Demi Lovato talks Eurovision movie: “Oh my gosh, I’m playing an Icelandic popstar!”
Yesterday, Netflix released the long-awaited movie “Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga” starring Will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams. Also featuring in a few scenes during the movie is global popstar Demi Lovato and she has been promoting the film with a number of interviews during the past week.
Eurovision is “beautiful, powerful and inspiring”
Amongst early reactions on social media, Demi’s musical contribution to the film, “In The Mirror”, is certainly considered one of the highlights of the soundtracks alongside Molly Sandén “Husavïk”. Indeed, these two tracks are already charting across several iTunes charts across the world.
Talking to eurovision.tv about the concept of Eurovision itself, Demi was inspired by the fact that Eurovision was created after the Second World War to bring divided nations together once more:
I think it’s really beautiful that there’s something like Eurovision that brings people together, especially in this day in age when there’s so much hate in the world. When you’re able to turn [the devastation of] a war into something positive and bring people together through the universal language of music, it is beautiful, powerful and inspiring.
