Will Ferrell is a massive fan of Eurovision – who’d a thunk it?

The actor was recently spotted in Lisbon for the Song Contest and revealed to 20 Minutes that he’s been a following it for almost twenty years ago. He was introduced to the program by his Swedish wife, Viveca Paulin.

Ferrell previously went to see the contest in Copenhagen four years ago when Conchita Wurst won. Rumour has it he’s in talks for a Eurovision doc for Netflix.

He was photographed with Ireland's dancer Kevin O'Dwyer, and backing singers Janet Grogan and Remy Anna on the Eurovision blue carpet.


Our own Eurovision hopeful, Ryan O'Shaughnessy, will perform his song, Together, in tonight’s semi-final. Fingers crossed!
