Graham Norton to feature in ‘Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga’

Recently, it was announced that the Netflix film Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga would be released on June 26th. The release date was originally supposed to coincide with the final of Eurovision 2020. However, the postponement came due to the cancelation of the contest due to COVID-19 pandemic. As the release date approaches, we now know that BBC Eurovision commentator Graham Norton will be making an appearance. According to The Daily Star, Norton will be playing the role…of a Eurovision commentator in the film. Considering he has been commentating the Grand Final of Eurovision for the BBC for the past 11 years (since the 2009 contest), this role shouldn’t be a challenge to him. On the night of what was supposed to be the Grand Final, Netflix released a teaser of the film.

Wrong year Since Italy’s Eurovision comeback in 2011, RAI has selected their artist through the Sanremo Music Festival each year. Initially, the artist was chosen via a special Eurovision committee.

Runner-up Francesca Michielin was then selected as Italy’s 2016 Eurovision representative. The anomaly arose in 2014 when Emma Marrone was internally selected. Unfortunately for Arisa, 2014 was the …
