Madonna to perform “Future” with Quavo at Eurovision 2019
The European Broadcasting Union officially announced today that Madonna will perform two songs during the Grand Final of the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest on 18 May: her 1989 smash hit Like A Prayer and a world exclusive of brand-new single Future, which she will perform together with American rapper Quavo.
Jon Ola Sand, Executive Supervisor of the Eurovision Song Contest, said:
We are pleased to finally confirm that the incomparable music icon Madonna will join us at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. Performing live during the biggest entertainment show in the world will be a special moment for everyone – not least the fans. The talent on display in the competition this year is phenomenal and I’m sure the artists will further be inspired by her incredible performance and staging. We know that it will be an evening to remember and can’t wait to share it with everyone watching.
Viewers of the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest Grand Final will be the first to hear Madonna’s track Future from her new album Madame X, to be released on 14 June. This year marks 30 years since the release of her iconic album Like a Prayer, and she will perform the title track accompanied by a 35-strong choir.
This will be the first time in the history of the contest that Madonna will grace the Eurovision stage, making the performance a once-in-a-lifetime treat for audiences all over the world. As one of the best-selling female artists in the world, selling more than 300 million records worldwide, her performance in Tel Aviv will be her third time [actually the fourth, following the Girlie Show, Sticky & Sweet and MDNA Tours] visiting and performing in Israel.
Madonna‘s participation a the Grand Final was also announced during the Second Semi Final tonight, but contrary to what previously reported by the local media there was no interview from the VIP Green Room.
