Madonna is set to play two songs during the interval of the Eurovision Song Contest in Israel next month, the BBC reports.

The pop icon will reach more than 180 million viewers when she takes to the stage in Tel Aviv on 18 May.

Her appearance was first announced by local promoters Live Nation Israel, who said the performance would be "both historical and hysterical".

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


"No final decisions have been made, or agreements signed," said the EBU in a statement to the BBC.

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