Similar to her predecessor Engelbert Humperdinck, Bonnie notched up a number of chart-toppers all around Europe back in the 70’s and 80’s. She’s over 60 years of age, and she hasn’t had a hit in the last 10 years. Is this a good choice?
The BBC seem to think that big hair, gold sequins, shoulder pads and power ballads are experiencing a resurgence. Tyler will sing a power ballad recorded in Nashville titled ‘Believe In Me’. She’s actually been performing it on her recent tour. Here it is:
“It is an honour to represent my country and is also a wonderful way to ensure that my song Believe in Me reaches the widest possible audience,” she said as part of the announcement. “It is a very strong, catchy and melodic song that appeals to a wide range of people. Desmond Child partially wrote this song at the dinner table at his house in Nashville whilst we were all eating together.”
