It's claimed that Madonna could be getting as much as $1 million for the performance, paid for by Israeli-Canadian billionaire Sylvan Adams. It would be when she makes that big appearance in Tel Aviv on 18 May.

Israel won the Eurovision Song Contest for the first time in two decades previous year, with Netta Barzilai's women's empowerment anthem, "Toy".
