Neath-born Bonnie Tyler is famous for hits including 'Total Eclipse of the Heart' and 'Holding Out For a Hero'.
She is known for her husky singing voice - the result of an operation to remove nodules from her throat in 1976, which could potentially have ended her career before it started.
Bonnie credits the surgery with helping develop her trademark vocals and later that year scored her first hit when her second single 'Lost In France' made the top 10.
The 61-year-old singer, who represented the UK with 'Believe In Me', finished 19th out of 26 acts last night with 23 points.
The Welsh singer is flying the flag for the UK at the annual contest, which takes place at the Malmö Arena in Sweden this evening.
Bookmakers have given the Neath-born singer odds of 40-1 to win the contest, which will take place in Sweden.
