Madonna likely to perform at Eurovision Song Contest in Israel


Madonna is just days away from signing a contract to perform at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest in Israel.

Canadian billionaire Sylvan Adams is apparently bankrolling the cost of bringing Madonna to Israel. The effort is likely to cost more than $1 million.

Tel Aviv will host the 2019 song contest after Netta won last year’s competition with her song, Toy.

According to Ynet News, Adams has been in talks with Madonna for more than a month and her signing the deal is imminent.

‘We are in round-the-clock negotiations with Madonna’s people and we hope that in the next few days we will sign her arrival at the Eurovision Song Contest in Israel,’ Adams’ business partner told Ynet.

‘Sylvan Adams believes that the participation of an artist like Madonna in the Eurovision will significantly increase the exposure and media coverage of the Eurovision Song Contest and the events that accompany it, and through Madonna’s visit to Israel, millions will be exposed to the wonderful people and beauty of the State of Israel.’

It will be a busy year for the pop queen, as she also is the major ambassador for the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. On New Year’s Eve she surprised people at the Stonewall Inn in New York and performed an acoustic version of Like A Prayer.

The Eurovision Song Contest runs from 14-18 May, 2019 in Tel Aviv, Israel.
