Rumours are swirling that the Queen of Pop has signed on to perform at Song Contest Eurovision. We might just be getting international star Madonna to grace the stage in Tel Aviv.While negotiations have been ongoing, major financier Sylvan Adams has indicated that, so far, things are “looking very good”.
The Jerusalem Post reports
The Jerusalem Post reports that the Canadian-Israeli billionaire has been apparently wooing the singer for months.Speaking at the Keshet INTV Conference at the YMCA in Jerusalem, Adams said he became involved with the upcoming Eurovision in Tel Aviv in the hopes of bringing a huge-name artist to the show.

Reportedly Israeli-Canadian billionaire Sylvan Adams offered to pay Madonna $1.5 million for her performance.We’ve reached out to Madonna to try to add a little bit of glitz to the event. It’s looking very good that she’s going to come here and participate in the Eurovision Song Contest.”
According to Danny Ben-Naim, one of Adams’ business partners: The 60 year old pop-singer, who has performed in Israel many times throughout her career, is expected to agree to the offer in the coming days.
Israel won the rights to host the 2019 Eurovision when Netta Barzilai was named winner with her song “Toy” for Eurovision 2018 competition.Earlier this month, announced that Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli will host the contest by KAN news, which represents Israel on the European Broadcasting Union (EBU).
The Eurovision 2019 Song Contest will be held on between the 14th and 18th of May in Tel Aviv.
The cycling event
The move fits with Adams’ ongoing efforts to fashion himself as a cultural emissary and broker for Israel. He previously brought the prestigious Giro d’Italia to country. The cycling event, which mostly takes place in Italy, had its starting leg in Israel last year.
It’s currently establishing a cultural foundation to bring artists to Israel in order to promote its standing in the world. Israel calling, anybody?
Speaking about Israel’s recent hosting of Giro d’Italia, Adams says it was just the start of something new:“The Giro d’Italia was proof of concept – it was proof that there is no event that we cannot host here. We have the expertise to manage everything.”
The event is intended to attract over 10,000 international participants. The number of international visitors over the last 3 years has almost doubled to Tel aviv. Expected to reach this year 2019 an overall new all-time high.
Sylvan’s business partner informed Ynet that:
Sylvan Adams he devotes his life to branding and strengthening the state of Israel by bringing sports events to culture and innovation. We are in round-the-clock negotiations with Madonna’s people and we hope that in the next few days we will sign her arrival at the Eurovision Song Contest in Israel.
Sylvan Adams believes that the participation of an artist like Madonna in the Eurovision will significantly increase the exposure and media coverage of the Eurovision Song Contest and the events that accompany it, and through Madonna’s visit to Israel, millions will be exposed to the wonderful people and beauty of the State of Israel.

Madonna at Eurovision 2019?
YNet first reported that KAN had been holding talks with gay icon. American Pop superstar to be the main interval act for Eurovision 2019 in mid-January.
It’s not as ludicrous as you might think. Madonna has a strong connection with Israel, starting with her Israeli manager, Guy Oseray, her Hebrew name, Esther, which she adopted back in 2004, and her well-known connection to Kabbalah.

She has had a few concerts in Israel over the years.There have even been reports about a penthouse she bought in Tel Aviv. She’s said to have looked at her lineage – and into her soul – and reach the conclusion that she says she’s not Jewish, but an Israelite.
Madonna last performed in Israel during the summer of 2012.
