Mr. Sylvan Adams, the Israeli-Canadian billionaire and philanthropist, has apparently agreed to foot the bill for pop Mega superstar Madonna to perform at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest in May. Madonna, according to reliable sources is set to play two songs during the interval Act of the Eurovision Final on May 18th, and for this 7 minutes gig, she is rumored to receive over 1.3 million Dollars.
The 59-year-old billionaire and his business partner, Mr. Danny Ben Naim, have been in negotiations for months with israeli broadcaster Kan which is hosting the show, and Madonna's team. “We are holding round-the-clock negotiations with Madonna's people," said Ben Naim.
Adams, Canadian born, who made aliyah and immigrated to Israel in 2015, has become one of Israel's top honorary Ambassadors and philanthropists. Just last year, adams brought the annual bicycle race Giro d'Italia to Israel, a race that traditionally takes place in italy.
"Mr. Adams believes that the participation of an artist like Madonna in this year's show will significantly increase the exposure and media coverage of the Eurovision Song Contest itself and the corresponding events … as well as of the wonderful people and beauty of the State of Israel," Ben Naim added.
This is not the first time the Eurovision stage sees an international Megastar performing during the show. In 2016, when the competition took place in Stockholm, Justin Timberlake performed live during the Final, and used the opportunity to debut the live rendition of his summer hit, Cant Stop That Feeling. That was also the first year a USA broadcaster aired live the v show, but due to legal and copyrights retrictions, Timberlake's performance was not aired on the American TV.
