After Demi was spotted on the project’s U.K. set, Will took to Instagram to announce the news. Holding a cake he claimed to have made “from scratch,” the comedian wished Eurovision‘s latest star a very happy birthday. (Yes, Demi turned 27 yesterday.)

Where the fuck to start…… today was one of the happiest days of my life. Not because it was my birthday, not just because I’m living my dream and was doing something so exciting today, but because of my friends, family and MY LOVATICS!!!!! This bday was surreal.. invigorating.. inspiring.. funny.. touching… just everything positive you could think of. That was what my birthday was. Not only did this first video make me cry tears of gratitude because it features you guys, your words and some of my favorite moments in life but the second video is a perfect representation of how fucking hilarious you guys are and I laughed my ass off. Don’t worry, Cinderella gets JUST AS MUCH IF NOT MORE LOVE than Batman!!! Besides if she were in the basement, it was only because Poot was lonely. Third pic is my fans last year taking cardboard cutouts of me around the city and even got me a cake 😂😂😂 You have no idea how much I love you all. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU 🙏🏼 FOR THE LOVE, THE INSPIRATION, AND MOTIVATION!!! And thank you @kingcinders for the video and support 🙏🏼😭

The clip then cut to Lovato blowing out birthday candles next to a Eurovision film slate.
“y’all, Will Ferrell made me a cake…from scratch. It looks completely professional and store bought so I’m not at all suspicious that he baked it himself in all of his free time #netflixisajoke #eurovisionmovie,” she captioned the Instagram post.
