The singer and actress has joined the cast of Ferrell’s Netflix comedy film Eurovision, inspired by the real-life global singing competition, the streamer announced Tuesday.
Lovato will play Katiana, one of the best and most angelic singers in all of Iceland.
The Sorry Not Sorry singer celebrated her 27th birthday today, and Ferrell confirmed her casting with a birthday-themed video on social media.
“Hi everyone. Will Ferrell here on the set of my new movie Eurovision,” he said. “We want to make a very special announcement about a brand new cast member, and it just happens to be her birthday. I made her this wonderful cake from scratch.”
