Rachel McAdams and Will Ferrell Star in Hilarious Trailer for Netflix’s Eurovision Movie

  Rachel McAdams and Will Ferrell Star in Hilarious Trailer for Netflix’s Eurovision Movie Rachel McAdams and Will Ferrell star as two friends with a dream of making it big at the Eurovision Song Contest — to potentially disastrous and hilarious resultsThe two star in Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga, which follows Icelandic musicians Lars Erickssong (Ferrell) and Sigrit Ericksdottir (McAdams), members of the fictional band Fire Saga, as they are given the once-in-a-lifetime chance to represent their country at the world’s biggest song competition.

Sigrit shows off vocals so impressive that frontrunner Alexander Lemtov (Dan Stevens) takes an interest in her talent.

If you've watched the film, you're probably wondering if McAdams is actually singing.

The answer is partly.

A Netflix representative told Insider McAdams sang the beginning of a few songs and one in its entirety. Other songs were a blend of her voice and that of Swedish singer Molly Sandén, who was actually a contestant on the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in 2006.

Ferrell does all of his own singing.

"I was singing all the songs and then [director] David [Dobkin] would kind of lift bits of my performance," McAdams told the AV Club, who said she watched Björk to help with her performance as an Icelandic singer. "The bulk of the music was done by a Swedish singer, Molly Sandén. Our voices were quite similar."

"They did some fancy stuff in the studio and pulled it together that way," she added. "And then I sing the song that my character's composing."

The song McAdams sings in full is when she's working out the lyrics to Sigrit's song, "Husavik." You can watch that moment an hour and two minutes into the movie.
