CHATTER AWAY: Overnight Open Thread

Billboard Magazine reports:

The Dutch port city of Rotterdam has been selected to host next year’s Eurovision Song Contest. The European Broadcasting Union announced Friday that Rotterdam edged the southern city of Maastricht in the race to host the annual music competition. The Netherlands won the right to host the 65th edition of the festival when Dutch singer Duncan Laurence won this year’s event in Tel Aviv with his doleful piano ballad “Arcade.”

Variety reports:

Demi Lovato has joined the upcoming Netflix comedy film “Eurovision.” Will Ferrell, who co-wrote the film with Andrew Steele, announced the news Tuesday with an Instagram post. Following the announcement, Lovato can be seen blowing out candles on the cake next to a “Eurovision” slate.

“Eurovision” follows a pair of aspiring Icelandic musicians, Lars Erickssong and Sigrit Ericksdottir (played by Ferrell and Rachel McAdams), who are given the opportunity of a lifetime to represent their country at the annual Eurovision song contest – the world’s biggest song competition.
