There were quite a few of us who didn’t really believe our eyes when we read that BBC was going to send Bonnie Tyler to represent the UK in 2013! Back in the 80s she was one of the biggest star in many countries across Europe; in Norway, for instance, she might have been the biggest!
As mentioned above, Bonnie represented the United Kingdom at the 2013 Eurovision in Malmö. She performed “Believe in Me” (something we all did until we heard the first live rehearsals), finishing in 19th place, thus giving the UK one of their depressingly few top 20 results in the past couuple of decades. Hopefully they’ll be back with a vengance in the 20s!
