Jon Ola Sand, the contest’s executive supervisor, made the announcement ahead of the competition’s semi-final on Thursday 16th May.
“We are pleased to finally confirm that the incomparable music icon Madonna will join us at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest,” he said.
“We know that it will be an evening to remember and can’t wait to share it with everyone watching.”
This will be a relief to fans, with Sand previously casting doubt on Madge’s involvement. On Tuesday this week, he claimed the singer still hadn’t signed a contract and negotiations were still taking place.
