The participation of the United Kingdom within the Eurovision Song Contest has not been deemed successful as of late due to the fact that the British Broadcasting Corporation are said to be out of touch with the way that the event is organised. For the past couple of years, most of the entries that finished within the top five have managed success in their respective regions whilst a number of winners including; Loreen, Lena Meyer-Landrut, and Alexander Rybak have broken through world markets. Following last years' disappointment, it was thought that the British Broadcasting Corporation might have learned but one cannot be too sure as their announcement took place earlier today stating that it is indeed Bonnie Tyler who will fly the flag for the United Kingdom.

In a official post by the British Broadcasting Corporation it has been confirmed that Bonnie Tyler will be performing the track Believe In Me co-written by Lauren Christy, Christopher Braide and Desmond Child. The track was recorded at Blackbird Studios in Nashville, Tenessee with production conducted by David Huff and then mixed at Eargasm Studios in Santa Monica, California by Justin Niebank. Desmond Child has previously worked with the likes of Diana DeGarmo, Cher, Aerosmith, Jon Bon Jovi and Anastacia amongst others. The first official radio play will be given on The Ken Bruce Show on Monday, 18th May which just happens to co-incide with the Heads of Delegation meeting where all entries have to be presented to the European Broadcasting Union. 

Katie Taylor, Head of Special Projects for the BBC stated that 'Bonnie is an artist with an international reputation and I am delighted that she has chosen to represent the UK in this year’s contest. It is a great song and a truly wonderful performance that I am sure will do the nation proud'. The United Kingdom will be taking part in the final of the Eurovision Song Contest due to their elite status as a big five member alongside France, Italy, Germany and Spain. The commentary on the night of the semi-finals will be done by Scott Mills, who is a renowned disc jockey with BBC Radio 1 as well as Sciccor Sisters star, Ana Matronic. For the final, Graham Norton will once more be keeping the public entertained. Ken Bruce will take off the radio listeners on BBC Radio 2.
