Eurovision 2019: Madonna to Perform in Tel-Aviv, Israel

Madonna will perform at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv, the singer’s rep confirms.

The contest, an international showcase of musical talent in which 43 countries participate, is set for May 14 to 18.

Madonna will perform two songs, a classic from her repertoire and a new single, at the show’s May 18 finale. She is expected to release a new album this year.

Eurovision has become a popular annual event since it began in 1956.

Last year’s winner was Israeli Netta Barzilai, who took the top prize in Lisbon, Portugal with the song “Toy.”

The 64th edition of the contest will be broadcast around the world from the Expo Tel Aviv International Convention Center in Israel with semi-final shows on May 14 and 16, and the final broadcast on May 18.
