  • Madonna - surprise! - stirs controversy with Eurovision Song Contest performance

Eurovision confirmed they were not an approved part of the show and Madonna has "been made aware" the event is supposed to be "non-political".

The band, who landed tenth place in the Eurovision song contest, have said they are against Israel hosting the contest and describe dit as "whitewash", which has been the subject of boycott calls by pro-Palestinian groups. This element is an act that was not part of the rehearsals which were clarified by the European Broadcasting Union and host broadcaster Kan.

Unfortunately for poor Michael, he finished the contest last in the Eurovision 2019 results.

She defended her decision, issuing a statement earlier in the week saying that she would always speak up to defend human rights, and that she hoped to see "a new path toward peace". The Eurovision in Israel was already a highly politicized event, which was even pointed out by Netta, last year's victor, who said after her win that "we have done something insane [fantastic] for Israeli Hasbara".

The Netherlands won the Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv after coming top of the leaderboard with Duncan Laurence's performance of Arcade.

The Israeli organisers of this year's Eurovision feared that some of the competitors, under pressure from the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement, might inject politics into their performances.

In the south of the city, a beachside area was sealed off for a Eurovision Village spectators pavilion, where fans from different countries danced and watched the event on big screens.

But Rice added: "I've still had so much fun and I've not once doubted my talent or my singing".

Nevertheless, the show proceeded as planned, with Madonna performing songs like "Future" and "Like A Prayer" during her set.

He said: "Oh god, this is to music first".

Israel's hosting duties were embraced by the country and received intensive coverage and attention in recent days.

Because of Israel's decades-long occupation with the West Bank, the depiction of Palestinian flags in Israel is considered highly controversial.

During the vote counting of Sunday's finale, members of the eclectic Icelandic punk ensemble Hatari held up scarf-sized Palestinian flags.

The band, who dress in so-called BDSM outfits - bondage clothing including leather and whips - had been critical of Israel and previously challenged Netanyahu to a Glima, a Nordic folk wrestling match.
