Madonna has defended her decision to perform in Israel in the following statement:

QUOTE
"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. My heart breaks every time I hear about the innocent lives that are lost in this region and the violence that is so often perpetuated to suit the political goals of people who benefit from this ancient conflict. I hope and pray that we will soon break free from this terrible cycle of destruction and create a new path towards peace."

Sylvan Adams, who is paying the fee for the performance, confirms Madonna is performing. Madonna arrived in Israel last night.

'Like a Prayer' definitely being performed.

https://www.facebook.com/drownedmadonna/vid...97647757179608/

Sigh. It's of course one of her best songs and I adore it, but why does it have to be wheeled out at every given opportunity when she has a huge back catalogue right there!

I greatly welcome Like a Prayer getting performed to such a huge audience. i refer to it as her greatest song.
That said, i partially feel Hung Up may have got the arena up on its feet and possibly receive a greater sales boost.

Officially confirmed now!



Seems like it'll be similar staging to the Met Gala performance but amplified. I hope 'Like a Prayer' feels a bit more joyous than it has done in recent times rather than sounding 'darker' or stripped back. I can forgive her for using it yet again if it matches the pizazz of Eurovision.

Eurovision host Assi Azar speaking about Madonna's performance on Graham Norton's Radio 2 show:

QUOTE
"I saw the rehearsal yesterday," Assi Azar told Graham Norton on his Radio 2 show this morning.

"It's an amazing show, what she's doing on the stage. She's literally taking over our entire stage, changing it completely."

He continued: "I can say she's literally building a chapel inside our arena in 40 seconds. That's the time she has from the moment we get off the stage to the moment she goes on the stage. It's unbelievable."

And according to Assi, who'll be hosting the show alongside Erez Tal, Bar Refaeli and Lucy Ayoub live from Expo Tel Aviv, there was never any doubt in his mind that Madonna would be performing, despite all the conflicting reports.

"I think that we should be so honoured that Madonna came all the way here to perform for us," he said. "Of course. Both sides get a lot out of it – Eurovision gets Madonna, no need to explain, Madonna gets the 200 million viewers that are watching her tonight.

"Every time that something happened like she is performing, she's not performing, I thought, 'It's going to close at the end'. She's gonna perform at the end, so let's just move on from the ego issues of both sides."

Primal Scream lead singer Bobby Gillespie has commented on Madonna's decision to perform at Eurovision:



What a charming man. Really bugs me that people are so quick to attack Madonna because they know her name will sell (what are Primal Scream up to these days?) and that the vast amounts of humanitarian work just gets ignored. The last time Madonna performed at Tel Aviv she addressed the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and fought for peace, I'm sure she'll be using Eurovision as a platform to do much the same.

It was good after Like A Prayer.

Was Dark Ballet used after Like A Prayer before Future?

Future sounded better out of the two songs even though it’s not a great song. Like a prayer was flat as a pancake.

It wasn't great was it. Like a Prayer should have been euphoric - I'm kind of here for a chanting monk reimagining of it, just not at Eurovision.

The vocal alone was poor as was the arrangement of the song.
