Madonna at Eurovision Song Contest 2019

Just like last year there were rumors again that Madonna will be performing and finally the time has come: Madonna will give a show during the final of the Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv! It seems that she will play both an old hit and a new song. There was some discussion because it's a political song has a political (since 2018 it is forbidden to play songs with political content at ESC), but Madonna will probably sing the song anyway.

Voting & points

The professional juries of all participating countries award half of the points to be distributed. The viewers at home vote for the other half of the points during the live broadcast of the final.
