The Show

The Grand Final of Eurovision 2019 was hosted by Bar Refaeli, Erez Tal, Assi Azar and Lucy Ayoub, live from Expo Tel Aviv.

Some special guests made the show even more entertaining, Israeli winners Netta and Dana International at the opening act; Conchita, Måns Zelmerlöw, Eleni Foureira and Verka Serduchka during the interval along with Gali Atari, who won for Israel in 1979.

The icing on the cake was put by American pop star Madonna performing 1989 classic ‘Like A Prayer’ and a new single ‘Future’, which she sang together with the also American rapper Quavo. A 35 string choir was accompanying Madonna on ‘Like A Prayer’. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the landmark album of the same name. As far as her new song goes, the performance of ‘Future’ was in anticipation of her next album entitled ‘Madame X’ which won’t be released until June 14.
