Madonna seems set to perform two songs during the interval of the Eurovision Song Competition, with a global audience of up to 180 million people. This time she is expected to debut a song from her 14th studio album, coming out this summer.

According to reports in the Israeli media, the MI native who is rumored to have purchased property in Tzfat will sing two songs on May 14, taking home a $1.5 million fee that was reportedly furnished by Israeli-Canadian billionaire Sylvan Adams. Once all the songs are performed then viewers in each country gets to vote for their favourite apart from their own country.

To participate in the contest, the participants from each country need to submit an original song, which is performed live. Malta will be represented by X Factor Malta victor Michela Pace during the second semi-final show with the song "Chameleon".

He said: "I am excited and proud to host Madonna in Israel and bring her to the Eurovision".

Despite all the hype that began once the BCC reported the news, Eurovision organizers said that "no final decisions have been made, or agreements signed".

"Official news and updates will come directly from the Eurovision channels in due course".

This would be Madonna's fourth performance in Israel.

Rumours that the queen of pop would perform at this year's Eurovision event in Israel have now been confirmed.

Traditionally host of the race is the victor country of the previous year.

The singer has a long association with Israel, and launched her MDNA tour in Tel Aviv in 2012.

Israel was chosen to host the contest after local singer Netta Barzilai won previous year in Portugal with "Toy", propelling her to worldwide stardom.
