Eurovision Song Contest 2013

Tonight is the night we've all been waiting for, It' time to find out what our neighbours across Europe REALLY think of us. This year representing the UK is another "oldie" Bonnie Tyler with Believe in me. I wasn't convinced on this song at first I thought Oh great another Engelbert where the song doesn't capture our imagination. Believe in me is slower than we are used to from Bonnie but powerful. Now I have thoroughly staked my claim in team #BelieveInBonnie we should take a look at who is in the final*
