I saw a Eurovision tweet earlier saying major artist announcement at 7pm UK time but couldn't post as this place is blocked at work 😂

Yeah it was probably an April Fool. It wasn't the Eurovision official channel though. 🤷

At least we have a big X now

  • May 6th, 2016 - Earliest News Reports about a new Single & Album

Justin Timberlake Confirms New Album, Hints He's Going Country (E! Online)

The Single "Can't Stop the Feeling!" gets released on the same day.

  • May 9th, 2016 - Confirmation of Eurovision Performance

  • May 14th, 2016 - Justin Timberlake performs his new single at the ESC Final
  • May 15th, 2016 - News Reports about the performance

  • May 16th, 2016 - Official music video to "Can't Stop the Feeling!" gets released 
  • May 18th, 2016 - News Reports on the Chart Performance (official Billboard Charts week May 28th, 2016)

So... hopefully Madonna does perform at the Eurovision this year… and hopefully she can duplicate the success Justin had… so if Madonna really does perform the earliest confirmation from the EBC itself will come one week before the final... if they follow the pattern from 2016...

So that would translate to the following schedule for Madonna:

May 10th - Single Release & Official Album News
May 13th - Official Confirmation of ESC Performance
May 14th - Madonna arrives in Israel
May 15th - Rehearsals Begin / YouTube Videos of the Rehearsals
May 18th - ESC Performance

May 20th - New Madonna Music Video

Interesting read and thank you. Sounds good except Madonna NEEDS to release the video simultaneously. She needs any scrap off streaming points she can get.

So I haven't read through the whole thread. To me, this is equivalent to the yearly: "Madonna is going to appear at MTV AWARDS/GRAMMY AWARDS", etc.  So is there really any factual evidence proving this is more than just wishful thinking/rumour?

Yes, though no ‘official’ confirmation.

Dana International said on saturday at Eurovision in Concert she will be the interval act during the final for Eurovision. So that means probably no Madonna!

CONFIRMED????

Veteran US singer and international star Madonna will perform at next month’s Eurovision Song Contest broadcast in Israel, the Live Nation Israel production company confirms, according to Hebrew-language media reports.

https://www.timesofisrael.com/liveblog_entry/madonna-will-perform-at-eurovision-in-israel-production-company/

Madonna will perform at the Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv in May, the European Broadcasting Union has confirmed.

The singer will likely perform two songs – a popular hit and a new song. The pop superstar and the contest's producers have previously butted heads, apparently because the new song she plans to debut contains political messages.

all of the past Israeli winners are going to perform or do something or whatever ... the reports are saying that Madonna will perform too... they are also talking about 2 surprise artist
I think they are doing too much... but whatever 
the thing is that now it's all over the big news websites here in Israel but I guess we will be only sure when it will come from her team

if she does it, i hope she does a BIG production. Like...really big. That will be the opportunity to have a proper come back in Europe.

i'm pretty sure Like A Prayer will be that "hit song" they are talking about. Very predictable..

I think it's a battle between Like A Prayer or La Isla Bonita.

LIB is a good option when the new single she's gonna perform is the latin one...that will blend very well. Maybe Maluma will be there also.
