Millions of hearts broke following the announcement that the annual Eurovision Song Contest would be cancelled in 2020 for the first time in over 60 years due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

However, while Eurovision devotees are still coming to terms with the news, Netflix just dropped a new film over the weekend starring Will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams called Eurovision Song Contest: The Story Of Fire Saga, and it's just as wonderfully bizarre as the competition it pays tribute to. 

Admittedly I've been in quarantine for a while now, but... is this the best movie I've ever seen?!

The film follows Lars (Ferrell) and Sigrit (McAdams), two small-town singers from Húsavík, Iceland known as Fire Saga who chase their pop star dreams to the Eurovision stage. 

Check out the trailer: 

The film also stars Pierce Brosnan, Dan Stevens and Demi Lovato, and is directed by David Dobkin.
