Is it an actual musical, or is it about people who happen to sing? Looks like the latter from the trailer.

It's a Will Ferrell movie about Eurovision. Definitely don't go in expecting high art. 

EDIT: I did watch this and it's very stupid and very fun.

Exactly. It’s Will Ferrell’s goof on the whole EUROVISION competition. It’s like his TALLADEGA NIGHTS spoofs race cars and BLADES OF STEEL spoofs male figure skating.

Iceland was actually an early favorite for 2020.  This is not the official video -

 

This is the "official video" which is a live performance:

I enjoyed it quite a bit. Rachel McAdams is great, as usual, and I was really moved by the song at the finale, which I wasn’t expecting. I enjoyed all the songs, actually. Dan Stevens is a lot of fun, too.

Dumb fun.  Loved the Iceland scenery, and seeing Nadja from "What We Do in the Shadows" in her little role in this.

I think it depends on how familiar you are with Eurovision. The Eurovision segments and songs are fantastic, very well done and very funny. great pastiche of the contest. the love story and will Farrell stuff around the Eurovision is less effective unless you're a big fan of his
