Serving looks like only the Queen of Pop can, Madge was wearing a multi-coloured print blouse and matching shorts over fishnets, and accessorised with numerous necklaces and a pair of plastic goggles. The category is welder realness. Madonna wore her hair in plaited pigtails and donned a pair of heel boots as she strutted into Hangar 11, where her Future collaborator Quavo was holding a surprise gig. The Migos rapper flew into Israel ahead of his performance with Madge on Saturday night, and the pop legend watched the hip-hop star perform hits like Motor Sport and Bad and Boujee before the nightclub cleared out for a Euroclub bash.
She will be performing Future, from her new album Madame X, with Quavo, as well as her classic song Like A Prayer, during the interval act in Expo Tel Aviv on Saturday night. The Like A Virgin star’s appearance at Eurovision was first rumoured back in April, with reports claiming she would be paid $1 million (£764,000) for playing two songs at the final. However, just days ago, her performance was still up in the air. Eurovision executive organiser Jon Ola Sand said on Monday: ‘The European Broadcasting Union has never confirmed Madonna as an act. If we do not have a signed contract she cannot perform on our stage.’
However, Madonna arrived in Tel Aviv late on Tuesday night, and shared pictures and videos of rehearsals to Instagram, saying she was planning something ‘special’ for her fans. And in the press room at the Eurovision venue on Thursday night, her performance was officially confirmed by organisers.
