Molly Sanden may not be a household name, but she just beat out several other A-listers in our recent poll that asked 2021 Oscars viewers to vote for the best performance on the pre-show. The Swedish pop star took on the song “Husavik” from “Eurovision Song Contest” (watch above), stepping in for Will Ferrell
and Rachel McAdams
who memorably performed it during the Netflix
movie. She tops our poll results with 64%, more than four times her closest competitor. Here’s a closer look at the poll results:
64% — Molly Sanden (“Husavik”)
14% — H.E.R.
(“Fight for You”)
11% — Leslie Odom Jr.
11% — Laura Pausini
(“Io Si: Seen”)
0% — Celeste and Daniel Pemberton
(“Hear My Voice”)
