Bonnie Tyler, the veteran singer who represented the United Kingdom at the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest has remained upbeat after her Eurovision appearance.
The Welsh singer finished in 19th place out of 26 countries at the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest in Sweden with her song Believe in me.
I’m sure a lot of people will be disappointed on my behalf but I have really enjoyed my Eurovision experience. I did the best that I could do with a great song. I don’t feel down, she told BBC.
Denmark’s Emmelie de Forest won the annual contest with the song Only Teardrops, which earned 281 points.
Tyler achieved just 23 points in comparison, but the score was an improvement on Engelbert Humperdinck’s 12 points total last year.
The songs at the top of the table totally deserve to be up there, of course I would have liked to bring it back to the UK but it’s been a night to remember, the 61-year-old continued.
I’m so glad and so happy that I did it because it was an incredible experience. It was like the Grammy Awards all over again, added Tyler.
An average of 7.7 million people watched BBC One’s coverage of the Eurovision Song Contest, reaching a peak of 9.2 million.
