Madonna teases Eurovision performance ‘for her fans’ as she arrives in Tel Aviv

Madonna’s Eurovision Song Contest final performance was up in the air after organisers admitted she has yet to sign a contract. However, the Queen of Pop landed in Tel Aviv, Israel, late last night and headed straight to rehearsal, basically confirming she will be the final interval act. Madge was pictured disembarking a private plane in Tel Aviv on Tuesday night as the first Eurovision semi-final took place at Expo Tel Aviv.

The 61-year-old teased her grand performance over on Instagram - without mentioning Eurovision, of course, because that would be telling. The Medellin singer posted a Boomerang of rehearsals, and wore a black corset and an eye patch as a dancer wrapped herself around Madonna’s leg. After this, she shared a close-up of her face, as she wore a ‘Madame X’ patch, cross-studded embellished sleeves and a crystal headpiece. Both posts were captioned: ‘Madame X is preparing something special for her fans...’

Comments reading ‘Eurovision???????’ flooded the posts, with one fan writing: ‘Welcome to ISRAEL Queen!!!’ Another comment read: ‘Just landed in Tel Aviv and went straight to rehearsal. That’s DEDICATION y’all.’ However, others were disappointed, with one person writing: ‘I’m so disappointed you went to Israel, obviously publicity is more important to you than the suffering of the Palestinian people.'

Roger Waters was among those asking Madonna to cancel her Eurovision performance in Israel, due to the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories and the violation of Palestinian human rights. However, the Like A Virgin star seemed to reject calls to boycott the contest, saying: ‘I’ll never stop playing music to suit someone’s political agenda nor will I stop speaking out against violations of human rights wherever in the world they may be.

It is thought Madge is set to perform a new song from her album Madame X, as well as a classic hit, believed to be Like A Prayer. She will be performing at the interval of the final, after the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Israel, Cyprus, Iceland, Australia, San Marino, Slovenia, Belarus, Serbia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece and 10 other nations to be decided in the second semi-final try their best to be named Eurovision champ 2019. It is believed Madonna is being paid $1 million (£764,000) for the gig.
