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.
