Madonna's press team confirmed the news to the BBC, but Eurovision organisers have downplayed the story.

The program's foreign correspondents will review the preparations on location ahead of the performances, and KAN's celebrated journalist Shani Nahshony will accompany the broadcast with news updates about what is happening behind the scenes of the Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv.

Concert promoters Live Nation Israel and the singer's USA representatives confirmed reports in Israeli media that Madonna will perform two songs in Tel Aviv during the three-day Eurovsion competition in May, which features musicians from more than 40 nations.
