Madonna 'to perform on Eurovision 2019 final'

Once all the songs are performed then viewers in each country gets to vote for their favourite apart from their own country.

It's claimed that Madonna could be getting as much as $1 million for the performance, paid for by Israeli-Canadian billionaire Sylvan Adams.

Madonna plans to perform during the Eurovision Song Contest in Israel next month, but her appearance during the interval of the annual festival could prove controversial amid calls to boycott the event, according to reports. One song will be a well-known single, while the other will be a track off of one of her upcoming album.

Despite all the hype that began once the BCC reported the news, Eurovision organizers said that "no final decisions have been made, or agreements signed".

The possibility of Madonna performing is likely only to further incite anger among activists.

In any case, Eurovision 2019 has just officially acquired an extra element of excitement and memorability due to Madonna's confirmation.

Israel won the right to host Eurovision this year by virtue of the fact that Hod HaSharon's Netta Barzilai won the popular global musical competition last year.

Stars including Pink Floyd's Rogers Waters and fellow musician Brian Eno, as well as filmmakers Ken Loach and Mike Leigh, have called for a boycott of the event.

The program's foreign correspondents will review the preparations on location ahead of the performances, and KAN's celebrated journalist Shani Nahshony will accompany the broadcast with news updates about what is happening behind the scenes of the Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv. The country with the most points is declared the victor.

Madonna will perform two songs in the Eurovision final, however we do not know yet which ones.
