Disney meets the Eurovision (part 2)

Whose voices have we heard both in Disney movies and at the Eurovision Song Contest? Here's a list which tries to be as complete as possible.

Being the list pretty long, I decided to only include Disney classics, their sequels and the so-called "releted products" (The Nightmare Before Christmas, Mary Poppins...). No secondary products, no live actions and similar.

All acts are sorted by Eurovision first appearence. The year that follows the Disney movie(s) is not the year in which the movie was released, but that of the release of the dubbing the artist took part to.

Yes, many artists are still missing (especially for older editions of the contest), so come one, come all and help me out filling the list up!

Ulrikke the Norwegian contestant of Eurovision 2020 is the voice of Mirabel from Encanto

IceyIcey    Mon, 03/01/2022 - 17:27

I know, but since ESC 2020 never occurred, I decided not to include it on this list

jerexjerex    Mon, 03/01/2022 - 19:26

I know Eurovision 2020 has been canceled and even though Ulrikke and all the other candidates this year weren't able to perform on stage they all have a lot of experience, and in my opinion include the artists from ESC 2020 in their role in Disney is a simple tribute.

jerexjerex    Sun, 09/01/2022 - 16:39

And I learned today that the Croatian voice actor of Camilo is Damir Kedzo, but as you said you didn't include the artists of ESC 2020 but I wanted just to inform you of that.
