Madonna will also perform Like a Prayer with a 35-strong choir, some 30 years since the album of the same name was released.

This will be the first time in the history of the contest that Madonna will grace the Eurovision stage, and her performance in Tel Aviv will be her third time visiting and performing in Israel.

Jon Ola Sand, Executive Supervisor of the Eurovision Song Contest: "We are pleased to finally confirm that the incomparable music icon Madonna will join us at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. Performing live during the biggest entertainment show in the world will be a special moment for everyone – not least the fans. The talent on display in the competition this year is phenomenal and I’m sure the artists will further be inspired by her incredible performance and staging. We know that it will be an evening to remember and can’t wait to share it with everyone watching."
