“Composed by a number of talented musicians (including Savan Kotecha, who has written for Ariana Grande and The Weeknd), these impressive ditties nail the bombastic, hummable pop for which Eurovision is famous.”- The New York Times
“There’s a sequence at 46 minutes into the 123-minute Eurovision that stands as one of the most enjoyable cinematic sequences in any film this year. It’s a somewhat stand-alone musical “sing-along,” where our main stars mostly sit back and let a collage of other musicians and actors do a lively and non-competitive version of those “sing-off” scenes from the Pitch Perfect movies.”- Forbes
“Netflix’s hilarious new comedy Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga has brought us our new favorite superstar singing duo: Will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams…From Ferrell’s single “Volcano Man” to “In The Mirror” by Demi Lovato, the soundtrack features some hilariously iconic original songs from the film.”- POPSUGAR
