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.

Well I have to say she has guts :-D

I never watch it - saw it when Dana won with "All kinds of everything" -?? Think that was it

no wonder I wasn't much cop at geography in school - I had no idea that Aezerbaijan was in Europe - along with a lot of other countries :-S :-S

We stopped watching it many yonks ago . Too much political voting and music tastes differ so much for each country that to me seems pointless.

She is old hat too sorry .she has guts though :-(

It isn't in Europe it is Asia Minor.

The Europe handle is a hang over thing from when it was first tsarist possession and then a USSR republic and Russia decided where "Europe" was.

In any case David Cameron and William Hague believe nearby Turkey is in Europe while Bulgaria and Romania are clearly not.

A former foreign secretary, Douglas Hurd, believed that Serbia, Croatia etc were also clearly not in Europe and therefore NATO (an organisation founded to protect peace in Europe) had nothing to do.

FIFA / EUFA also have an elastic definition of Europe and it would be perfectly possible for Vladivostock to host a game if it had a good enough team.

So don't worry about your school geography.

Blondie should get all the BBC2 listeners bouncing away on the sofa anyway, smart move by the Beeb. She is up against some tuff stuff, the home team have a Black Sabbath heavy metal number ( rustling sounds as Blondie fans hide behind the sofa ).

Nul points, quelqu'un ?

Eurovision is one of my guilty little viewing pleasures, I'm afraid, even though the voting patterns drive me nuts :-D

Bring it on Bonnie!!


It's a heartache, nothing but a heartache
Hits you when it's too late, hits you when you're down
It's a fools' game, nothing but a fool's game
Standing in the cold rain, feeling like a clown.
