Bonnie Tyler is to appear on the BBC1’s One Show tonight, 19 March 2013.

The singer will perform her entry to this year’s Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö and chat with hosts Alex Jones and Matt Baker about how she feels to be representing the UK. She’ll also perform her entry to the competition, Believe in me.

Throughout her long career, Bonnie Tyler has made many appearances performing her music on television. Most recently, in November last year, she sang her 1984 hit record Holding out for a hero on the Veteran’s Day broadcast of the US show, Dancing with the stars.

Bonnie Tyler was chosen internally by the BBC to represent the UK at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. She recently told the Sun newspaper that she had been approached by the BBC to do Eurovision back in 1983, but that the time didn’t feel right.  Bonnie’s career was kick started when she won a talent contest in 1970 at the age of 19 singing the Mary Hopkin song Those were the days. In that same year, Mary Hopkin represented the UK at the Eurovision Song Contest in Amsterdam with the song Knock, knock, who’s there?

Bonnie Tyler’s new album Rocks and honey is already available in Germany and some other countries, UK fans can pre-order theirs ahead of the May release date, see Bonnie’s website for details.
