Welsh pop singer Bonnie Tyler has been confirmed as the UK representative at the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest.

The 61-year-old, best known for her 1983 hit Total Eclipse of the Heart, said she was “honoured” to be asked.

“I promise to give this everything that I’ve got for the UK!” she said in a statement.

Tyler will be performing the song, Believe in Me, in front of an estimated 120 million viewers in Malmo, Sweden, on 18 May.

“I am truly honoured and delighted to be able to represent my country at Eurovision, and especially with such a fabulous song,” said Tyler.

Tyler, born Gaynor Hopkins in Neath, Wales, had her first hit single, Lost in France, in 1976.

She was nominated for three Grammy Awards in 1984, including best female pop vocal for Total Eclipse of the Heart.
