurovision competitors.
We see our first appearance while will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams ‘ characters are tours around Edinburgh. It is Salvador Sobral of Portugal.
Here are all those cameos:
Anna Odobescu of Moldova.
Alexander Rybak of Norway.
Elina Nechayeva of Estonia.
And then there was even a cameo that took place in the course of The Fire Of The Saga‘s semi-final performance.
The Hamster Wheel may not be a living, breathing human, but he deserves just as much recognition because he was in 2014 Eurovision performance by Mariya Yaremchuk. The things done best is the first time for the good ol’ Hamster Wheel.
