Bonnie Tyler: 'I don't care if I win Eurovision'


Bonnie Tyler has revealed how she was chosen to represent the UK at this
year's Eurovision Song Contest, and spoken about coming last in the competition.









"I don't care if I win
Eurovision": Bonnie
Tyler

Bonnie Tyler will take to
the Eurovision Song Contest stage in Malmö, Sweden, next weekend to represent
the UK. However, although Tyler appears wary of how her performance will be
received, she says she doesn't care if she wins.


In an interview with The Telegraph, 61-year-old Tyler described herself as a
"Welsh lamb to the slaughter" ahead of the annual competition, now in its 58th
year. The UK has had a tough few years in Eurovision, infamously failing to gain
a single vote from another country in 2003 after duo Jemini sung Cry Baby.



However, while Tyler admits "it wouldn't be very nice to come last" in the
contest, she said: "I don't care if I win".


The Welsh singer, famous for Eighties hits such as Total Eclipse of the
Heart, will be entering the contest with Believe In Me, a song
recorded in Nashville which is taken from her new album, Celtic Swan, which was
released on Monday.

For the second year running, the BBC adopted a Papal-conclave approach to
choosing Britain's Eurovision representative, rather than putting it to a
popular vote, and simply announced – in March – it had picked Tyler.

No further details about the selection process were forthcoming at the time,
but Tyler revealed that she was chosen after an un-named executive at the BBC
heard an advanced copy of Celtic Swan.

She said: "Someone who had something to do with the Eurovision heard the
album and picked Believe In Me and came to my house and asked would I do the
Eurovision song contest. It was a bit of a shock."

The executive also suggester to Tyler that she could put back the release
date of the album – originally October last year – to coincide with the
Eurovision final.

It's not the first time Tyler has been asked to represent the UK. She was
approached in 1983, when she had number one singles at home and in America, but
she declined. However, she explains why she changed her mind this time round:
"It’s a bit political but let’s be realistic, 120 million people watch the
Eurovision, I’ve got a FANTASTIC new album coming out, somebody at the BBC likes
it… and I’m going to say no?"

The star added that the "music business has changed out of all recognition"
and she was being "realistic" entering the competition.

The Eurovision Song Contest will be aired on BBC One at 8pm next
Saturday 18 May.

Eurovsion: Can Tyler Beat Favourites Denmark?


Bonnie Tyler looks to restore some British pride after the
mauling given to Engelbert Humperdinck in last year's Eurovision.



5:06pm UK,
Friday 17 May 2013

Tyler is representing the UK with her latest single
Believe in Me










  • To have a chance of winning this year's Eurovision Song Contest,
    British hope Bonnie Tyler will have to outperfom the hot favourites from
    Denmark.

    Sky Bet rates Only Teardrops by Emmelie de
    Forest as 4/6 to bring the bacon home to the Danes, way ahead of the chasing
    pack.

    Sky makes Norway's I Feed You My Love by Margaret Berger second favourite at
    5/1, while Ukraine is at 8/1.
    Hot favourite: Emmelie de Forest

    Tyler had been hoping to avenge the dismal performance by the UK last year
    when Engelbert Humperdinck limped into second to last place with Love Will Set
    You Free.

    However, she is a rather longer shot at 50/1.

    And betting shows she is more fancied to come last than first with William
    Hill offering a price of 8/1 that she finishes bottom of the points table.

    Tyler, who is performing the track Believe in Me, has still managed to make a
    big impression in Malmo which has been her home for the past few days in
    preparation for the huge show.

    At a concert featuring five of the leading countries involved in
    backing Eurovision, the crowd was chanting her name as each of the acts came on
    stage.
    British fans haven't given up
    hope
    And as she and her team tucked in to a traditional Swedish feast in a local
    restaurant, the other diners joined in singing her entry.
