The singing star Madonna is set to perform at the Eurovision Song Contest in Israel, and it will reportedly cost the organisers $1 million. The superstar, 60, is said to have agreed to make a guest appearance at the annual event which will be held in Tel Aviv in May.
Madonna will perform two songs — one of her hits and a new track — in what would be one of the show’s most expensive bookings to date, the European Broadcasting Union confirmed to the newspaper Haaretz. The “Material girl” singer will reportedly bring an entourage of 160 people for the show.
The Eurovision performance would be Madonna’s fourth in Israel. The mother-of-six previously performed in the state in 1993, 2009 and 2012.
Madonna, earlier this week, announced the dates for her ‘Madame X Tour’, a series of intimate performances taking place exclusively in theaters. ‘Madame X’ celebrates Madonna’s career-long affair with Latin music and culture as well as other global influences. Singing in different languages including Portuguese, Spanish and English, Madonna collaborated on the album with longtime producer Mirwais, as well as with producers Mike Dean and Diplo, among others.
