Madonna is under fire from fans after what they describe as a lacklustre performance at the Eurovision song contest. One fan went as far as to say that her voice is not what it used to be.

Madonna hit back with a post on Instagram.

For her first song of the night, she walked down the stairs of the stage in a church robe to perform her new single "Future" with US rapper Quavo , after which she performed Like a Prayer. She was criticised for her vocal performance on both songs. She also used her song Future to make a political statement two backup dancers walked up to the stage, linking arms, with Israeli and Palestinian flags on their backs. The performance ended when the words “Wake up” flashed across a massive screen. Spokespersons for Eurovision said they were not made aware of this part of Madonna’s act and stated: “The Eurovision Song Contest is a non-political event and Madonna had been made aware of this.”
