Bonnie Tyler to represent UK at Eurovision Song Contest


Bonnie Tyler, famed for her hit Total Eclipse of the Heart, will sing the
UK's entry at the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest in Sweden.

Bonnie Tyler, the 61-year-old Welsh singer who had a No1 hit in 1983 with
Total Eclipse of the Heart, will represent the United Kingdom at this
year's Eurovision competition.



It's something of a move for youth by the UK selectors who last year chose
Engelbert Humperdinck, then 75, to sing in Azerbaijan. He came in 25th place
(out of 26) with 12 points after his performance of Love Will Set You
Free
.


Tyler will perform a track
called Believe In Me — a power ballad which was recorded in Nashville —
at the event in Malmö, Sweden. The big hair, padded shoulders, soaring vocals
and dry ice machines will surely be out in force to give 1980s nostalgists a
Euro treat.

    13 May 2011


Tyler, who was born in Skewen, South Wales, said: "I am truly honoured and
delighted to be able to represent my country at Eurovision and especially with
such a fabulous song. I promise to give this everything that I've got for the
UK."

She has a new album called Rocks & Honey out tomorrow and is
presently touring as a guest on the "Rock Meets Classic 2013 Tour" in Germany.
Her career started in 1970 when, aged 19, she entered a talent contest, singing
the Mary Hopkin hit Those Were the Days. She finished in second place,
winning £1. In recent years, the three-times Grammy-nominated singer, whose song
Holding Out for a Hero (written with Meat Loaf's songwriter Jim Steinman)
was featured on the Footloose film soundtrack in 1984, appeared on the
Romanian and Ukrainian series of X Factor as a special guest artist.


Bonnie Tyler - Total Eclipse of the Heart on
MUZU.TV.

Thirty-nine countries will participate in the 58th Eurovision Song Contest and as one of the
“Big Five” countries (along with Spain, Germany, France and Italy), the United
Kingdom gain automatic access to the Saturday grand finale on Saturday 18th May.
The UK has won the competition five times since 1957. The last victory was
Katrina and the Waves in 1997. Eurovision attracts an audience of more than
125million viewers.

The bookies weren't immediately impressed with the choice of Tyler, with
Ladbrokes offering 40-1 on the UK winning the Eurovision.
================
Well well well, Engelbert Last year, Bonnie this year, this contest , with all due respect is not for Pensioners.
What about younger singers or groups? More nil points I predict.

We have no chance of winning these days no matter who we enter!

A reminder of all the winners to date.

Who remembers Celine Dion winning in 1988 for Switzerland? Not me. She's certainly done well since then.

Nice one Chrissie!

The last winner for the U K was (the American) Katrina and the Waves in 1997.

Sorry Bonnie but you'll be singing "It's a Heartache" when this is over.

Thank goodness it's not Bonniebraes or we'd all be singing that song now.

Actually, I liked Bonnie Tyler, and her records. I think that comment from the author of the article summed it up when he suggested the British were going for younger contestants, , last years enrtey was 75.
BTW Bonnie Tyler and Catherine Zeta Jones both donated to the Auction to raise money for the April Jones appeal, another McCann copycat idea.

These are 2 comments, I found the second one very sad.

    this has been one of my favorite song's since I was 4 or 5 yrs old.. The first song I remember hearing, listening, and understanding the words to... at such a young age... but when your step father uses you as a punching bag every day, you quickly learn and realize that it's a heart ache.... <3 Thanks for this version! It's great quality! one of the best I've see and heard! xoxo

We will only win if the Eastern Block countries don't enter, if France, Spain, Portugal, Ireland in fact everyone else gives us some points. Don't gt your hopes up folks, the time of the Uk winning is well and truly over. In fact I don't know why we bother it isn't a song contest anymore but a political rally.

Hi Keela, I think the U.K. doesn't want to win , judging by the Singers they send to represent us.
I remember when there used to be heats on BBC T.V. and the winner represented Britain.

Do you not understand the aim is not to win.No civilised Nation can be arsed to make a proper effort.If we wanted to win we'd put up Robbie Williams.

I can just hear the EU saying "The Brits only want out of Europe because they are so embarassed about not being able to win the Eurovision Song Contest the most prestigious Award and think we are ganging up on them ".

I would be very surprised malena, I doubt her voice has the power it had a few years ago. Surely there are enough younger singers and groups who could have been chosen......they probably wouldn't have gone if they had been picked, the only Group who really succeeded big time was ABBA.

It isn't always the kiss of death to anyone's career to appear in the ESC - assuming that they already had one before then. Celine Dion and Julio Iglesias represented Switzerland and Spain respectively in 1988 and 1970 (she won, he didn't) and what happened to a young man called Cliff Richard after his appearances in 1968 and 1973?!

There is a shortage of talented artists nowadays, most singers and groups seem to cut one or two discs, then fade into nonentity, which is probably why they opt for old proven singers. Sadly one of the most wonderful singers around today, Susan Boyle, has been overlooked completely.
