The U.K.’s Bonnie Tyler

Vebooboo: Bonnie scored major bonus points with Team Wiwi for showing emotional vulnerability when she broke down in today’s press conference. Sympathy aside, we have to say that Bonnie is struggling with the vocals. We admire Bonnie’s walk to the centre of the stage, where a platform lifts her into the air. But these tricks won’t mask the fact that her voice is ailing as it turns more and more hoarse. We just hope girl can save some energy for Saturday and turn it out — a last place finish would be major embarrassment for someone with such an established career.

Wiwi: After watching her rehearsal video below, check out our footage from her first press conference where she sings “Total Eclipse of the Heart.” Call it a total eclipse of the voice….

In my last evaluation of all 39 entries this past weekend, I put the U.K. in 6th. The bookies had them barely missing the top 10 (12th). I’d love to see Bonnie go out with a bang; but I suspect that, if she finishes way down among the field of 26 (as did Engelbert Humperdinck), the U.K. will never trust an aging veteran or a long-dormant has-been again. Been 4 years since they placed very high.
