Madonna will perform live at the Eurovision grand finale in Tel Aviv on May 28.
Israel’s public broadcaster KAN confirmed Monday the report by Yediot Aharonot. The costs of bringing the international superstar to Israel will be covered by Israeli-Canadian billionaire Sylvan Adams.
Last month Adams said he sees himself as an unofficial ambassador of Israel in the entertainment world.
“Its a tremendous way to boost tourism,” he said at the INTV conference in Jerusalem. “And I think the more people we bring here, the more people see our true nature, and the true beauty of our country and our people, and the freedom and openness and tolerance and safety of our country.”
